Still at the tender age of 20, Joshua finds himself in a good position to grow within sim racing. He hopes the sim racing esports scene will continue to grow and remains hopeful of having more offline sim racing events: “Thankfully I’ve had a little bit of experience in offline events – all through other Porsche events, which is a credit to show what they’re trying to do for us.
“Being 20, I feel like this is the right time to try and ride the wave and see where it goes. There are opportunities you get that you might not get every day so you’ve got to take them with both hands. If it develops further, and if this could become my job, I wouldn’t say no! Obviously, university is still something I enjoy. If I had to, I wouldn’t be upset if that was my career either, but sim racing definitely takes the cake.”
2019 has been a breakthrough year for Joshua Rogers: proudly crossing off his bucket lists of the VRS GT iRacing World Championship, the Porsche SimRacing Trophy held during the ADAC SimRacing Expo at the Nürburgring, and recently being crowned Porsche Esports Supercup champion.
With the championship season over, he will dedicate more time to his studies. And while he may want to step back a bit, that doesn’t mean he will slow down in his approach to sim racing. Expect to see him among the top contenders for the championship of the Porsche Esports Supercup 2020 season.
