Froskurinn welcomes 24H Le Mans Virtual champion Joshua K Rogers.
Joshua K Rogers is a champion of Le Mans. The 20-year-old recently won the virtual 24 hours endurance race with his Porsche Esports Team in the GTE class. Our host Froskurinn and Joshua look back at the biggest event esports racing has seen so far.
“Communication is everything”
An endurance race is even more about teamwork than usual races. The Australian explains that setting up a car as a team is crucial because all team members use the same car during the race. In his opinion it is “really important to be as prepared as possible” going into a 24 hour race.
Overall, Joshua tells that he and his team were able to learn a lot from each other before and during the race. Despite there were some issues and interruptions Joshua really liked the event: “Obviously, there were some hiccups. But at the end of the day Motorsport Games and ACO both did a fantastic job.”
“The damage model will be the masterpiece”
The esports racer started his career in iRacing. That is why he is extremely excited about the recent game updates iRacing announced. The Australian especially looks forward to the new damage model. “I think the damage model for the Porsche cup car is really exciting. I’m sure we’ll see a lot of that in the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup.”
