Oggi vi segnaliamo la storia di Aaron Jeansonne, che ci racconta lui stesso rispondendo ad alcune domande: il nostro Aaron è l'ennesimo pilota virtuale che dal simulatore di guida, in questo caso Project CARS e Project CARS 2, è riuscito a raggiungere il sogno del motorsport reale, approdando in Formula Ford UK!
As a teenager living in a mobile home in Sulphur, Louisiana, Aaron had a dream since he was chin-high to a wheel arch: to become a racing driver. Only problem? He had no money, and Louisiana isn’t exactly the centre of the racing universe. Instead, young Aaron threw all his talents and resolve into video games which, after some years, led him to Project CARS where he discovered a passion for open-wheel racing and the challenging, narrow and picturesque circuits of the UK.
Using Project CARS and Project CARS 2 as his only training tool, Aaron and his family skimped and saved and turned the unlikeliest of dreams into reality—Aaron is now competing in the UK in Formula Ford against tomorrow’s F1 and IndyCar stars and carving out a career that could well see him go all the way on the Ultimate Driver Journey, from sim racing in his mobile home to global stardom. His story validates the status of sim racing as a cheap way to chase the dream of becoming a racing driver.
