The winner of the inaugural F1 Esports series Brendon Leigh made his long anticipated debut in Formula Ford this past weekend.
At the Snetterton Circuit in England, Leigh qualified 5th in his first ever race, and despite finishing fourth, he hit a fellow driver along the way, gifting him a penalty, falling to 10th.
Sadly, in the second race Leigh would find the wall, retiring him from that race as well as the third later in the day.
Despite this, his team boss had nothing but praise for him, saying he was as fast as the other drivers straight away.
Overall, it wasn't all doom and gloom for the rookie, although I do find it slightly amusing that his aggressive driving style (in both how he drives and how he races with others) has translated from the computer to real life.
