Driver Information

Real Life

Kyran was born in the pre-Brexit haven of Cornwall and also currently lives there. Known to be the 'life of the party', he has even put himself into undesirable physical and mental states for the sake of banter and the enjoyment of his friends. He possesses the worst body clock known to man and his incredible level of social awkwardness will be defined in the pages of history for generations. He also enjoys sim-racing, mainly going faster than everyone else. Kyran is referred to as an 'alien in denial', among other things, as he doesn't believe he's that fast.

Virtual Racing Career

Kyran's first foray into the world of sim-racing was at the final round of a Blancpain GT3 series (2013) run by Sim Race Online, better known as SROL. He joined the league for the final round after immense pestering from a friend. Kyran debuted excellently, running out of fuel on the last lap in the feature race. From a reverse grid front row, he led the sprint race from the start until he was taken out by Nick after another driver jokingly alluded that Nick was a 'ruthless killer.' The pair shared a car at the Virtual Endurance Championship for two seasons with several extremely successful drives, including a stunning effort to take third at the 8 Hours of Interlagos.

Kyran currently participates in the Virtual Endurance Championship for Doug Henson Racing. He drove in the LMP1 category for three seasons, taking multiple podiums and a victory at the opening round of Season 9. For Season 10 he has elected to step down from a main driver role, he will however remain within the team as a backup for the LMP2 squad. He also participated in Season 1 of the VEC's feeder league, the Virtual Le Mans Series. He shared an Oreca 05 with Realish Racing veterans April Carlsvard and Allie Ferrie. The trio drove in the LMP2 category, scoring one podium and two fourth places over the course of the championship.

After acquiring an old Swift at the last moment, Kyran debuted at the Cruddy Five for the Realish Racing New Driver Programme, securing a podium finish on the final lap. An overall victory at Bon Anniversaire! Cinq for Eiffel followed, which led to Kyran signing a contract to race full-time with Eiffel Power Motorsports for Season 20 alongside Craighypheno. A spot at Priority 1 Motorsport opened up at the last minute for the 2016 GT Endurance Auto Racing Series. To prevent any animosity, Kyran masqueraded as a Swede to drive in the 2016 GEARS Race of the Aztecs, taking third place after an action packed and strategic race. Kyran raced once again for Priority 1 at the 2016 GEARS Carnival of Speed, although this time with a much prettier Bentley. A second place secured fourth in the Teams Championship, stealing it away from Eiffel Power.

For 2017, Kyran brings in his own team. Collaborating with Lem to unveil Unified Petroleum Autosports. The third edition of the RRTCC netted Kyran seven podium finishes, although he remained winless taking two second places as a season's best. GEARS 2017 went much better than ever could have been expected, UPA claiming the teams' title with a round to spare. Kyran sits atop the standings with three wins out of the four races he took part in, and is in the best possible position to secure his maiden Realish Racing championship. In terms of special events this year, it's been a mixed bag. Second and first in De Nederlandse Regen Meester Trofee and Coppa di Corsa Formula Italiana respectively contrast with a DNF and a disconnect at Cruddy Six and Bon Anniversaire! Six. Kyran also got disqualified from Berlingo Bingo, but then so did everyone else...

Trivia

• Is a massive fan of the Formula Extreme and now the Formula Ultimate.

• There's a joke about him finishing third more often than not in most things he does. Embracing this fact, Kyran will change his Realish Racing number to '3' for the 2017 season.

• Stands 5ft 7in (170cm) short.

• Famously pulled an 'Austin Powers' on stream while pitting from the lead during the VEC 24 Hours of Spa.

• In his first race at Sim Race Online, Kyran ran out of fuel in the feature race. He ran out of fuel whilst leading the Dusk Hair 160 Curls on the third anniversary of this cock-up. These fuel-related retirements inspired the formation his current team, Unified Petroleum Autosports.

• Known as somewhat of a homewrecker throughout many Realish Racing teams.

• Across all official online races Kyran has competed in, he holds a podium rate of 33% or one 'third'. (As of 09/03/2017)

• Is allergic to 1.2L Vauxhall Corsas, as discovered during the weekend of WEC Silverstone 2017.
