Our drivers have a wide range of racing backgrounds and work together closely as a team to ensure that everyone can be successful on track. We allow our drivers to bring their sponsors onboard to get them more exposure of being on the virtual cars. By having a mix of professional racing drivers and sim racers, our drivers have access to the best of both worlds as they can share their views on racing behind a screen or out on the track to overcome any obstacle. With all of our paints done in house we can truly satisfy the drivers needs in terms of how they want their car to look.

My love & passion for racing comes from my Dad who was a Speedworth oval racer back in the 80’s until the early to mid 90’s – I was very young at the time but do remember many great times spent at the ovals around the UK and have always attended Brands Hatch since around 4 years old.
Naturally I’ve always been into cars and racing since then, Apart from Kart racing and Trackdays I haven’t been too much involved with the circuit side of motorsport bar spectating.
The only motorsport I have been involved with up to now is I’m currently a Drift Instructor with Prodrift Academy UK
From the 2020 Season onwards I am driving for One Ball Racing Team in the CSCC (Classic Sports Car Club) Gold Arts Magnificent Sevens Series (Class B) in the teams Caterham 310R #77, due to the current situation we’re using this year as a test to develop us as a team and the car ready to really push for some results next season.
I am very pleased and excited to be a part of the Luxsim24 eSports team, I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
eSports/Sim racing really is the best most affordable and best practice you can get without breaking the bank from the comfort of your own home. The realism of sims at this current time is so close to what you experience in a real car in terms of feel/immersion/dynamics, whether you’ve got a small or big budget sim racing can be enjoyed by all ages.
A massive extended thank you to all my sponsors who’re supporting me on my journey:
