Biography

Diego started simracing competitively on Project CARS on PlayStation 4, playing with a controller. Later on, he kept improving and upgraded to a Logitech G29 kit, so he could keep evolving as a simracer. Most of the achievments in this period are several wins in Spanish championships, organized by DriversParadeClub and MundoGT.

After some time, Diego decided to jump into the PC world, by the influence of some youtubers that uploaded content about iRacing, Diego wanted to focus on this platform, which he thinks will provide the most competitive and realistic simracing. Shortly after buying his first membership, he joined Eninter e-Racing, a team formed by some friends he raced against, back in Project CARS. The stay in the team lasted around 5 months, the exit of the organization was caused by the offer of another national team, Dream Factory, which Diego thought was a good team to be part of, so he could keep improving in the simulator.

The choice was definetly right, with the help of his new and experienced teammates,in a couple of months the improvment was clearly visible. This permitted Diego to fight for the top spots he thought he couldn't reach in the beggining. Also, thanks to the support of his new team, Diego could improve his hardware to not get outdated in this aspect.

Nowadays, Diego competes with Dream Factory in the most competitive national Championships, organized by MundoGT and GTSeries, and also in the GT PRO/WC organized by iRacing, which provides the most competitive racing against the best international teams and drivers around the globe.
