Biography

Simon began Sim Racing at a very early age, and it started with the Grand Prix games from Geoff Crammond's Microprose, firstly on the Amiga as a very small child and with his father, but then graduating all the way through to GP4 on the PC. Simon also raced a lot of Gran Turismo and the EA Formula 1 games before taking a step away from racing games for a while. It wasn't until 2010 that Simon put himself against others in a multiplayer way, contesting the GT Academy 2010 competition as the 2nd qualifier from Australia, however only one person would make it to Race Camp and that would go to Daniel Holland.

Simon later attempted GT Academy in 2015 and the competition had moved along further in this time. He would be the 6th qualifier and gain automatic entry to the national finals where, despite a poor run on the simulator, would impress the judges enough with his fitness, PR and on track skills to get a trip to Race Camp at Silverstone. Simon would make it through the initial double elimination, however would fall foul to the Gymkhana challenge to eventual champion, Matt Simmons.

After GT Academy, Simon would start competing on iRacing with the Evolution Racing Team squad, quickly becoming part of the management structure, and driving the marketing and sponsorship effort within the team, including the hallmark signing of Logitech G to the team. Feigl quickly establish a keenness for GT racing, and would ultimately make it through the qualifying series in late 2016 to contest his first World Championship Series, the 2017 Blancpain GT. On debut, Simon and teammate Andrew Kahl would take a famous podium result, alongside sister ERT car in a memorable 2-3 finish. This would set the foundation for a great year, where the team would finish 7th overall and the highest placed Australians at that point in time.

In May of 2018, Simon decided the time was right to move on from ERT and start his own Sim Racing Esports team, Altus Esports. Altus Esports was officially founded on June 30th, 2018, and in that time many of his teammates were keen on joining the new project and thus formed the basis of a strong lineup from the start. The intended structure for Altus Esports is quite different than that of what ERT was, opting for fewer drivers but greater levels of commitment and reward for those within the team. The team itself will be a mix of Australian and European talent, and already possesses some very strong performers already, including retaining their entry in the 2019 GT World Championship.
