Vulcan Sim Racing Academy - known also as Vulcan Racing Academy or VSR Academy - is Vulcan Sim Racing's junior team, a team where promising up and coming talent join to prove their worth before graduating to the senior team at around 4000 iRating. Prior to February 2021, the academy was much more scaled-down and was a section of the main team, serving the same purpose and producing notable quick drivers such as Luke McKeown, Leon Penn, and Mohammed Janko.

The academy is managed by veteran VSR driver Adam Gladden and former academy graduate Rob Sutherland.

The first graduates of the new Academy were LMP2 drivers Maxim Knaz and Alessandro Longoni in March 2021.
