Earlier today, iRacing announced to open a new base of race-hosting servers in Australia and a new partnership with NASCAR driver Marcos Ambrose to promote the simulation down-under.
It seems like that iRacing’s Australia efforts won’t end with a special promo rate for new members as AustralianIT reports that iRacing is currently looking to accquire the Australian V8 Supercar license. That would bring the country’s most important touring car series to the simulation, a perfect match for the deal with Marcos Ambrose who managed to win the series championship in 2003 & 2004.
The V8 Supercar series uses race cars from Ford & Holden, it races on spectacular Australian tracks like Bathurst, Adelaide and Surfers Paradise. A virtual version of the stunning Mount Panorama raceway Bathurst is specifically mentioned as a possibility in the article, alongside other “local tracks”.
Looks like iRacing is working hard on expanding their content portfolio way beyond the United States. Pair that up with the floating IRL rumors and iRacers may be looking into an rather exciting future.
