I began sim driving with a joystick(?) and progressed through using a Flight Sim Yoke (as a substitute), until buying my first proper wheel, which I can't remember the make of except that it had analog paddles which I used for throttle/brake and buttons for gear changing. I then progressed through MS Sidewinder Black, Logitech G25, Fanatec GT3RS to my current latest, a Thrustmaster T300 with Fanatec Clubsport pedals.
I went through various racing sims/genres including Rallying sims until I discovered an Italian simracing site with a group of international members and some good series. Anyone remember Sam Krueger from R2P? He was racing there along with one or two others who became well known on the scene.
After they reduced the number of races they were hosting, I discovered Race2Play and spent many enjoyable years there until they closed at the end of 2016. I ended up here at SRO after discovering that Nigel had set this organisation up, before R2P closed.
