Welcome to the team Zoran Jonjic !

The 30 year old Croatian from Makarska has indeed joined our ranks. After spending some time in the Apex Academy and showing good progress, we're happy to get him on the Orion roster. Being good friend with Marin, we got to know him in the last few months and it was only natural to get him onboard; for his speed and dedication, but also a great character!




A little bit of background:
Zoran has been in love with racing games and simulations since the early 2000's, with games like Sports Cars GT (on keyboard..), then Grand Prix 4 by Microprose. Then around 2006 he got his first wheel, with FFB (logitech formula force EX), and started playing rFactor and Live For Speed. Taking a little break in 2010 for professional reasons, he came back in 2013, got a G25, and started racing again, only with more purpose. After a quick stint in Gran Turismo, it was back to rFactor on Race2Play, with a record of 0 DNFs in 148 events. 5 Championship wins later, as the platform was fading away, he went from Assetto Corsa to RaceRoom and finally iRacing.

I was amazed how things are sorted in here. In month or two i got my A licence and started to race GT3 class but I always was fan of F1. Thats why I started to drive FW33 and now Mclaren MP4-30. When the MP4-30 came out I started to develop myself as a F1 driver in igps, joined apex academy and was improving season by season. Now im fighting for podiums there.


Indeed. We're so looking forward to see Zoran fight for his spot on the iRacing WCS and to have him compete there with us for the 2017 season. Hope you like his color as well!

He will be competing in the Pro Series starting today alongside João Vaz. No doubt the pair will shine!
The races will be broadcast by Apex Racing TV, should be fun to watch!
