    iRacing.com will build a virtual version of the 2009 AT&T Williams FW31 and make it available to members of its internet-based global motorsport simulation service. The announcement at the Autosport International show was made jointly by Williams F1 and iRacing.com Motorsport Simulation, LLC.

    “Our members range from full-time professional racing drivers to fans who may never sit in a racing car in the physical world,” said Divina Galica, iRacing’s director of client relations.

    “We’re excited by the prospect of producing an exact digital duplicate of the AT&T Williams FW31 and very pleased to be able to make the announcement here in the UK, the home of Williams F1 and to the second largest national contingent of iRacers.”

    Galica said iRacing will begin working on the FW31, last year’s car, this week at Williams’s headquarters in Grove and that the car is expected to join iRacing’s line-up later this year.

    “We’ve been well aware of the superb quality and extreme degree of accuracy of iRacing’s simulation,” said Tom Potter, Williams F1’s Commercial Alliances Manager. “More people travel into space than are afforded the opportunity to drive a current Formula 1 car.

    “The annual Philips global promotion with AT&T Williams uniquely offers that opportunity and iRacing has already shown it is a superb form of preparation to stand the best chance of winning the competition - Rob Tarlton, who won last autumn, as well as the runner-up, Thomas Christensen, are both dedicated iRacers.”

    Indeed , great news to see modern F1 involved :)
  5. :O This is awesome. But it will probably require PRO 4.99 to drive. Still, nice that it's coming :)
