History

Vulcan Sim Racing is an iRacing endurance team founded in April 2020 by Steven Leahy and Neil Goodacre. The first evolution of Vulcan Sim Racing comprised of the duo and two other drivers from Paul King's community Discord (Lucas Adam and Dominik Förster). They initially banded together to run the 12hr of Suzuka in the iRacing Endurance Series, coming out with a 2nd place in the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 in the team's first endurance race.


From there the team grew in size in the next four months, gaining notable members such as Steven Norman, Mohammed Janko, Tom Male, Adam Gladden and Luke McKeown until the team had an active roster of around 15 drivers by early August 2020.


Departures of long-time drivers Steven Norman, Antonio Baptista Fernandes, and Luke McKeown in late 2020 and early 2021 opened the door for a new cohort of Vulcan drivers including Vulcan Sim Racing Academy manager Rob Sutherland and former iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series driver Blake Townend.


The Vulcan Sim Racing Academy was launched in February 2021 and the first graduates Maxim Knaz and Alessandro Longoni joined in March 2021.
