Avid Chronic Racing (ACR) | iSimRS Partners
Professional simracing team, aiming to become one of the most successful simracing and esports teams, partnered with Zakspeed.
Avid Chronic Racing (ACR) is an international esports and simracing team. The team has roots in console and PC racing, and races in leagues worldwide with a variety of drivers. ACR is active on the simulation platforms rFactor 2, Assetto Corsa, RaceRoom Racing Experience, iRacing, Project C.A.R.S 2 and the Codemasters F1 series of games.
Avid Chronic Racing was established as a top tier console racing team founded in 2009 in coordination and conjunction of the TSR and SITH teams and their leaders. ACR set out to have a team 100% focused on developing drivers and attracting the best talent already out there to create that top tier team. With the introduction of the team forums on the Apex Racing League (ARL), now called Apex Online Racing (AOR), in March 2012 this allowed a vast expansion into a massive community of drivers and characters.
“The origins of the name were when the SITH team and TSR team combined in 2009 when playing Forza Motorsport 3 at launch. This led me to come up with the name and there was this one car that was featured in Forza 3 and I loved it. Dodge Viper ACR. Then I stumbled upon their ACR logo which we used during the first few years. I just had to come up with what words the acronym ACR would stand for. And because we were all basically “addicted” to racing that was the keyword that I ran with. When I put all three together for the first time I knew it described me and its members perfectly. We were all completely addicted to racing virtual and real life.”
