Valtteri Bottas in LFS
Just browsing some LFS videos on youtube when i found this video about a current Formula One driver playing LFS back in the past.

It's Valtteri Bottas(lfsw: vale)

From a random teenager having fun playing LFS to driving for the best team in motorsport history. What a man!

Quote from Vale :Thanks all for congratulating me!

I played LFS for fun many years but unfortunately last 2 of my racing seasons has been so busy that I have not have time really to play.. but I'm sure I will play sometimes still in the future as LFS is a really fun game and you get really tight nice races online Smile

Have a nice races and maybe we see online some day!

Valtteri Bottas

Well if he even remember this game ...

I would like to see him online again, althought maybe for one race only or even just revisiting this forum.

Anyway good luck to him for his Formula One campaign.
That's cool!
Oh shit, I remember that username, I’ve raced against him a few times.
Ah yeah, I remember I've annihilated him in a few races.

Yes,there's one LFS racer who's racing actual cars - the guy in green/white/grey car #60

NickC won the Daytona 24hrs in his class a couple months ago Smile

Louis Delatraz is a frequent participant in one of the iRacing series I've been focusing on the last 2 seasons.
Wow that replay brought back some memories, those were the days! I did quite some great leagues in that time but nothing could match the open wheel racing league and the original lfs league. Many thanks to Wouter''Krutch'' de Bruin and Mr. and Ms. Fiendi. Many happy memories!

If you read this i was racing under the name ''FiredUp''.

I'm not sure I ever raced Bottas, but I surely raced Nicky and used to see FiredUp a lot in Gentlefoot and other events like NDR TBO Challenge and such.

Fun times, even though I only saw those drivers when they were lapping me. Tilt

Geez! I remember vale disappearing into the distance ahead of me a few times. Smile

Not a huge CTRA racer but put in a few hundred laps, definitely favoured the open wheelers over the tin-tops and doesn't appear to have been a fan of Bump and Jump.
