GOTeam Racing is a Swedish simracing team based in Gothenburg. From 2018 onwards BSR Performance, a Swedish automotive high-performance brand, has been the team's main sponsor. The team is based in Gothenburg, Sweden.

GOTeam Racing races competitively on the iRacing and rFactor 2 platforms. On iRacing, GOTeam races in the NEO Endurance 24H Series and Swedish iRacing League. On rFactor 2, GOTeam competes rFactor 2's premier league, the Virtual Endurance Championship, in which they field three entries in division 1 and one entry in division 2 as of season 14.

GOTeam contended for third place in the 911 Cup Class in the NEO Endurance 24H Series.

In 2019, GOTeam finished 1st in the Chequered Flag Endurance 12 Hours of Le Mans, winning its first major endurance event. GOTeam Racing qualified Robin Östlund and Georgi Nedev for the historic inaugural Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia eSports final at Porsche Stockholm finishing 6th and 10th. In November, the team finishes 3rd in the P1-Gaming 24H of Nordschleiffe driving the Porsche 911 Cup Car.


GOTeam Racing is founded in 2017 by Oliver Silva and Georgi Nedev on the Gothenburg go-kart tracks. The idea for a team was first conceived in the autumn of 2016.

Since 2017 the team was primarily active on the rFactor 2 platform racing in GT, Touring Cars and Formula cars. From 2018 onwards, the team also started building an iRacing division. In 2020, the team's presence is balanced between the two platforms.

GOTeam Racing established itself as primarily an endurance racing team on rFactor 2. The team participated in two seasons of the Chequered Flag Endurance World Sportscar Championship in which they won the 12 Hours of Road Atlanta and the 12 Hours of Le Mans. The team also raced in the P1 Gaming Le Mans Series.

In 2020, GOTeam Racing acquired Swedish Simracers who were primarily active on the rFactor 2 platform in the Virtual Endurance Championship. Robert Johnsson, Richard Nilsson and Rickard Norgren joined the team.

For the 24 Hours of Daytona in 2020, GOTeam Racing collaborated with World's Fastest Gamer 2019 James Baldwin. The team fielded a Ferrari 488 in the GTE class. Later, Baldwin also joined the team for the 12 Hours of Bathurst on iRacing, finishing in 2nd place near Red Bull Racing eSports.

GOTeam Racing started participating in season 13 of the Virtual Endurance Championship. The team had two LMP2 entries and a Porsche 911 RSR driving in the GTE class. The season culminated in a controversial 2nd place in the VEC 24 Hours of Le Mans event for the division 2 car and one entry finishing in division 1 spearheaded by Moriz Mehl and Mattias Stahre.

In the 24 Hours of Le Mans event, the division 2 car collaborated with guest drivers Mickael Le Roux and Remi Delorme. In season 14, they fielded a third LMP2 car together with Benjamin Sagnes under the GOTeam Racing flag. They were assorted into division 1, amounting GOTeam's participation to four entries in two classes.


In 2018, BSR Tuning AB gets on board as a partner. Since then they have been the team's main sponsor.

The team also receives sponsorship from Onion Host, 3DRap, Sparco Gaming and the Autos y Carreras podcast.

From 2020 to 2021, the team was also sponsored by Swedish fast food restaurants Big Smajl.
