Jamie Steven Gerrard (born 24 November 1996) is a virtual racing driver from Britain. Gerrard is a test driver for Liverpool Grand Prix along with being a member of their young driver academy. He will race for FIRST Motorsport in the 2015 FV2 Series.

Personal life

Jamie was born in Toxteth, Liverpool, but now lives just outside the city, in Runcorn, Cheshire. His mother Julie was a bank clerk and his father Duncan worked as an engineer for the local Vauxhall Motors plant in Ellesmere Port. Duncan was always a fan of motor racing, and in 1999 Jamie was introduced to the sport at Oulton Park, and was taken to kart at the Three Sisters circuit by his father.

Gerrard is a supporter of Liverpool Football Club.

Career

Early career

From the age of four, Gerrard took part in open sessions at kart tracks around Cheshire, and at six, he entered his first major competitions, with his father acting as his mechanic. The Gerrard family didn't have the finances to allow Jamie to race above the level of an amateur kart driver, but local companies provided funds, allowing a step up to car racing. His impressive results in the UK meant 2013 saw his first season in international motorsport.

FV2 Series (2013-2015)

Jamie Gerrard was the first signing of the new Liverpool Grand Prix Junior Team, and his signing was greeted with some skepticism. While his results had been impressive, he had no experience in Europe, while his team mate Michael Wilkins had been racing on the continent for three years already - and at a much more mature age, many quarters thought Gerrard would have his work cut out.

He proved the doubters wrong by producing a solid first season, culminating in his first international race win in Abu Dhabi, and finishing in second place in the championship.

His second season in the championship showed improvements, with another win coming in Austria, second places in Belgium and his home race in Britain, and a third in Spain. Despite his much improved form, he was only fourth in the championship, due to impressive performances from many others in the series.

Gerrard was given his first run in Formula Virtual machinery when Liverpool placed him in free practice for the Belgian Virtual Grand Prix of 2014.

Gerrad switched to FIRST Motorsport for a third season of FV2.

Formula Virtual

Gerrard has participated in three Formula Virtual practice sessions in his career: one with Liverpool in 2014 and two with FIRST in 2016.
