iRacing.com – New Lotus Preview Video & NHMS Available
iRacing has released another preview video of the upcoming Lotus 79 Formula One car, showing the historical championship-winning car from the outside 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. The car will be able for purchase in August, being the first Formula One car in iRacing.
In related news, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway is now available for iRacing subscribers to purchase. Located in Loudon, the track is a multi-purpose racing facility, including a one mile oval that hosts races of all mayor NASCAR divisions as well as a road course that combines parts of the oval with a full blown road racing track outside the oval.
