Artur "Art" Borowski is a Realish Racing driver based in Poznań, Poland.
Early, pre-RR career
Art's first racing game expercience came around age 3, when his father obtained a copy of questionable legality of the 1998 Test Drive 5 for PC. He was hooked immediately, and racing virtual cars quickly became one among his favourite acitivites, competing with such passions as learning not to crap his pants and other similiar ones common among 3-year-olds.
Throughout later years he'd discover the vast selection of racing titles. Between years 2008 and 2011(-ish) he was an active member of arcade racer TrackMania Forever community, both at a local Polish and international level, during which time he experienced his first taste of organized online competition. He somehow was understood despite using a horribly broken English at times.
In 2010 Art bought himself a copy of Gran Turismo 5. This became the start of development of his simracing skills, as GT5 was the first game he chose to play without any driving assists, although he was still using a gamepad. He made a handful of apperances in GTPlanet's Weekly Race Series, but a particulary unreliable internet connection at the time prevented him from being in any way competetive.
He further worked on his racecraft offline in Codemasters F1 series, mostly in F1 2013. In June 2018 he upgraded from a gamepad to a Thrustmaster T150 racing wheel. This encouraged him to get back into online racing.
Time at Realish Racing
Art's first club racing appearance saw him being a whopping 8 seconds off the pace. However, with him getting more and more used to his wheel, he found himself in the lower midfield sooner than later.

After reaching out to Kosumo Art was signed as a Cosmo Seiki Japan driver for the remaining rounds of both SCX and GEARS 2018, then-current Realish series. He made his official debut at Indianapolis, almost scoring a podium on his first attempt thanks to a risky undercut strategy. Hardware issued prevented him from starting at Watkins Glen.
For the Richmond season finale Art showed promising pace in qualifying, however he was unable to turn it into strong finishes due to a couple of mishaps, including an awkward four point turn against the inside barrier while trying to reverse out of it. He finished the round with a DNF and a 6th place, albeit 10 laps down on the leaders.
With the other Realish rookie Estrojenn only participating in the final round, that performance had been enough for Art to win the Newcomer's Championship of the season.
Despite living just a couple of miles from the Tor Poznań, a track once featured in Realish competition, he visits it pretty rarely despite frequent events - a fact he's deeply ashamed of.
Art spends most of his time during academic year studying psychology, hoping it'd actually help him find a proper job in the future. Among his non-racing hobbies are photography and acting.
He unironnically and genuinely enjoys the cheesiness of super eurobeat after seeing two seasons of Initial D plus the season three movie.
His support for Sebastian Vettel legally obligates him to be unfavourable towards Lewis Hamilton and everything related.
