In the Summer of 1992 I had my first experience of what I would later know as sim racing. Microprose Grand Prix, created by Geoff Crammond was a revelation to my 8 year old self, and those early laps, dicing with the likes of Senna and Alesi set me on a path from which I’ve rarely strayed since.
Driving games have been a feature in my life for as long as I can remember. What started with those adolescent efforts on my fathers PC, through many years dabbling with titles on both PC and console, has today grown into an (almost) full time endeavour.
I have worked in creative spaces for much of my adult life, so it was perhaps inevitable that I would end up turning this focus towards sim racing. And, in the spring of 2018 this manifested itself in the YouTube channel for which I have become known. So, now I have the dubious honour of playing both the frustrated racing driver and the tortured artist in the same medium!
On this website, you will find videos and articles about racing sims like Assetto Corsa, RFactor, iRacing and RaceRoom. I guess I’m best known for my YouTube videos about Assetto Corsa mods, but I also make videos looking at sim racing hardware as well as race videos. Looking to the future, I hope to incorporate some regular streamed content as well.
