Many of you will already know fellow TORA member jonnotheone and may well have raced with or against him over the years at TORA or at TURN but after a spell away applying his talent to iRacing we are happy to announce his return to console racing and becoming part of the VPR family.
Mrt Racing is a relatively new member to the TORA community having joined the community in February this year but has already competed in several TORA race events and now joining CTech Motorsport / Virtual Pirtek Racing.
We would like to take this opportunity to officially welcome both drivers to the team and wish them all the very best for their future with us, may it be a long and successful partnership!
Unfortunately, we must now also announce the expulsion of Select Veepz from the CTech Motorsport / Virtual Pirtek Racing team. Veepz became part of the team almost a year ago and shared many successes with the team during his time with us. Select Veepz’s termination from the team came into effect on Monday 25th July after it had been brought to the attention of the team staff of his very serious misconduct and rule breaking which occurred outside of his normal team role and duties. Select Veepz was only a week away from receiving a major promotion within the team when his activities came to the attention of the team management.
Veepz had various internal team infringements whilst driving for CTech Motorsport / Virtual Pirtek Racing but the seriousness of his latest actions could not be excused and so the team and staff all felt and jointly agreed that terminating Veepz from the team was the only acceptable action that could be taken in reflection of his rule breaking that could have been extremely detrimental to the running of CTech Motorsport / Virtual Pirtek Racing. We therefore wish Select Veepz the very best of luck with any future team that may decide to take him into their ranks and hope he does not repeat his serious misconduct within any new team. VPR wish Veepz every success for his future endeavours.
In addition to the above announcement and on behalf of our entire team we also take this opportunity to officially announce and congratulate the promotion of CTech Motorsport / Virtual Pirtek Racing team member FAA xXNutterXx to the position of Team Manager.
Nutter joined VPR little under one year ago and since then has grown within the team substantially. Nutter joined the team and immediately fit right in and became a good friend to all team members past and present. He took on the position of official VPR Team Tuner which he continues to do to this day. Nutter has stepped up to every challenge put before him, he has volunteered to take on tasks within our team without needing to be asked thus enabling back of house team staff to spend additional time focusing on other team related business and projects, he has gone above and beyond what has been asked of him to help his team and those within the team whether they be team drivers or our media staff and because of his loyalty and dedication continually demonstrated along with his many race successes for the team over the year that the VPR staff felt this promotion within our team was the next natural step up for Nutter. Again, speaking on behalf of all our team members we would like to sincerely congratulate FAA xXNutterXx on his promotion to CTech Motorsport / Virtual Pirtek Racing Team Manager and wish him all the very best for his future with us as a top tier staff member and as a fellow team driver.
