Alex Day, better known online as FailRace, is an English YouTuber who primarily uploads racing games contents, specifically the Forza Motorsport series among other games. Alex was born back on September 18, 1992 and according to astrology his zodiac sign is Virgo.
A recurring special feature of FailRace’s channel is “Survive the Hunt,” a more-or-less-monthly contest in which FailRace attempts to evade a dozen or more players while blending in with AI-controlled traffic and pedestrians within the Los Santos region of the GTA V map. For the challenge, player identification icons and maps are disabled, forcing FailRace to continually watch for unusual activity among other vehicles, and the hunters to likewise attempt to detect any non-AI-style activity that might give FailRace’s location away; the goal is for FailRace to survive for 24 hours of game time (approximately 50 minutes in real time) without his character being killed. In more recent (2019 onwards) editions, he is given the additional challenge of destroying certain vehicles placed around the map.
A variant of the concept, “Hunt the Survivors”, is occasionally played on Forza Horizon 4, only with FailRace taking on the task of tracking down other players, again without benefit of a map or player icons. When viewers began to realize that the run time of the YouTube video usually gave away whether or not FailRace was successful in “Survive the Hunt”, he began adding filler content at the end of failed challenges in order to standardize the video running time.
This YouTube channel was set up on June 1, 2011 and the first video, entitled ‘FailRace Episode 1’, was uploaded on June 6, 2011. This video only featured Alex Day and Daniel Handover and was intended to be a weekly show featuring the most spectacular fails in racing games. This was the premise that set up the content of the channel over the next four years. Husky (Ryan Mawson) joined Alex and Daniel at a later date and was generally well-received by the minimal fans and subscribers. It was therefore decided that these three friends would make up FailRace. As of April 2022, the YouTube channel of Failrace has more than 509 thousand subscribers, there are about 5035 uploaded videos and more than 194 million total number of views.
As it was mentioned Alex Day created the ‘FailRace’ YouTube channel in June 2011. He, alongside Daniel, uploaded the first video on this channel. Alex has always been considered ‘head’ of FailRace. Since the disappearance of Daniel and Husky in 2015, he has uploaded all the videos on the channel, and is a (almost) regular uploader. Alex likes to race (and is usually extremely fast in) silly cars, has admitted that he races ‘dumb vehicles’, and likes to roll the vehicles. His absurd ideas are a source of much fun among fans and followers. His gamertag is Ca5ino Royale. On the channel, he is known for his ability to deliver ongoing, usually humorous commentary as he competes in races, Survive the Hunt and others.
