I have been a life long motorsports fan. My father took me to the Indianapolis 500 in 1991, and my life was forever changed. I began Karting in the late 1990s and continued on through 2014. I was the Polesitter for the Indy Karting Classic in 2011 beating the likes of Joseph Newgarden, AJ Almendinger, Alex Tagliani
and many other real-world drivers in that event.
As for Sim racing, it all began on a snowy weekend in 1995. Papyrus Nascar 95 was released and my stepfather just happened to work for IBM, so we had the good stuff that would run that program back then!! Next came another Papyrus release, IndyCar Racing 2!! HOOKED! Then of course came Grand Prix Legends… Mind blown at that point!! Fast forward to 2008 and iRacing here I come! Been active there ever since, Winning multiple championships in Grand Am. Since the release of the Nissan GTP
I have been exclusively competing in the Kamel GT series.

Occupation: Instruments Maintenance Officer
Been doing simracing online since 2007. Before running on iRacing regularly, I was champion on a national rFactor league LMP1 championship, driving a Peugeot 908 HDI FAP, and a special event of 2 hours with a 1970 Ferrari 312P. Biggest accolades in iRacing are winning 3rd split of 120 Minutes of Thunder by ISR TV back in 2012, driving a Riley DP, and getting a DSD button box as a price; and last season winning the Kamel GT World Series championship, driving a Nissan GTP (perhaps prototypes are my kind of car?). Not much spare time nowadays being married with two kids, but I love sim racing too much to stop it altogether, even when life throws curveballs that can force me some months away. Besides that, I’m a nut of cooking big meals in a plough disk on the fire! A bit of a sidestep from the typical Argentine who just loves to roast every kind of meat you can think of.
My brother races IRL on a regional Rally Raid style championship called CANAV, with emphasis on navigation. Was a champion in quads at seasons 2016 and 2017. For budget reasons, he switched to a navigation role for another driver from 2018, racing on a SxS. For 2019 they are switching again to the car class, on a pickup truck!

I love spending my time in the gym (running 10km) and I love karting on outside tracks, I always dreamt about being a racing driver as a little boy, and since I discovered iRacing, I think I realised my dream. I’ve followed F1 since 1988 and it’s my only hobby.
