How do I become an Esports driver?

an interview with
Jed Norgrove part of the team
Do you think people realise how much effort goes into this not just from yourself, but from engineers and people like that around the Esports team?
"We work a lot on the fitness side of it and the amount of engineers we have here working with us on data, stuff like that, it really shows how big Esports is and is continuing to grow. I think from the outside, you see people who don't really know the series at all, they just see racing on the game, but I think if you brought them into here and show them how much preparation we put into it, how many hours, how much dedication, hard work, the fitness work with personal trainers, I think they'd realise how much we prepare."
