SimRaceWay continues to add iconic Mclaren machinery to their online racing title as part of their “Mclaren-Month”.

The newest addition is the 1988 Mclaren MP4/4, the turbo-powered car took Ayrton Senna to his first of three Formula One World Championships.

While the MP4/4 has made the history books as one of the most successful F1 cars of all times, it’s presumably the most expensive add-on content ever sold in the sim racing world as SimRaceWay charges members $38 to drive the car.

The base content of SimRaceWay is free for everyone to try, giving players access to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X as well as Mid Ohio, Infineon Raceway & Zandvoort. Additional content is available for purchase with prices ranging from a few cents to several dollars.

The title puts an emphasis on online racing, using a real-time skill matching system to offer close racing. Like SimRaceWay’s past website that was based on rFactor & other simulations, the new title will again be offering paid online races where players have to pay an entry fee to compete, free online events are available as well.
