Started off my racing career in 1995 with a Nascar game and a joystick, followed up by Grand Prix 1 and Grand Prix 2 by Geoff Crammond. Also drove them with a joystick. Got my first steering wheel when I bought Grand Prix Legends in 1999. That's where I start counting as a start in simracing. Driving that brutal sim is where I learned to control a racecar. After that, I did a lot of GTL and GTR1 and finally, I decided to go online in 2008 to test myself against humans. The rest is history.
