Bittersweet news today from Blown Gasket Racing. Team President, original BGR founding member, Lazy Dayz Racing founding member, and all around great guy, Eric Barile, has decided to step aside from iRacing. As a team, this is a huge loss, as Eric has been a great leader, racer and friend. We are, however, happy for Eric, that he was able to make a decision that he wanted to make for himself, and was able to sell his amazing sim-racing rig to move on to a different hobby. Life’s path has an interesting way of changing us, and the Lord knows Eric has had a great impact to everyone he has met along his path.
While Eric will not be iRacing with BGR any longer, we will still get to see him doing some console gaming, where he plans to enjoy First-Person Shooters, and spend some extra time with his family.
Eric, you will be missed by all of us. We hope to continue with the great things you started at BGR, you have left us in a great position to have fun racing, and be a successful team!
