How did you find us? I feel bad for this, but I’m not entirely sure I think it was through a Google search, though. I’ve always wanted a game where you could design your own cars from scratch, even during the days of Gran Turismo 1, and ToCA World Touring Cars (Which is retro in my case considering I was about 6 years old at the time ) So, although I may not be sure how I found this, it’s just the fact that I found it.
About: I am currently in high school studying my GCSE’s. I recently went on work experience with Greenlight Television, a company that films and produces various motorsport events around the world such as the British Touring Car Championship, World Enduro Chapionship, and the British Drift Championship (among others). It was probably the best week of my life!
I have been a huge petrolhead for as long as I can remember. One of my earliest memories was sitting in primary school, about 5 years old, and using a pen as a car and making it do donuts around the table, assisted by my attempt at making revving noises. Much to the dismay of the rest of the class, all be it I was 5 years old .
I also knew the HP of a ton of my (toy) cars when I was very young.
I spend my spare time doing all the things listed in the ‘Interests’ section.
I am extremely active on the Automation forums so you may already know me. I like to try and help people on the forums; if anyone happens to have an unsolved problem, I would happily provide help where I can! The feeling of knowing that you have helped solve someone’s problem is enough to compensate for the fear of being wrong (I’m not as knowledgeable as a mod or dev, so don’t take my word over theirs ) I I have also recently became a beta tester for Automation, which is really fun and somewhat of an honor.
I also have a small YouTube channel and Twitch account, where I frequently stream and upload Automation content. I like to play multiplayer a lot, though most of the time, I’m just sitting in an empty lobby. It’s amazing how much footage I record of me just waiting for people to join my game . But I am always free for a game whenever I’m online, just PM me or something.
So, I’m droning on a bit here, but that’s a small ‘Autobiography’, if you will, of me. Feel free to hit me up on one of my threads and say hello, or PM me!
