Asturias Esports racer Diego Ruiloba joins FA Racing Logitech G for the 2019 campaign and will be competing in Dirt Rally and Gran Turismo Sport.
The Spaniard joins the fold off the back of victory in the 2018 FA Racing Liberbank Challenge, the competition organised to find the country’s fastest sim-racer. Diego beat more than 1,000 competitors to the mark and the chance to represent Fernando Alonso’s Esports squad.
“It’s a dream come true and something that I never could have imagined,” said Ruiloba. “I’ll be trying to improve myself and reach my maximum. I’m training a lot at the moment, on Dirt Rally and my ambition is to take the world championship title.”
