Yes here is another post or article regarding the current hot topic. It comes as no surprise that the 2020 motorsport season is experiencing massive disruption due to the Covid19 pandemic. Not just racing but all of our regular lives are on pause or disrupted in some way.
I wanted to take a quick moment to let you all know my 2020 plans. Right now, my goal (as is most) is to be back racing in as soon as we are in a safe position to do so. Every series across the world has canceled or postponed races until later in the year.
As a driver and someone who primarily makes their livelihood from motorsport, this is of course a very scary time. All of my racing is primarily funded by partners where we have agreements and work to accomplish strategies set in place. Without racing or coaching, I am left dead in the water in terms of business. It's important for me to remember though and remind my fellow motorsport friends that everyone is being effected right now all over the world. I am still keeping dialog open for potential partnerships and working hard on my fitness so when racing starts back up, we hit the ground running.
In the meantime, I will start increasing my e-sports involvement on iRacing, F1 2019, and Gran Turismo Sport. Stay tuned as I will also launch a Twitch channel so we can all have some fun with the sim racing shenanigans.
The current global environment is sad, frightening, and seems dark. However, we can all still laugh, look forward to better times, and have fun in the virtual world while practicing social distancing. Stay safe, healthy, and respect your fellow neighbors. This isn't a problem that will go away on its own without all of us putting in some type of effort. We got this.
