iRacing.com has announced a very exciting content addition to their simulation on the Autosport International Show in Birmingham today as the 2009 Williams FW31 car will be joining their simulation later this year.
After their initial focus on American Oval racing content, iRacing has slowly broadened their content towards the liking of European road racing fans. iRacing.com’s FW31 will give sim racers the rare chance to drive a laser-scanned, professionally-produced Formula One car on many laser-scanned tracks, tempting even more people to subscribe.
Production of the car has already begun as the iRacing crew has started to collect data at the Williams F1 headquaters in Grove, the car will be available later this year, selling for $12.95 (iRacing subscription required)
Driven by Nico Rosberg & Kazuki Nakajima, the FW31 was powered by a Toyota V8-engine and was one of the first cars to make use of the controversial rear diffusor in the early parts of the 2009 season. Rosberg managed to clinch 34.5 championship points, helping Williams to a 7th place in the manufacturers championship.
