Steve Proudley moved from console racing to pc, he started Simsport Racing as a Facebook community on 1st November 2016. The intention was to gain and share knowledge regarding sim racing software and hardware, also to enjoy some racing with like minded people. Steve is now also commentating on the live streams of the league races.
Christopher Pinchbeck was a member and admin from day one, he encouraged Steve to start the group. Chris came up with the name Simsport Racing, he has always been a key member of the group, who is always willing to interact with members new and old. Chris and Steve both share the same passion for racing but with limited technical knowledge needed assistance from other members.
Stephen Haley joined SSR in the early days after racing with Steve and Chris in other groups servers, after some discussions SSR started to rent servers and host its own races and championships from 2017. Steve is still working very hard keeping all the servers running smoothly so everyone else can enjoy the racing. Steve has an amazing eye for detail, in the Assetto Corsa days he was responsible for designing a lot of car skins and also updating all the servers with the correct skin files. Steve is willing to help anyone who wants to be helped (although he can be grumpy), he has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with anyone willing to listen.
Gavin Uttley joined the team again after racing in another group and it wasn't long before he was offering help and advice with technical issues. It became very clear from early on that Gav knew his stuff, so he was invited on board the admin team. Gav is the man behind the scenes ensuring everything technical works as we want it to work, not always how it was designed to work. I wish I could tell you a lot more about the things Gav does, but honestly I don't understand a lot of what he does do, its all too technical for me (everyone should have a Gav)
Aaron Walker joined SSR to race like everyone else, he quickly became one of the regulars at most fun races and championship rounds. After a few months and several discussions Aaron was invited to join the admin team. Aaron has an attention to detail which is proving invaluable when organising races, championships and a large community such as SSR. He is an essential part of the team helping Steve with servers and supporting all other admin with daily tasks when required. Aarons role is now Server management with Steve Haley
DIGITAL MEDIA MANAGER
Chris Crossman joined SSR in 2019, he wasn't shy in offering to help with things like design and results. He transformed the way results are presented after each race and the praise came flooding in. It was only right that he was invited to become part of the admin team, he now has the role of design and digital art manager, responsible for the posters and video production
Archie W Clifford has been a very active member for a number of years, and a driver we believe deserves the title of alien. Archie is always willing to help others and wanted to become involved with video production. Archie now assists Chris Crossman with video production
Dave Hedges joined SSR and proved his worth on the track, while being a very active member off track also. He was always ready to question ideas and suggest alternatives, he is very rarely shy in expressing his opinions. Dave has been given a Mod role and assists Chris Crossman with the video production (I'm sure his role will expand)
Steve is the latest member of the Simsport admin team. Steve has been a sim racer for many years and has recently stepped into the role of website design and management along with Gavin Uttley. Steve is working on a new website for the team as well as being an active driver in many of our events.
