Title: Bert and Miro join SR!
Post by: Turkey on March 15, 2012, 04:24:26 PM UTC
Bert Knops and MiroTuutijarvi have joined SR. Both drivers were previously part of TDRT but have decided to join us after a 2 year chase by Turkey! Bert is 26 years old from Holland. Miro is 23 years old and from Finland.

Welcome to the team guys!

Bert's comments - A bit about my simracing career, I'm an oldtimer really... I was playing Grand Prix from Accolade and Papyrus' Indianapolis 500 before I could read. A few years and racing games later, when an internet connection and sometime later Grand Prix Legends arrived I got really hooked and started racing online and doing competitions. After doing a lot of GPL and later some Nascar 2003 over a total period of over 5 years, I just got a bit bored with simracing so when my wheel broke I didn't get a new one and as a result I was on a sabbatical. About 6 or 7 years later I found out simracing had moved on and I noticed myself missing the fun and the competitions so I decided to get a wheel again and ended up buying LFS S2, having shaken some rust off with the demo :)

Funny thing though, when I got S2 (around May or June 2010), I probably would've joined SR already if Rudi from TDRT hadn't already picked me up the day before or so when I was searching for a team through the LFS Forums :) So almost 2 years later, here I am after all!

Miro's comments - I am really pleased to join in the team. I hope that I can get some good pointers about RWD GTR cars and I would also like to improve myself on non-slicks cars and open wheelers. And of course it is always nice to get to know more people who have the same interests in simracing, keeping the racing clean and hard.

And for the future:

Me and Bert have some common interest in the rFactor 2, which is still in the open beta phase. We would like to get SR involved in that and we know that we'll get the support we need (hopefully :P). And ofc, we won't abandon LFS neither.
