Another wet race, and easily my most competitive race of my iGP Management career. I started in the front, and stayed there, only losing out when I made the wrong choice of tire for just 7 laps of the race.
I was actually in third place, and looked good enough to keep it, when I pitted as the rain had stopped, but instead of going from Wet to Intermediate tires, I went straight to softs, and went backwards…
I felt pretty good about the race. My drivers against looked invincible in wet conditions, and that has me pretty excited about upcoming races this winter (when snow is shown as wet in iGP races).
Another race tomorrow, this time in Hungary. It looks like it’ll be a dry race, so I’m not sure how well things will go, but I do finally have all my car components at 100% for this season. I can now start to solidly design next seasons car.
I began my gaming journey via the family Commodore Vic-20, then later with my own C-64 and Amiga A600. These systems kept my attention until I moved up to PCs around the Windows MS-DOS Pre-Windows 95 era, which means I never really got into the console gaming market in a big way.
My parents spent a significant amount of time sharing my early gaming experiences, and this really helped foster my interests. I discovered racing games and space games for the first time, and those are still my main genres of interest to this day.
These days I use gaming to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch, and enjoy the social interaction with viewers and other gamers.
