How did you find us?
I googled for engineering/ management games, found the YouTube channel and the Steam page, and decided to buy the game

I’m an engineering student from the “Ruhrgebiet”, Germany. I was always intersted in vehicles of any kind (cars, planes, ships, planes, etc…), so i decided to study sales engineering with a major in automation and production. I hope to finish my B. Sc. this year and start with the masters.
When I have some time spare I play the drums and a bunch of other percussive instruments.

    Call some of them mainstream, but it’s what I like :slight_smile:

How did you find us?
I can’t remember exactly. I’ve been following the game for a while now, and only recently purchased it. It could possibly have been through the FailRace YouTube channel, but I think I might have discovered the game before that.

I’ve been into engineering most of my life, and I’m looking to go into it as a full time career. Funnily enough, automotive design (especially using CAD) is probably the area I’d most like to go into. In my spare time, I like to play games, play the guitar, watch anime, and dabble in some creative hobbies such as digital art and content creation for games.

Previous Vehicles of Interest: So many you’d probably need two whole Pentagons to house them! :laughing:

How did you find us: If memory doesn’t fail me, through a forum that had an Automation thread (somewhere during the Kee days), then FailRace… Possibily a combination of both.

About: A car fan since I could speak in Babbling-ish. I own countless car-related objects, from magazines all over the world to scale models, and even pieces of WTCC cars! Avid reader since 1-and-a-half-years-old, I dream of one day releasing a book of my own material. The other dream is visiting the mesmerizing city of Tokyo…


Name: Archjoa (I prefer being called Archy as that’s my go to nickname, but it was taken here)

Occupation: Unemployed, I’m studying in university, following a career in music. (Composition, some engineering, some history as well too.)

Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Interests: Cars, music, talking with people, learning about mechanical things, different countries/cultures.

Vehicles Currently Owned: Nothing, sadly!

Dream Garage Vehicles: Oof, what a question. I have way too many, however if I have to pick one… Porsche 911 Turbo, a 930 or 964.

How did you find us: I heard about this game a year ago or so, but then I kinda forgot about it. Some days ago I was watching RCR and I decided to check it on Steam to get it, so here I am now!

About: Well, I’m a 19 years old dude from Argentina, been a car fanatic since I have memory. Guess it all started when I was 4 and saw a red 911 on a parking lot, haha. I’m far from someone with massive knowledge really and I’m always looking to learn some more, that’s why I tend to ask stupid questions sometimes really, I just have a curious nature. Life dreams? well… I just want to make money doing something I enjoy and leave my country for a better one, I’m kinda simple. I like other games, by example I really like Pokemon, but I don’t really game a lot to be totally honest, even if, I won’t lie… I’m getting a bit addicted to Automation!

About: I guess I liked cars since i was born, and when i was younger i would repaint matchbox or hot wheels cars, but now i prefer to race RC buggys and build cars in automation or beamng. i would like to have an interesting car one day and to rally.


I’ve been active here for a while, so might as well introduce myself.

Name: Adi

Occupation: Unemployed/College student someone please employ me I really need money

Location: If you hang around in Automation Discord, you’ll know where I live.

Interests: Games, Memes, Fun stuff that distracts me from being sad.

Vehicles Currently Owned: 2012 Suzuki Raider R150, 2005 Suzuki Wagon R, 2008 Toyota Corolla 2.0 V.

Dream Garage Vehicles: Ducati Panigale, A custom-built café racer motorcycle, A custom-built track car using a bike engine, Toyota Hiace camper van, a Harley or a Honda Goldwing, and maybe a nice, comfortable and low-maintenance minivan for daily commute.

Previous Vehicles of Interest: '98 Dodge Viper GTS (dropped it since the government doesn’t allow import of used cars)

How did you find us? /o/, back in 2011 (hence my very old account age), lost interest around 2012 because most content is blocked by a paywall, bought the game on Steam mid-2016 and returned to the forum late 2017 once I discovered Automation’s Discord server.

Overall I’m an uninteresting 23 year old guy in person. Shy, has really weird interests, doesn’t understand mainstream topics such as football (both variants) or DotA. But talk about cars and bikes with me and suddenly we are the bestest friends in the world.

I love cars, yet I don’t have an engineering background. That merit is reserved for my grandparents, my uncles, my parents and my siblings. I’m the only one in the family that’s breaking the tradition by taking Fine Arts. Life is pretty good being a Fine Arts student. but it gets pretty depressing once you realize that you are far less productive than your classmates

Usually I hang out in Discord a lot more than I do in the forums.
