History

Puresims Esports was founded in April 2020, shortly after the business Pure Sims Simulators was created early 2020. The team evolved from an existing well established team called CQR Club, who had competed in Special events for many years and been successful in both individual drivers and team championships in British focussed championships such as ARLTC and https://www.wgtc.uk/.

The teams debut event was in the iRacing Endurance Series and the 12h of Suzuka in the TCR class, which they ended up winning. The team also participated in early one-off broadcasted races including the SCO Six hours of Glen where they finished 3rd in the Prototype class.

In May/June this year the team adopted many members from the now defunct F4H Racing team, which bolstered their ranks with some incredible talent from the Americas region.

The team's aim is to compete in the top split of iRacing Special Events, as well as participating and challenging for podium results in the private endurance championships. Alongside endurance racing the team has a high level of engagement with ARL Touring Car Championship as well as taking part in the WGTC championships.

Later on during 2020 the team successfully qualified for the highly regarded endurance championships in multiple classes and are enjoying their debut season.
