Two drivers from very different backgrounds who’ve recently achieved major virtual racing upsets are the stars of the latest The Race Esports Podcast – powered by ROKiT Phones.
World Rally and Rallycross legend Petter Solberg joins Claire Cottingham and Jack Nicholls to talk about his genuine joy at winning in The Race Legends Trophy, and designing his own braking system for his sim rig.
Look out for an in-depth feature on Solberg’s esports adventures so far on The Race later this week.
Solberg also recalls some great memories from his rallying career, including tricking a bank manager to fund the purchase of a Toyota Celica rally car.
The other star guest is Formula 1 Esports racer Cem Bolukbasi, fresh from beating Charles Leclerc to victory in last weekend’s round of Veloce’s NotTheGP series.
Bolukbasi describes what it was like racing against, and defeating, a Ferrari F1 star, and about transferring his virtual driving skills into real world GT4 racing.
