Sebastian Job – Pro/WC Driver
Sebastian Job Bio:
Hi, I’m Sebastian. I live in the south of England in a town called East Grinstead. I’ve been a huge racing fanatic ever since I was able to watch it and understand what was going on, as a result of my Dad being a big F1 fan.
I wasn’t ever serious about racing until I went to an indoor karting track with one of my friends. Someone that worked there suggested that I should join an academy that they run there. I went for it and really enjoyed it. After a season the result of this academy was a lap time drop of around 3-4 seconds.
I discovered iRacing just before my 13th birthday, and waited for a month before being eligible to sign up. At first I was hopeless, but still enjoyed it a huge amount. I was doing a bunch of races every day. Eventually after a long time I began to improve with my driving, and eventually decided that I wanted to try and get a World Championship license. I was asked to join Apex Racing UK around March/April of 2014. I’ve now been with them for almost 2 years, and have seen a huge improvement in my driving, as well as setup knowledge.
In a few years I am hoping to compete in GT Academy, a competition that could potentially allow me to have a career as a professional racing driver. In the meantime, I am hoping to get my first win in the iRacing World Championship this season, and get a strong result with the team in the Blancpain GT Series. Doing these high level competitions will also train my driving for GT Academy, and any other opportunities that may arise.
I also used to play Rugby for a few years, but eventually stopped to pursue my passion for motor racing. Whenever the Rugby is on TV I will still watch it, as I think it’s a brilliant spectator sport. I also enjoy to do lots of gaming on the PC, mainly playing CS:GO. Along with this, I also watch a large amount of eSports, and would love to see simracing become a part of that in the future.
