Following first preview screenshots two weeks ago, iRacing has now released a short preview clip of the Lotus 79 Formula One car at Watkins Glen.
Driven by notable drivers such as Mario Andretti and Ronnie Peterson, the 79 was the first Formula One car to make full use of ground effect aerodynamics. The car scored 7 wins in 26 races, helping Mario Andretti to win the 1978 Formula One world championship.
As confirmed by iRacing, the car will be the first historic racing car to make it into the online racing simulation, more historic vehicles are planned to join the sim in the future. The Lotus is expected to be available with the new build of iRacing’s simulation.
