Racing refined, that is sim racing. Allowing people from all over the world to experience the competitive motorsport scene at a fraction of the price, from the safety of their own homes. The cars may not be real, but the racing and skill required to pilot these virtual machines is.
While sim racing titles are referred to as “games”, they really should be called “simulators” because they are able to accurately mimic exactly what happens in a real life race.
The physics of the cars, the ever changing weather and track conditions, and the focus required to maintain speed throughout a race are all accurately depicted within every simulator. With easy accessibility to sim racing, the competition is the highest in the world.
Saw the creation of TCS Off Racing, a new sim racing team with enormous goals and motivation. Led by Carter McColman, the team started to take form within the Grand Prix Virtual World Championship (GPVWC). The teams first race came in the Checkered Flag Endurance 4 hours of Sepang with two Corvette C7Rs and one Oreca 07 LMP2 on the rFactor 2 simulation.
It took 4 hours for the team to get their first podium, finishing P3 in the LMP2 class driven by Jarrod Van Der Weide and Fabian Rudde, an astonishing result for a brand new team. The team then ventured into the International Touring Car scene in GPVWC, becoming the vice champions of division 2.
The team was offered a spot in the GPVWC SuperCup in their first season, something that is only awarded to teams that have shown great promise. With a strong lineup of James Clay and Lorenzo De Ciutiis, we were ready to challenge for the top steps.
The team also entered Formula Sim Racing, an rFactor2 league known for their fierce competition and high quality of racing. Having a team in both the Academy and Pro championships was a mighty achievement for such a young team to the league. The best result came in the Singapore Grand Prix with victory by Tom Oldenmenger.
Other notable events from the 2019 campaign were our first entries into the official Studio 397 endurance events on rFactor2, most notably qualifying in second place for the Studio 397 24H Le Mans, beating out some well established teams. The team also contested the Sebring Prelude event, a 3 hour race in GT3 cars. After a successful year, the team moved on to 2020 with even larger ambitions.
was a year of change, fresh faces entered including a brand new division in the team, old ones departed, and a couple name changes were made. In GPVWC, the team moved up the ladder into the SuperLeague Lights series, the direct feeder series into the flagship SuperLeague. Preseason looked promising however the season would prove to be a test of the team’s ability.
As for FSR, the team decided to not re-enter the series after re-evaluating and determining that it was not the right fit moving forward. Brand new to the team for 2020 was the iRacing division.
Filled with promise and aspirations, the team tackled the Daytona 24h Official event with 3 cars with success. Later on in the year the team would claim the 2020 AOR Formula 3 Season 4 vice championship and would miss out on the top step by only 34 points after missing the first two rounds.
On March 1st 2020 the team transformed into Allied Racing eSports by TCS Off, a collaboration between real life German race team Allied Racing and sim racing team TCS Off Racing. That deal would only last until July 2nd, but the change would prove to be the best thing for the team.
On July 14th, Volante Racing was born. A brand new feel and environment washed over the team as the quest to be the best continued stronger than ever. Competing in the FIA Formula E #RaceAtHome Series, the DTM Esports series, rFactor2 GT Challenge (Split 1), Virtual Endurance Championship (24h Le Mans Winners), BMW M2 CS Cup, SimPower PorscheSport Carrera Cup (3rd in championship), Virtual Belcar (Vice Champions Porsche 911 Cup Car), 24H SERIES ESPORTS (Porsche 911 Cup Car), and many more!
