Favourite software

iRacing - They have the best model of the Nordschliefe

Dirt Rally - It's so much fun with my handbrake, and with my family background in Rallying how can I not enjoy it!

I used the FPZERO Pro simulator throughout my championship winning campaign in Porsche Carrera Cup at the track. Seeing the advantage it gave me with my race preparation made it a no brainer after winning the championship; using it to prepare for important races in my career ever since. The quality and accuracy is phenomenal and a big step above consumer grade equipment! The support from FPZERO makes the difference as it means my simulator is always up and running and they're there when I need them!
