iRacing.com announced today it has reached an agreement with Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari (aka Imola) to build a laser-scanned version of the famed Italian circuit.
The announcement caps a remarkable week for iRacing, during which it released Auto Club Speedway to its members (completing iRacing’s catalogue of NASCAR Sprint Cup tracks) along with the RUF sports car . . . and announced plans to build the Holden VF Commodore V8 Supercar as well as the Autodromo Nazionale Monza (Monza).
“It’s been quite a week for iRacing and iRacers,” says Steve Myers, executive vice president and executive producer of iRacing.com. “We released our 24th NASCAR Sprint Club track in Auto Club Speedway together with the RUF, and we also announced plans to build the Holden VF Commodore and Monza. Now, thanks in large part to the support of iRacers throughout Italy, we’re delighted to say we’ll be adding another legendary track in Imola to the service.
“It sure has been an exciting week at iRacing. But it wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible enthusiasm of our members.’ – Tony Gardner
“It sure has been an exciting week at iRacing,” added Tony Gardner, president of iRacing.com. “But it wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible enthusiasm of our members. Their passion for iRacing is truly gratifying . . . and it’ll help carry us forward with what is shaping-up as a challenging ‘To Do’ list.”
Today’s announcement also means plenty of work for travel agents, who will be adding a stop in Imola to the itinerary of iRacing’s laser-scan technicians and photographers already scheduled to visit Monza this spring. And it adds to the anticipation of 50,000 iRacers worldwide looking forward to the addition of Monza, the Holden VF Commodore, another RUF and now Imola to the service in 2014 . . . while they’re sim-racing on the full slate of NASCAR Sprint Cup tracks.
