Bio: Husband, father, sim racer. I have been playing racing games for as long as I can remember.


It all started back on the original Playstation system with the original Gran Turismo. Friends and I would sit around for hours running the drag races that were in the original game. Our goal was to create a 10 second Honda. Keep in mind that this was in 1997. A 10-second Honda was a really big deal back then. I'm happy to say that we were successful.


My passion for sim racing continued off and on until Gran Turismo 5 came out on Playstation 3. I was once again hooked! I began racing on a nightly basis. I started running with a really good group of competitive racers in an "exotics" league. This league consisted of Ferrari's, Audi's, Lotus, Porsche, Lamborghini and more. This was the first organized league I had ever been a part of. Ten races later, I had secured my first championship! This got me to thinking....maybe I should start running my own leagues. So I did. 

The first organized league I created was called an FF Series. This league allowed only Front Engine, Front Wheel Drive (FF) cars to compete in it. A lot of the same guys took part in this league as well as several newcomers. The league was so successful that it ran for 3 seasons. The lobbies were full in almost every race.

I also ran a very successful Super GT series. This was based on the Japanese Super GT series in real life. Once again, this league had 3 successful seasons and attracted lots of new drivers.

Fast forward to 2022. The arrival of the Playstation 5 and Gran Turismo 7. It had been a long time since I'd sat behind a sim wheel. In fact, I no longer even owned a wheel or driving rig. Playing sim racing games on a controller just isn't acceptable to me. I purchased a Playseat Challenge driving rig and Logitech G923 racing wheel/pedal set. I had originally planned on playing GT7 only on the weekends. That lasted only 2 weeks. I was once again hooked! I blew through the entire campaign in only a few days. Then I started working on all of the license tests. After that, I moved on to the circuit experiences for every track. I'm happy to say that I have achieved gold and 1st place on every single event available. After that, it was time to rejuvenate my passion for league racing and running my own league. I once again started with setting up an FF Series. From there, I moved on to running a series I called the Regions Cup. This series used several different classes of cars from the game. The catch was, you had to choose a region to represent at the start of the season. You had to choose each car for each race from your selected region. The most recent series I ran was called the Career Series. This is one of the best series, in my opinion, that I've ever run. The premise is that you basically progress through a "virtual" career on your path to greatness. The series started with you in a Go Kart and ended with you driving a Super Formula car. In the middle, there was a variation of classes from street cars all the way up to Gr. 1 cars.

When I wasn't running my own league, I found myself participating in many other leagues. I found myself participating in 4 leagues at a time. This doesn't include Sport races or national events like the Manufacturers Cup or Nations Cup. 

Gran Turismo 7 has become an every night event for me.

I have won several different leagues so far on Gran Turismo 7. Thanks to the success I've had, I have joined a race team, won multiple leagues, and even achieved some sponsorships.

Hoping for more success in this game as well as the new Forza when it releases next year.
