April 27th, 2012 by

Paulo Valente is not perfect.  In 48 starts at the wheel of his virtual Mustang FR500S in 2012 Season 1 he only earned 47 top five finishes . . .   That glaring exception aside, the resident of Aveiro, Portugal was plenty good enough to take a pair of titles last season, namely the Mustang Class … Read the Rest »

iRacer Profile: Eduardo Prado

June 4th, 2011 by

Given that he hails from Campinas, Brazil, you’d think the catalyst for Eduardo Prado’s entry into the world of sim racing might have been Ayrton Senna, Nelson Piquet or Emerson Fittipaldi; Tony Kanaan, Cristiano da Matta or Rubens Barrichello; Raul Boesel, Helio Castroneves or Bruno Junqueira  . . . or any number of his countrymen … Read the Rest »
