Glenn McGee is one of the sim racing world’s brightest examples of what a talented virtual driver can do with the right real-world opportunities. After kicking off his real-world career in Global Mazda MX-5 Cup cars—a result of winning a globally contested championship on iRacing’s platformMcGee landed a Lamborghini Super Trofeo ride for the first time in 2023 and parlayed it into a Super Trofeo world championship victory at Vallelunga earlier this year.

Gone are the days when karting was the only entry path to motorsport. Max Verstappen feels simulator racing is the way forward for aspiring drivers, as the traditional karting route costs a ridiculous amount of money. Thus, the Dutchman wants to create a simple channel for young talented drivers to earn their way in motorsport.

Verstappen is looking to set up a GT3 team and that will provide the chance for young drivers from the eSports world to showcase their talents. The Dutchman believes that they are exceptionally undermined. Besides that, if the three-time F1 champion can be successful with sim racers in his GT3 team, that would be quite the statement.”
