I am attract by automotive since my first years.

After several championship on GTR2 with GT class I tried Classics with GT Legends, Nascar with NR2003 & rFactor. Endurance races arrive and grown with GTR2 and rFactor and in 2008 I joined a radio team to animate a 24 hours race on GTR2.

Here start the first steps of Paddock TV. At this time radio and video were separated. After a short experiences I joined a TV team to support broadcaster and realise commentary during a live endurance race. Just after this, this channel were switch off and in may 2012 Paddock TV was born near from Paris.

I drive in simracing many years ago and during several years. I managed race organisation with Endurance rFactor. In a first time with 6h races and after 10 hours, 12 hours and the pinnacle of endurance races, 24 Hour races ! With Endurance rFactor we introduced plugin for reconnection during race on rFactor. Now retired from race organisation I join Paddock TV in 2015 in a first time as commentator and in 2016 as broadcaster. In the same time I developp a specific version or iRTVO for Paddock TV to compelte the functionnality  and be more realistic.
