As we head into our final round of the SRO AM Championship this season, we thought it might be nice to give you a little bit more insight into the drivers, and their perceived styles behind the wheel.

A little while ago we asked our AM Championship regulars to have a think about which real world racing driver they most liken themselves to, to give the audience at home a bit of an idea of the type of personalities and driving styles behind those virtual wheels.

Maybe you are new to esport racing, or haven't followed the series closely enough to have naturally found a favourite driver or two to cheer on. Worry not, maybe this little guide can help you pick out someone to root for come race day tomorrow afternoon!

Great idea for this piece.
Would like to see a video on each of the drivers per week, until we are through the entire field.
Is that the plan?
