iRacing.com – First Lotus 79 Screenshots

iRacing.com has released two screenshots of the Lotus 79, the first Formula One car to make its way into the online racing simulation. The shots show the historic British racing car at Watkins Glen, sporting the legendary John Player Special livery in a slightly changed form.

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.

The addition of the car will most likely get many European sim racers interested in iRacing as you don’t often get a chance to drive a fully laser-scanned legendary Formula One car elsewhere. The Lotus is expected to be available with the new build of iRacing’s simulation.

    even being 1 month free , i don’t want it because when the time go out i will not pay for it , so this offer is pointless to me , i consider this game a scam for nerds , the price is TOO HIGH if you wanna play it for long time…

    LOL, that was a good lough :D

    You missed the whole point, m8!
    EA, Polyphony Digital, ISI, Simbin, etc sell you cars, tracks and AI, that you can race all you want. with abs, stability help, autobraking etc. but after a day or so it will get boring and you would want more cars more tracks, better graphics because you want to feel this rewarding feeling of success!

    Which leads us to why IRacing can get people to pay 19$ (2 pizza) a month for 2 cars and 7 tracks

    IRacing sells you a complete package to race with others,
    under the best possible condition. And if you’re good at it, you might get a seat in a real racing car, for a season.

    Vkt-2:
    i have seen enough to know that is completly overpriced

    There is only one thing I can say to that.
    Any person who are very good at something, will tell you that it is not about the best tools, BUT HOW YOU USE YOUR TOOLS and the expirience, that will give you the ability to fully appreciate a better tool.

    9 cars and 21 tracks, is not worth enough for you? :happyevil:
    what are your lap times at each track with every car? :wink: LOL :idea: :idea:
    Do you have balls enough to share them with us?

    IRacing is not for everyone, and I hope that it wont get to the level of being gamer cheap! I mean, have you ever read comments on youtube, its free to comment there and people do so, which really shows that most people talk before they think!? :sad2:

    Nerds?

    Hmm … you’re a poster and visitor to a sim racing blog. Doesn’t that make you more of a nerd than 95 percent of the people who play Burnout, GRID and other so-called “racing” games on consoles?

    Just checking.
