Been a little while since any member of the team did an update so I thought I would jump on a let everyone know what is going on.

Season 4 has thus far has been an exciting time for all at ARUK, Jesper Pedersen gained his pro licence in S3 and is competing in Pro’s. Samuli and myself are fighting to win the IGPS series, plus the team has expanded with some new faces.

I would like to announce the new driver line up for season 4.

Jesper Pedersen
Pierre B Urbizu

Alex Simpson
Samuli Kumo
Justin Lindsay
Lee Thompson
Liam Williams
Jody Mills


leeslide1So Far This Season
With the Team splitting the focus over 2 Series the IPRS & IGPS we have lots going on and to be happy about. Jesper and Pierre both sit inside the top 25 of the IPRS and will look to consolidate those places in the remaining rounds. The best performance to date has been both drivers bringing home a top 10 at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. With only 4 rounds left to qualify for the Drivers World Championship the pressure will sure be on both drivers.

Meanwhile the IGPS Drivers are having a great season, Both Samuli and myself have seen a marked improvement in overall pace from last season and as our knowledge of the FW31 improves as do our results week on week. Sitting 2nd and 4th receptively in the standings and with 6 victories to date things are looking up for us come the 2013 S1 season.

samulislide2The battle amongst the new drivers has not gone un-noticed, Justin, Liam and Lee are so close of pace and with all of them running the Fw31 in a team environment for the first time it’s great to see how fast they are improving in this tricky to master racing car.
Liam has already bagged himself his first win while Justin has got his best point finish in any iRacing official race at Silverstone with 177 points. Lee has 7 top 5 finish’s to add to the teams 57 in all races to date.


What’s in the future

In the pipeline we have, A new car being designed, new site and team forum.
