"Having a idol in your life is always a motivation to achieve your goal" Patrick Sodeikat

Patrick Sodeikat (Age: 25, Germany) started his professional sim racer career in early 2020. He has been very interested in real motorsports since his childhood. His first racing game was the Need For Speed Underground when he was 7 years old, and he played many racing games with the controller. He was always challenging the record and being competitive when playing all kinds of racing games.  In mid-2019, he discovered Jardier’s channel. Jardier is a famous sim racing streamer in Assetto Corsa Competizione, and he quickly became an idol to Patrick. He loves to watch it and dreams of getting into real motorsport. But Money is a big problem, so he thinks sim racing would be perfect for him. After meeting Jardier, he got a Logitech G29 in early 2020 and started the ACC races. At the end of 2020, he upgraded his gear to Thrustmaster T300rs. This shows how the interest level gains in a short period.
