iRacing has announced a new track addition to their online racing simulation as Great Britain’s Rockingham Speedway will join the title.

Rockingham is famous for being one of only two American-style oval tracks in Europe alongside the Eurospeedway Lausitz, the track will be the fifth British track in iRacing, joining Silverstone, Donington Park, Brands Hatch & Oulton Park.

For the past week, iRacing’s laser-scanning crew has already been busy track side as you can see below.

Located in Northhamptonshire, Rockingham Motors Speedway is best known as the UK’s host of two CART Grand Prix in 2001 and 2002. Aside from the 1.47 mile oval configuration that was used by CART, the track also includes a 1.94 mile road course and twelve other configurations used for various events.

    Wonder if LFS version will ever get released.

    • Bedo

      Chances of World Sports Cars…err Racing Legends being released are greater. :p

        wow, other people remember. lol

        shame they were b4 the days of kickstarter tbf

    • RapidRefund

      The LFS team needs to get serious about developing racing games and move beyond hobby business mode and add staff and create at a pace relevant to that of the industry around them.

    Another BTCC track to collection! Well done iRacing. Snetterton next?

    • Bakkster

      Already signed, along with Croft, Mallory, and Thruxton. I don’t particularly expect more than one or two of those in the next two years.

        Now if only the BTCC teams would stop being bitches and let them gather data lol

        I really want to compare the Honda BTCC in rFactor 2 to iRacing, cause i love the rF2 one

      • StarFoxySxv550

        I don’t know, championships and a lot of money rides on some of that data. Sucks that the high level of simulation on display may be holding content back, but I’d understand the reasons.

      • Bakkster

        Though for BTCC it’s a bit odd, since all the cars are identical under the skins (everyone uses a spec subframe).

      • StarFoxySxv550

        Wouldn’t that make any other info even more top secret? Cant be much feel in motoring along on-top a subframe.

      • Bakkster

        Whole class is performance balanced. The spec subframe houses a spec suspension, the only difference is a bit of aero and the wheelbase. Even the engines are all customer deals, ironically the Civic and BMW iRacing have signed even have the same engine builder…

  • gianluca p

    Great track, I won’t mind having this in pCars one day.

  • Felipe Elias

    What about an updated Silverstone? Or Thruxton? Would be nice…
