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!

 

2008S3 Week 1 – iRacing Late Model Tour – USA

I wasn’t going to post this one, but as it’s the only Late Model race I think I’ll be doing this week (I am addicted to both the Silver Crown and the Mazda), I thought I would.

It wasn’t very eventful. I didn’t qualify and started in seventh place, I finished sixth and had no incidents. I was iRated as the fifth best driver, but I don’t think I was any faster than those who finished ahead of me. My fastest lap was a 22.783, set on lap six.

I make a pass for sixth place in the Late Model.
