iRacing.com has released a new preview of their Lotus 49 historical Formula One car that is due to join their online racing simulation rather soon.
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.
The Lotus is now available for pre-order alongside Rockingham and Oran Park. Subscribers who pre-order all three of them will receive a 10% rebate.
