I. THE INCEPTION
CoRe SimRacing (previously known as “CoRe-Racing” or “CoRe-Racing-Team”) is a premier international sim-racing team established March 9th, 2005 by two gamers from the ranks of the “CoRe Clan” (a former Battlefield Online clan). Evolving mainly in the “Live for Speed” racing simulator, the team began expansion immediately as it added very fast sim-racers to its line-up. During the following years, the team expanded greatly and had become one of the most successful and familiar virtual racing teams in the Live for Speed community. In 2012, after seven years of prestigious Live for Speed competition, CoRe had enjoyed various amounts of success earning awards and honors. The so-called “spdoRacing Event Database” ranked the sim racing team 2nd for the most ever event victories, podiums and pole-positions in “Live For Speed” active racing history – just behind My3ID Gaming, known today as Coanda SimSport.
II. A NEW CHALLENGE
After a crucial number of important members of the team decided to leave and found ineX-Racing in 2011, CoRe had to renew itself in order to continue success. By recruiting new influent members in the “Live for Speed” scene, the team strengthened its administration and management to continue sim-racing on a high competitive level. However, by 2013, the “Live for Speed” racing simulator activity dropped due to slow development and left several CoRe members opting to switch to the new popular racing simulator, iRacing.com. With help from numerous fresh and eager newcomers from iRacing’s community, CoRe SimRacing was ready to tackle a new chapter in their sim-racing career and started to build on experience in a complete new simulator environment.
III. TIME FOR AN OVERHAUL
In late 2014, through preparation to celebrate the upcoming ten year anniversary of the team, CoRe had seen their first complete rebranding and image overhaul. For a significant milestone, the team wanted to make an impact. Added to the online presence of harmonization needs, “CoRe-Racing” became CoRe SimRacing. The famous and notorious “CoRe Tiger” livery was discarded and the team decided to choose a new, modern and unique look using an orange, silver and dark grey design. However, the continuous pursuit for victory and success remained.
IV. REACHING A PEAK
In the following years, in association with several partners and sponsors, CoRe SimRacing could manifest remarkable results within the iRacing.com scene. After the team recruited a couple of talented iRacing members around the globe, CoRe started to hunt down prestigious results. Championships, victories, podiums and pole positions were gathered in various hosted iRacing competitions and in international as well as national events. The team was also able to unveil multiple podium results in iRacing’s yearly one-off events like the virtual versions of the “12h Of Sebring”, “24h Of Spa”. “6h Of Watkins Glen, “24h Nürburgring”, “24h Of LeMans” or the “Petit Le Mans”. As a peak, CoRe SimRacing proved to be the top of the competition by winning the most competitive and prestigious iRacing championship at the time: The “iRacing Blancpain GT Series” in 2017 which included an over 10,000 US-$ prize pool.
V. TO GREATNESS & BEYOND
After the success in 2017, CoRe developed advanced knowledge and experience in the sim-racing business. The team decided to take a step into the esports scene by competing and joining various online and offline events such as the yearly ADAC SimRacing Expo at the Nürburgring, the official F1 Esports Series and the McLaren’s World’s Fastest Gamer competition. Additionally, CoRe SimRacing was invited to the Porsche SimRacing Summit in Leipzig in 2018 to help encounter exciting topics around the sim-racing business and future. Today, while charging through the highest and well-known events and organizations within the sim-racing realm, such as the digital version of the Nürburging Langstrecken Serie or the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Super Cup – CoRe SimRacing is still fighting, racing and challenging sim-racing, successfully.
