iRacing.com – ALMS Partnership Coming Up?
iRacing.com has already successfully teamed up with many series, being the official simulator of both the SCCA and the Star Mazda Series as well as running an official NASCAR online racing league in 2010.
Now, the company seems to have sealed another important deal in American motorsports as the American Le Mans Series homepage includes a bit of interesting info, hidden in one of the latest articles:
“On Monday (July 13), BMW Rahal Letterman Racing Team’s Tommy Milner, who drives one of two M3 race cars in the Series’ GT2 class, will be featured live Monday morning on New York City’s WPIX-TV from BMW’s Manhattan showroom. iRacing, the official training simulator of Lime Rock Park and the American Le Mans Series, will have a component in the segment as well.”
No official word from iRacing has been given on this yet, an official American Le Mans Series press article would not state that for no good reason though. With the Corvette C6.R and the Ford GT-R, two ALMS cars from the GT1 and GT2 classes have already been announced to come to the simulation, a big portion of the series’ track schedule is already available too.
If this partnership turns out to be true, iRacers may be getting their hands on a Le Mans Prototype in the future.
