iRacing To Add Imola And Monza In 2014


iRacing has announced its plans to add both Imola and Monza to its catalogue of laser-scanned versions of circuits from around the globe.

The announcement comes on the back of a week that has also seen the game release the Auto Club Speedway to its members – completing iRacing’s catalogue of NASCAR tracks – along with the RUF sports car, as well as announcing plans to build the Holden VF Commodore V8 Supercar.

“It’s been quite a week for iRacing and iRacers,” said Executive Vice President for iRacing, Steve Myers. “We released our 24th NASCAR Sprint Club track in Auto Club Speedway together with the RUF, and we also announced plans to build the Holden VF Commodore and Monza. Now, thanks in large part to the support of iRacers throughout Italy, we’re delighted to say we’ll be adding another legendary track in Imola to the service.”

The plans means that iRacing’s photographers and laser-scanners will spend several days in the spring in Italy to collect detailed information for both circuits. A team of artists and computer software engineers will then use the information to create the most accurate digital rendition of the tracks possible, expected to be released to the iRacing community in the summer.
