Bedford, MA (September 23, 2013) The world’s premier motorsports simulation service keeps getting better and better.  Recent weeks have seen the release of the Mac OS X version of iRacing and the addition of full native support for the Oculus Rift Virtual headset to the service.  Today, iRacing.com announced a Linux version of the online racing service is now available.

With these new releases, iRacing enhances an international reputation for its state-of-the-art technology and accuracy, together with a fun, easy-to-use functionality that attracts beginners and pro drivers alike.  With constant updates and improvements to its feature-rich, centralized service, iRacing has proven hugely popular across a broad spectrum of motorsports including open wheel, stock and sports cars, road course, speedway and short track racing.

The new Mac OS X and Linux versions are expected to boost what are already some very impressive numbers for the service; numbers like 793,735,000 racing laps run, 50,000 members worldwide and some 350 private leagues.  With nearly 40 different official series featuring more than two-dozen meticulously-modeled cars on 60 laser-scanned tracks – and new cars, tracks and features in the pipeline — the months ahead will see iRacing.com continue to do what it does best: get better and better.

This is awesome ! I may very well run Linux on my machine when I have a machine. I have one question: What of force feedback drivers? Or writing one’s own?

Only issue I have with this as a Ubuntu 13.04 user is that there is no drivers for logitech wheels on linux.

@Ryan…. Logitech wheels are support in linux-3.8.0 (13.04’s default kernel). you can also grab the absolute latest kernel from the Kernel Team’s PPA.

I would like to buy a month+ but without a demo I can’t determine if it will support 3 screens on linux?

1280×1024 – 1280×1024 – 1280×1024

Please let me know if it does.
