Foundation

The team is officially founded by Oliver and Georgi. They know each other from the go-kart tracks in Gothenburg. The idea was first conceived in the autumn of 2016. In short, the plan was to become the best Swedish simracing team and do simracing as professionally as possible. The team activities started with Georgi competing in the ESL GO-4 cups on PS4 and Project Cars and Oliver in the Göteborg Internet Racing League Clio Cup on rFactor2.
