Background / History
iGP Manager was founded by Jack Basford in 2011 after financial setbacks pursuing a career as a racing driver.
Unable to afford racing beyond PC racing simulators, in 2008 Jack entered and won a Formula 1 driver talent search which was due to be televised.
In an unfortunate twist of events as the competition came to a close, F1 broadcasting rights were sold to a new television company, who dropped the show before it could air.
This eliminated funding overnight and with it the best opportunity of a professional, fully-funded career as a racing driver.
From there, Jack managed the highly successful sim racing team 3ID Motorsport to multiple championship titles on racing simulators.
Jack Basford, CEO, iGP Games
By 2010, disillusioned with racing and now in his 20s, Jack decided to pursue life as a technology entrepreneur.
He then teamed up with friend Andrew to build iGP Manager. Several months in to the project, they rented a small flat in chilly Inverness, Scotland where they lived and coded for 6 months up to the launch of iGP Manager.
Despite no prior training in game development, the pair successfully released iGP Manager in December 2011.
After iGP Manager's release, Jack returned to London and Andrew gradually moved on to other projects. A few years later, in 2014 Jack moved to Norway to live with his partner Caroline, where he continues to run iGP Games.
