From the virtual sands of Daytona and the digital bricks of Indianapolis to the simulated shores of Phillip Island, the 2012 World Tour will enable iRacers to compete in online versions of some of the world’s classic motorsports events.   Scheduled for the same weekends as their real-world counterparts, the World Tour events are open to all iRacers, regardless of license level, who own the appropriate car/track content.

The schedule kicks-off with a mixed-class GRAND-AM doubleheader at Daytona International Speedway – the GRAND-AM Continental Showdown Before the 2.4 and the GRAND-AM Racing 2.4 Hours at Daytona  — on January 27/28.  The World Tour returns to Daytona for the Daytona 500 on February 25 and continues on to Sebring, Charlotte, multiple events at Indianapolis, Spa-Francorchamps, Phillip Island, Talladega and Road Atlanta.  Highlights include a back-to-back doubleheader – the Indianapolis 500 and Coke 600 — on the May 26, and another doubleheader weekend on July 27/28 at Indianapolis celebrating of the GRAND-AM/NASCAR Brickyard 400.
