7.4.2022 Team Report
Here at DeltaSport we have been working behind the scenes on many new things to share. First we have 4 new arrivals and we at DeltaSport are excited to have the team grow. We are also pleased to announce our merging with Hardpoint, a professional IMSA racing team! With the month of June behind us, we are in full speed with more race ahead of us!
Introducing Hardpoint by DeltaSport
DeltaSport and Hardpoint Motorsports have come together with a passion for education, growth of the sport as well as competition making DeltaSport the official sim-racing team of Hardpoint. Together, the efforts and resources along with Race Factory have created a ladder of opportunity, not only to our drivers but individuals in intern positions as well as our STEM programs. We are excited for the future with Hardpoint, and hoping to bring more to the brand, and sponsorships and awareness to the sport through exposure to the sport through STEM. As of right now the team is adopting the Delta Red paints that were rolled out as the final branding for the team in 2020 with Hardpoint branding. Anything Porsche entries will have the IRL Hardpoint paint that you see racing in the IMSA series. We are excited for what the future has in store for Hardpoint by DeltaSport.
Cameron Martineau (Official Driver from HP), a 27 year old American from New Hampshire. Martineau's racing career started differently than the most at DeltaSport, he did not start in a car.... he started on the slopes. As a successful competitive downhill ski racer, Martineau landed himself many victories and podiums that spanned throughout 14 years of his life. In 2018, Martineau fell into the spiral of sim racing, and has competed in various leagues and special events. Martineau is also passionate about karting, after graduating college he purchased his first kart, and has been racing karts at a regional level, in addition to sim. Martineau is eager to learn from all the great drivers that are already in DeltaSport's program, and stated that having the opportunity to work with such highly skilled drivers both in real life and in sim is going to be such a privilege. As a driver with a different background than the others, Martineau brings a new competition level to the track.
Jacob Tofts (Official Driver from HP), a 19 year old British driver who has been sim racing since he was 14. Surrounded by motorsport all his life, Tofts has been able to attend to the race track since the age of 10 and been able to gradually take on responsibilities to help preparing the cars at the track. Tofts has been 2 time PCGB Sim Racing Champion in the Creventic Endurance Series Champions, with drivers Chris Walsh and Ryan Parkins. He sees himself doing much more sim racing in the near future and hopes to be successful in either sim or real racing. Tofts has made an appearance at Silverstone, driving a Formula Ford 1600 and will be testing at Brands Hatch during the summer. With an upcoming driver like Jacob, he will be the one who can take on other strong drivers on the track.
Pieter-Jan Claeysens (Trial), a 31 year old driver from Belgium. At the age of 5 Claeysens started his racing career and karted his way to the age of 10. In his mid 20's Claeysens raced his way to rFactor2 and raced in the VEC league, then shifted towards iRacing. After the switch, Claeysens found what he loved to do the most which is GTE, but stated that the Porsche RSR has been the most important car at the beginning of his iRacing career. Claeysens has won three IVRA races in both Endurance and ClubSport, most importantly the 12Hr of Spa, where he successfully defended into the final corner. Claeysens wants to improve as driver, and help carry out great things at DeltaSport, and is excited to know more about the work the team does outside of the sim. As a strong driver like Claeysens, he will be the one to challenge the other drivers on the track.
