History

Founded in 2015, the brainchild of Australian sim racing royalty Matt Scott, The Guild of Australian Young Stars (GAYS) was created to nourish young talent in the Australian community.
The GAYS competed in their first race challenging other Australian talent in the Australian Endurance Championship. While the team accumulated an enormous lead it was quickly squandered with a barrage of penalties resulting in a 3rd place.

Controversy

Due to previously unforeseen circumstances The Guild of Australian Young Stars when placed in acronym form spells out a slur. Due to the aggressive licencing of the GAYS team name too much time and money was spent to be able to change it. Teams in the Australian community have claimed that the name was derived from the acronym however no proof of this has been found.
