Steve Pizzati is an Australian race driver, driving instructor, television presenter and free-lance motoring journalist. He was born in Melbourne to Italian parents; he did not learn to speak English until he was four years old.[1]

In 2008, he was selected from 4,000 applicants to be one of the presenters of Top Gear Australia on SBS TV.[2] In 2010 he was the only host selected by the Nine Network to continue with the new broadcaster thus making him the only host to have been a part of all four series of the show.

Pizzati is also a regular host of the Top Gear Live and Top Gear Festival shows having joined Top Gear UK hosts Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond for the ten performances of the Top Gear Live stadium show at Acer Arena in Sydney in February 2009 and again with Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Shane Jacobson for the Top Gear Festival at Sydney Motorsport Park in 2013 and 2014.

Pizzati is also Radio 3AW Melbourne's motoring expert, co-hosting a motoring program called 'Motor mouth' with Peter 'Grubby' Stubbs and Diane 'Dee Dee' Dunleavy every Sunday.
