Bedford, MA (January 12, 2012) — iRacing.com, the world’s leading online motorsports simulation service, makes its first official European appearance this week at the 2012 Autosport International. The appearance coincides with the Boston-based company’s release of its digital version of Oulton Park and the announcement of plans to build its second historic Formula One car: the Lotus 49.
Featuring precise versions of dozens of race cars and laser-scanned replicas of many of the world’s great race circuits, iRacing.com enables its members around the world to race against each other online, in real-time. iRacing’s membership currently includes more than 30,000 people from some 80 countries, including “real-world” racing professionals Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Justin and Stefan Wilson, Will Power, Simon Pagenaud and Shane van Gisbergen.
After initially focusing on its home market with North American circuits and race cars, iRacing.com has increasingly expanded its international horizons, adding cars such as the Williams-Toyota FW31, Lotus 79, Ford Falcon V8 Supercar and Radical SR8 as well as Brands Hatch, Silverstone, Phillip Island, Spa-Francorchamps, Suzuka and Zandvoort to its catalogue. The company currently has a number of international circuits under development and is in negotiation to add several new circuits and cars to its inventory.
iRacing.com will have all of its current cars and circuits loaded on two, state-of-the-art VRX simulators at its Autosport International exhibit. Everyone attending the show is cordially invited to visit Booth 7245 and take a few laps! In addition, the SimCraft APEX3 GT motion simulator will also be running iRacing software at Booth E464 in the Engineering Hall.
