After getting said broadband connection in 2004, he started racing on public servers on Toca Racedriver 2. A few months later the public demo of “GTR” has been released which took him to ‘proper’ simulations. After the release of the full game, he was racing online on public servers until “GTR2” was released.
In 2007 he switched to the simulation “Live for Speed” and joined his first team. After some success in the ESL league which was discontinued, Martin switched to endurance racing in leagues such as LFSGT and Masters of Endurance. This has been his main simracing activity until September 2010, when he stopped racing on “LFS”.
As Ferrari hosted an online competition with their own simulation, he tried to fight for weekly prizes as well as the overall prize. It turned out very well for him, finishing 3rd in the worldwide ranking won him a trip to the Ferrari headquarters in Maranello and the chance to drive a Formula Abarth at Ferraris testtrack Fiorano.
Since “Ferrari Virtual Academy” had no multiplayer option, he had to find a new simulation and ended up with subscribing to iRacing.
After spending a little more than one season (4 months) with various cars (MX5, Star Mazda, Ford Mustang), he competed for a Pro license in his second full season on the iRacing.com service. In the winter 2011/2012 he competed in the iRacing.com Road Pro series, finishing 2nd.
Since then Martin mainly competed in the iRacing.com World Championship Grand Prix Series.
