Talladega comes to iRacing

iRacing writes:

"Talladega Superspeedway is host to some of the legendary races in the history of motorsport, and now our members will be able to make personal racing history of their own," said Tony Gardner, iRacing's president. "And we expect our members to enjoy competing at Talladega and elsewhere with this new version of the Chevy Impala SS. The existing Impala SS is a digital duplicate of the car that races in NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series, and version that competes in the Nationwide Series is significantly different in specification. Fans have heard NASCAR's stars discuss how the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series cars differ from a driver's perspective; now they'll be able to experience that for themselves, at big hyper-fast tracks like Talladega and Daytona, 1.5-mile tracks like Lowe's Motor Speedway, short tracks like Martinsville and Bristol, and road circuit such as Watkins Glen International and Infineon Raceway."

The story is too old to be commented.

I have been an iRacer for around 9 months now. I have to say, it is hands down the best racing simulation there is. Yes, there is still some flaws, but the kinks will be worked out through updates. I have confidence this will be the best simulation ever.

There currently is only about 15 car types and only like 30 some odd tracks, but there is dozens more coming this year and next.

It's nice to see someone posting sim-racing news around here.

The fact that so many real world drivers use it as a training tool show how realistic it is. Other sims have a lot of catching up to do but I think now iRacing has raised the bar particulary in its use of laser scanned tracks which other developers are now slowly starting to use.
