Racing Simulations

Growing up in an 'F1 family' where waking up at 02:00 to watch the races in Japan or Australia seemed normal, it wasn't a bit stretch to find myself playing racing games. Things really started out with Nigel Mansell's World Championship, which although certainly not a simulation, led me onto F1GP on the Commodore Amiga.

After progressing through and spending many years modding the Geoff Crammond Formula One simulations for myself, I started to run IndyCar Racing and NASCAR Racing from Papyrus Racing Games. In 1998 Papyrus released Grand Prix Legends, this had a huge impact on my entire life; I founded a Web site about it, began racing online with it, and it actually led me to where I am today; working for a racing sim developer.

Grand Prix Legends (1998):

Apart from the occasional rFactor mod, I didn't run anything other than iRacing (who I worked for) for a long time. In 2010 I started to work for Image Space Incorporated, deep into development of rFactor 2 at the time. That's all I run these days, I just don't have the time to run anything else!

 

Time Trials End-of-season Report

Information might not be up-to-date.

I think this was a pretty successful season. I won eight certificates.

All the oval time trials were won in Division 10. I hadn’t time trialled much and was really surprised to find myself in that division and decided to go for every oval series I could. It turned out to be a close fight in a few of them and in those I’m happy to have still got a top-three.

On the road side I only competed in two series and had been placed in Division 5. I finished fifth in the Spec Racer and third in the Skip Barber – I’m more delighted with that than I am with most of the oval certificates!
