iRacing have confirmed they are developing the Ford and Holden current generation Australian Supercars for the simulation.
An immensely popular series across the world, the Australian Supercar championship has been strangely absent from modern racing simulations in recent years - something iRacing are about to finally put right once and for all.
The online racing simulation has a wide variety of different classifications of cars already available for players to purchase, however news that the 2019 specification Ford Mustang and Holden Commodore ZB are in development and heading to the simulation in the near future should generate quite a bit of excitement for fans of the popular racing sim.
Australian Supercars aren't entirely new to iRacing players, the simulation having already released older specification cars in the form of the Ford Falcon FG and Holden Commodore VF - but moving to the latest regulations and models is certainly a surprising and positive move from the American development team.
“Australian iRacers are some of the most passionate and talented simracers we’ve ever seen,” said iRacing.com Motorsport Simulations executive producer Steve Myers. “We’re always happy to support our community Down Under, and adding the current generation of Supercars was a no-brainer. We can’t wait for the new cars to debut in next year’s Gfinity Supercars Eseries, and for the rest of the world to learn what we already know about these cars: they’re absolute beasts on the track.”iRacing have yet to give fans a firm release date for these new machines, however both cars are expected to be made available in the simulation sometime early in the near year, ready for use in the next season of online eSport competition within the title.
