iRacing.com – COTA Scanning Started
iRacing probably has the most complete database of US race tracks of any simulation, having covered the vast majority of road courses and ovals in the United States.
Now, the company is tackling the newest major facility in North America – The Circuit of the Americas.
Located near Austin, Texas, COTA is the new home of the United States Formula One Grand Prix. Aside from F1, the track has hosted other major racing series like the World Endurance Championship and Grand-Am.
The 5.5 kilometer track layout designed by Hermann Tilke has been getting rave reviews from drivers, featuring many challenging corners & elevation changes.
As you can see below, iRacing is currently busy laser-scanning the facility to create a virtual version of the track.
