Lewes, Delaware, USA, 25th May 2021 - Equipment - Splitting Opinions
We left off with me getting my G29 for my birthday and as you can see in the pictures it's been modified from its stock form.

Lewes, Delaware, USA, 28th April 2021 - How it all started
I'm Alanah and this is my first time ever writing a blog.
I've been looking for a way to share my experiences and the things I've learned throughout my first year of simracing for a while and this blog is going to be just that.

Lewes, Delaware, USA, 21st January 2021 - “If we create role models, bring people in, and educate girls that it’s okay to fail then little by little we can change the mentality.” We’ve been finding our voice on the widely trending audio platform Clubhouse in recent weeks, as we spread the word about Init and our efforts to broaden diversity in esports and sim racing.

RACE ME was created to champion important values that here at Init Esports we embrace everyday. When we connected with the Superstar athletes, the partners and our close network to share the idea, it was a YES from all side.
We are grateful for the work that everyone is putting in to make Race Me a success but to truly support those values it seemed fit to associate the event with a charity that works toward the same goals.

Some say it is the reason for elements (good and bad) of their driving style
