iRacing Motorsport Simulation, LLC today announced plans to create digital versions of Ferrari’s models. The first product of the partnership between the renowned eSport racing service and the iconic brand will be a virtual Ferrari 488 GTE as raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans and other events in the 2016 World Endurance Championship.

“This is a landmark moment for iRacing and online racing,” says Steve Myers, Executive Vice President and Executive Producer for iRacing.com. “Ferrari is synonymous with world championship caliber race cars and high performance automobiles. The Prancing Horse logo famously inspires passion among racing and automotive aficionados everywhere. iRacers are also passionate about online racing and I have no doubt they will be thrilled at the prospects of racing the 488 GTE and other Ferraris in the future.”

The Ferrari 488 will join iRacing’s stable of more than 50 meticulously-modeled open wheel, sedan, sports and stock cars which race on laser-scanned versions of the world’s legendary road courses and ovals in private leagues and officially-sanctioned series including the Blancpain GT Series, the iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series and the NASCAR PEAK Antifreeze Series.

Perhaps La Carrera Panamericana would be the definitive challenge.

P.s.: I would really love to see more Ferraris. Like an old-glorious Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge: that serie really put emphasis on the driver finesse! Check: http://auto.ferrari.com/en_EN/sports-cars-models/past-models/360-challenge/!

Whaooooo, optimal! This is good for races … but, for good cars battles Ferrari needs Porsche as opponent! Please iRacing, give us the 911!

This is Gr8 news!! Maybe the GTE, C6 and DBR9 vs GT3’s mutliclass? That would be awesome. Or maybe we can dream of the 911 and the new Ford GT!! :-)

Now lets get a deal with Porsche so we can run 911GT3 or 911 GT3 RS and maybe a Spec Boxster to replace the Slowstice?

This is great news, at the end iRacing has listened to me and all those who asked the Ferrari, now we need the LMP1 to race at Le Mans.

If I can’t drive a Ferarri in the physical world, iRacing’s digital virtual world is a great simulation of the real thing.

How about Chris Amon’s Ferrari from the 1967 GP season to run alongside the Lotus in Grand Prix Legends?

Once iRacing now has partnership with Ferrari and Honda, there’s the possibility we have these two historical cars of F1?

Since we are dreaming… A proper Ferrari and Porsche are at the top of the list along with adding Industry Leading Force Feedback would be my DREAM. Look to A/C FFB to figure out how you can make iRacing the TOTAL DREAM SIM I’ve been waiting for. :-)

How about getting Macau?

Big Boy Barry
November 24th, 2016 at 4:57 am

Street circuits pose colossal challenges as a) they can only be scanned during race weekends when, not surprisingly, the “track” is “hot” during most of the daylight hours and b) they are mega-complex from an artwork standpoint in terms of rendering buildings, etc AND those buildings are constantly changing what with ongoing construction etc. So I wouldn’t expect iRacing to offer Macau any time in the foreseeable future.

Yes. Now its time to go Iracing again :)
