The coaches

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA

Few drivers in motorsport history can match the credentials of 38-year-old Montoya. He is the only driver to win a CART Series title, the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Daytona, all in his first attempt. He is also a former winner of one of the most prestigious races in the world: the Monaco Grand Prix. During his F1 career, Montoya has amassed seven victories and 30 podium finishes in 94 starts, and remains the only foreign-born driver to win multiple races in NASCAR’s premiere series.

RUDY VAN BUREN

Rudy van Buren, a 26-year-old sales manager from the Netherlands, beat more than 30,000 contestants to be crowned the World’s Fastest Gamer in Season 1, becoming one of the McLaren F1 team’s official simulator drivers for the 2018 season. Van Buren began racing karts aged eight, ultimately winning the Dutch Karting Championship in 2003 only to quit at the age of 16 due to a lack of financial backing. Van Buren is now considered one of the greatest simulator racers of his generation.

 

JANN MARDENBOROUGH

Jann Mardenborough is one of the most successful gamer-to-racer’s of all time after winning GT Academy in 2011. Mardenborough was so fast in British GT in his debut season that GT Academy graduates were barred as competing as amateur-rated drivers. He went on to successful compete in LMP2 sports cars (where he showed massive speed at Le Mans), F3 and GP3 where he won at Hockenheim.
He began racing in Japan for Nissan in 2016 in GT300 and graduated to the GT500 class in 2017.
