iRacing’s Dave Kaemmer has shared some new previews of the Lotus 49 Formula One car that is soon coming to iRacing.
Alongside the previews showing the car in some custom liveries, Kaemmer also shared a very detailed development blog that you can check out here.
Designed around the Cosworth DFV V8 engine that became the de-facto standard in Formula One through the 1970s, the Lotus 49 became one of the company’s most successful Formula One cars.
The car won its debut race at Zandvoort in the hands of Jim Clark, the Scotsman, Graham Hill & Jochen Rindt went on to score 12 Grand Prix wins and no less than two driver & constructors’ world championships in the 49.
Back in November 2012, iRacing decided to delay the release of the Lotus 49 in order to allow more development time to put into the car.
