Favourite software

Assetto Corsa - The selection of tracks is essential for my training, especially competing in F3 across Europe and the Porsche Carrera Cup

On unsighted tracks the sim is a perfect tool to get me up to speed. In my 2019 season I have so many new challenges with the W Series that my FPZERO simulator is the perfect tool to help me get over the hurdle and give me a competitive edge.
