iRacing to Start Officially Sanctioned V8 Supercar Series
iRacing has announced that their online racing simulation service will be organising an officially-sanctioned V8 Supercar Series online racing series.
Officially known as the V8 Supercars Series presented by BigPond, the Australian series will be the fourth officially-sanctioned online racing series in iRacing following virtual NASCAR, Indycar & Grand Am competition.
iRacing already offers one V8 Supercar Series race car, the Ford Falcon, as well as one Australian race track as Phillip Island is available in the simulation. The online racing service is already quite popular in Australia with several V8 Supercar Series drivers such as Shane Van Gisbergen, Fabian Coulthard, Scott McLaughlin and of course Marcus Ambrose who already raced an iRacing-sponsored car in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series.
To better accommodate Australasian sim racers, iRacing opened a second server farm in Australia back in 2010.
