Using VR with Steam-Based Racing Sims?

I hope that I'm posting this in the correct sub-forum.....If not, I apologize.

As discussed in a separate thread, I just ordered the Lenovo Explorer Windows Mixed Reality Headset to dip my toe into the world of sim-racing in VR.

I've been running Steam-based sims such as Race Room, PC2, AC, RF2, Dirt Rally etc in single screen with no problems. How do I make the conversion to VR? In other words, is there some extra content to download and install (such as "SteamVR")? Or do the sims automatically detect the VR hardware somehow? Perhaps there's a "how-to" posted somewhere that answers these questions?

I expect the headset to be delivered in the next day or so, and would like to get it up and running quickly. So can someone help me out with these questions (and with any other related questions that I'm too ignorant to even know to ask about)?

Thanks!

Steam will likely detect the headset and install steam VR. I have a rift and there are no issues with using steam. It should be pretty much plug and play.

If so, that would be great!

Thanks!
