Peter Jones (born 20 December 2003), nicknamed 'Casual Megapace', is a British simracer who started his career in early 2018. He began in the WCSLeague Renault Megane Trophy on rFactor 2, and has since become a familiar face on rFactor and Automobilista. In April 2020, he began his own simracing team called 20:12 Motorsport, which had its first race at Spa Francorchamps in the 2020 TCC Championship with Callum Gunn at the wheel of the Cupra. He races with a Fanatec CSW V2 Wheelbase and P1 XBox rim, with T3PA pedals and an SHH Shifter. He is supported by UK medical charity, Action for M.E

Sim Racing Career

Peter began racing on rFactor 2 in the WCSLeague Renault Megane Trophy, finishing 16th in his debut race. From that race, it was onwards and upwards, and he finished the season in P9 overall. It was about the same time he began Endurance racing in CFEG, and began working up the ranks. He was hired as a reserve driver at Spa Francorchamps for one of the top teams and finished 5th in class. The next season, he was signed to the Rookie Monsters LMP2 car and ended up winning round 8 outright. Going back to WCSLeague, Peter then competed in the GP series for what would be his best season on rFactor 2 to date. He took 2 wins during the season and finished second in the standings after drop-scores.

2019 brought Peter's first race on rFactor in the now defunct Virtual Open Wheel Series (VOWS). 3 disappointing and unlucky seasons followed, placing 10th, 6th, and 5th respectively, with only 1 win coming in his final season, despite flashes of pace throughout. On a more positive note, 2019 also brought Peter's first championship, when he won the SimRacing-GP Radical SR3 Sprint Series in May.

Peter's championship winning F4 car at Knockhill

Later on the in the year, he won also won the World Series Racing (WSR) F4 Cup, rounding off a fairly successful year for Peter.

Another year and, seemingly as per tradition, another new sim, this time Automobilista. He signed for reigning team's champion, Repsol Swinegel Racing and he raced for the first time in AMS in the IVRC TCC Championship. He qualified pole in only his second race.
