    iRacing.com and McLaren have announced a second project with McLaren that will involve bringing the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 to the iRacing service. iRacing regulars will remember the first project between iRacing and McLaren that saw McLaren Electronics's ATLAS data acquisition/telemetry software brought into the iRacing service and this new development will be a most welcome addition. The McLaren MP4-12C GT3 has already raced in the British GT Championship at Spa-Francorchamps, the Total 24 hours of Spa and the Blancpain Endurance Series race at Magny Cours. A McLaren spokesman said:

    No firm date has been announced for this new car other than it will be available to iRacing members in 2012.

    Man have i heard that alot since i started iRacing :)

    No but seriously, the car might arrive in Jan/Feb, can´t remember when the next build comes.

    The HPD was announced in March, the car arrived in August so that´s 5 months.
    Mclaren was announced in September so that is February.

    I really hope we don´t see the car in May..

    Next big build comes early February when 2012 S1 starts. The Lotus 49 was announced late 2011 and will be there late 2012. I guess you really can't tell how long it will take them. Hoping for the McL in 2012 S1 though.

    Also, with the Porsche license probably even a bridge too far for even iRacing, they have decided to provide us with a decent alternative............ the RUF.

    With a BTCC car also being lined up, road racers of the iRacing community rejoice.

    Daz, where did you find the news of the BTCC car? I know there have been requests for it, but never knew they were actually honoured.
