Background / History
iGP Manager was founded in 2011 by Jack Basford after financial difficulty pursuing a career as a racing driver.
In 2008 Jack entered and won a talent search for a Formula One driver, via an Esports competition.
It was due to be televised and the winner would race in Formula BMW the following year.
But as the competition ended, F1's television rights were sold to a new company that cancelled the TV show.
This eliminated funding for the competition overnight and the prize disappeared.
Being the time of the financial crisis, there were few other opportunities.
Jack Basford, CEO, iGP Games
From there Jack founded the illustrious Esports team 3ID Motorsport, which won multiple championships on various racing simulators.
Somewhat disillusioned with racing, Jack also started pursuing his passion for technology as an entrepreneur.
Moving in to a cold, cramped flat in Iverness (Scotland) with his friend Andrew, where the pair coded the first version of iGP Manager and released it in December 2011 as a browser-game.
The turbulent and unsustainble lifestyle of young startups gradually led Andrew to other projects.
Jack meanwhile took a calculated risk, going in to debt to fund the building of a new and improved cross-device iGP Manager.
In 2017 the new and revised iGP Manager was released and has been a huge success, growing rapidly ever since.
Now one of the largest games of its kind, with a young and ambitious team behind it, all working from home, iGP Games remains a fully independent studio.
