It’s not too often we get the chance to drive a car that is brand new in the PC sims. When Studio 397 asked me if I wanted to do just that, I couldn’t turn it down. The car? The brand spanking new GT3 Aston Martin Vantage.
We’ve had some incredible races in the iRacing Endurance Le Mans Series over the last nine months. We’ve experienced wins, tight finishes and coming back from difficulty to good results. However, this race would make everything else look like a walk in the park.
Michael Schumacher. That name will forever be synonymous with Formula One. That name could be the definition of success. He is a man that redefined the record books. A man filled with unrelenting desire and determination. He’s a man that became a hero to me and a legend to the world of motorsport.
Whenever I see an alert telling me Race Sim Studio have released a new car, there’s this excitement that runs through my body. RSS is, in my opinion, the best modding team around.

Sebring International Raceway – one of the most iconic endurance racing venues in the world. It’s a track that is famed for its brutal, bumpy and unforgiving nature. It also played host to the first round of the new iELMS season, much to the dismay of my poor wrist.
The scene: it’s Sunday, it’s my day off. After a tough 6 hour race at Sebring the day before, I’m trying to rest my aching wrist and giddy head. I’m sitting on TeamSpeak with some friends, relaxing and having a laugh. Then I get a message from Atze Kerkhof (Member of Team Redline): “Would you like to race against Max Verstappen and Lando Norris in an F3 car?”
The iRacing Endurance Le Mans Series – or to put it another way, my favourite online racing series in sim racing at present. With its 6 hour races and multiclass format, including my beloved hybrid LMP1 class, it was always going to win me over.
There we have it, yet another Formula One season in the books and yet another demonstration of why Lewis Hamilton is the champion. Whether you like him or not, the man is undoubtedly one of the very best we’ve ever had in Formula One.
