Profile

Since he was young, sora3 had been interested in cars and as well as inevitably, motorsports himself. Immersing himself into it, the first race he was taken to was the very wet 1992 Bathurst where he witness the ‘pack of arseholes’ spray Gentleman Richards gave to the crowd. Following Le Mans and Formula One, he wasn’t young enough to understand the death of Aryton Senna on that faithful day watching.

After various ‘distractions’ such as online shooters and strategy games, it took Grand Turismo 4 to finally get into the virtual motorsport he was so denied. After playing with a controller, he decided to purchase a Logitech Driving Force EX wheel to get his racing fix. In doing so, he opened a new path for him. It was the Atomic Live event in Sydney where he experienced F1 racing using rFactor and as well as the F1 mod for Melbourne that he realised what he had missed. From that, it took more practice and as well as mechanical understanding that finally propelled sora3 into the world of F1 racing. F1 2010 was the first season and game he participated as he started out with the promising Virgn Racing outfit.

Although a slow starter, he quickly became more technically orientated and finally broke through for his first podium in Singapore. More events followed and another podium at the same event beckoned but the lack of concentration robbed him of this. But this made other teams sit up and take notice of this young driver.

F1 2011 was the start into showcasing his technical input where he was paired with Eradicator84 for Williams F1. A promising start with 4th showed how far he had come since the early days. However, he made it a priority to help mark get up to speed and in consequence he had to throw away points in order to help his team mate. This was culminated in various points and podium finishes.

However, the family is what made sora3 retire from full time racing in order to balance this aspect of his life. After doing so, he announced his intention to race in GP2 and to get more speed. Partnering with Renault in preparation for F1 2012, he races with fellow GP2 team mate CruiserComet and guiding him with his technical input. It won’t be long before this racer finally gets his first win.
