RaceKraft Esports (RKE) is an international sim racing team based on the iRacing.com simulator service. Founded by Brian Lockwood and Mehdi El Fathy in 2017 with no high-level experience, few connections, and only a shared passion for simracing, the team (formerly called RaceKraft Engineering) was solely a Skip Barber F2000 team for its first year – earning a championship and 3rd place in the top Skippy league (the 2K World Cup) – before moving on to the F3 at the start of 2019 and dominating the season of its release, achieving a few World Records at the time.
Since then, they have shifted their focus to entering the highest level of iRacing’s esports scene, such as the 2019 Sports Car Open GT Series and the 2019-2020 24H SERIES ESPORTS.
