iRacing is pleased to welcome Force Dynamics as the title sponsor of the Force Dynamics Dallara iRacing Grand Prix Championship for the 2021 season. The long-awaited return of grand prix-style competition at the professional level on iRacing kicks off on September 16 at Watkins Glen International, with a $25,000 prize pool at the end of the season.
“As longtime fans of iRacing and of Dave Kaemmer’s groundbreaking simulation titles dating back to the ’90s, Force Dynamics is thrilled to join iRacing for the 2021 season,” said David Wiernicki, president, Force Dynamics.
Founded in 2005, Force Dynamics designs and manufactures high-performance motion systems such as racing and flight simulators, as well as custom motion platforms. Located in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, just minutes from Watkins Glen, the company has shipped more than 140 motion systems to customers from around the world. Force Dynamics’ 401cr motion system is unique in the marketplace in providing accurate, consistent g-loading and full one-to-one yaw capability, resulting in unparalleled accuracy and feel in a small simulator.
After a multi-year absence, the iRacing Grand Prix Championship returns with a 26-driver roster and nearly three months of wheel-to-wheel action. Utilizing the Dallara iR-01, a bespoke grand prix-style car designed and built by Dallara and iRacing, the series will visit 10 of the world’s premier road racing facilities, from active European Grand Prix venues like Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Silverstone Circuit to premier North American circuits like Road America and Road Atlanta.
The Force Dynamics Dallara iRacing Grand Prix Championship will stream on Thursdays at 3PM ET starting on September 16. For more information on Force Dynamics, visit www.force-dynamics.com. For more information on iRacing and for special offers, visit www.iracing.com.
