CTech Motorsport/Virtual Pirtek Racing take this opportunity to officially announce and welcome the team newest driver addition Jamie Cutting aka JamJar Hastings. Jamie has already taken part in team private testing this week, ahead of the season finale of the TORA British GT eSports Championship later this month, and has demonstrated great pace. The team plan to have Jamie take part in the final round of the British GT series on 17th September for the experience as this will be Jamie’s first time within a team and as he is also new to TORA will allow him to see how things are done there compared to other virtual race organisations.
VPR’s GMan555 also being congratulated this week as he ends his trial period with the team and becomes a full-time team driver with CTech Motorsport/Virtual Pirtek Racing. GMan555 aka Graeme has worked hard and dedicated himself to team practice, testing and race events for the team and it was a natural action to end his trial period a little early promoting him into his full-time driver role.
Last but not least. The team staff would like to announce and congratulate VPR’s Brock who was promoted to the role of Team Manager this week. Brock has been with the team now almost a year and has shown great dedication to the team, his team mates and the internal process of how the team works. The position of Team Manager had been vacant for quite a while and it was becoming increasingly obvious to team staff that the role needed to be occupied.
Team Principal AnonCaliga said: “We held the Managers role open for many, many months hoping that our past Manager would return to team duties after he had taken time away from the virtual racing world for personal reasons but it was becoming too much to leave the position vacant and not knowing if the team manager was returning or not, that along with the increased workload looking after team social media, team website and internal team duties was becoming too much a burden for the current staff members to successfully look after properly on a daily basis and therefore we simply had to place someone with the proper outlook of the position and an understanding of the team already into the manger position and after looking at three team members we felt that on this occasion Brock was most deserving to be given a chance at the role and so far we haven’t looked back.
We also added an additional team driver this week and although it’s still pretty early, I have to say he has shown some good pace during team testing recently and the bonus is he gets on well with all the guys already in the team and can have a joke and a laugh yet get serious when it comes to the racing. I can only congratulate both Brock and G Man on both their well-deserved team promotions and JamJar on becoming part of our sim race team family, I wish all of them the very best in their roles within our team.
