My history starts with flight sims rather than racing sims. I convinced my parents at age 12 to buy me some flight controls, and I soon discovered they could (barely) double up as a wheel and pedals. 90 degrees lock-to-lock, absolutely no force feedback, and almost no pedal travel. However, it was enough for me to catch the bug: I started with LFS, then the F1 games, Race 07 and even a very short stint on iRacing.
University and work sadly got in the way, but after a break of 10 years I came back to iRacing in June 2019 when I even treated myself to my first ever set of wheel and pedals! I quickly targeted the iLMS series, I was so excited to try out the multiclass racing that I enjoy watching in the WEC. I started in the GTEs and I stayed there until January 2020 when I finally made the switch to LMP1. I instantly fell in love with the car: the downforce, the hybrid boost, and the action you get lapping cars while still fighting for your own race is incredible.
Joining my first team was an eye-opener to the fun that team racing can add, and I hope to be to be a part of TBR for a while yet!
