iRacing.com is closing in on an important milestone as the online racing service is getting close to celebrating 500 million laps completed by its members.
Since iRacing opened for business in mid 2008, iRacing subscribers have completed over 380 million laps, 170 million of which have been completed in one of iRacing’s 30 official series. Another 115 million laps have been completed in open practice while the over 200 private leagues account for 50 million laps run. The impressive figures don’t even include the laps run by sim racers in private testing, a number which iRacing estimates goes into the hundreds of millions as well.
To celebrate the big 500 million milestone, iRacing will be having several prizes for their subscribers in store. The person who completes the 500 million lap will get a free 5-year membership in reward, all iRacing subscribers racing in one of the official series the day the milestone is reached will be getting $5 of iRacing credit as well.
Furthermore, the driver who completes the most series laps between now and the milestone will be getting $500 of credit, since oval drivers can complete laps quicker than road course racers there will also be a $500 credit for the busiest road course racer. To wrap things up, the subscribers with the most wins between now and the milestone will be getting $500 of credit as well.
