iRacing have again shared an image of the upcoming Dallara P217 LMP2 machine set to join the simulation in the near future.


Having initially teased some early renderings of the latest high profile licence agreement for the studio, iRacing have gone one better this time around, sharing with the community a nice gameplay shot of the endurance prototype at what appears to be the Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit within the simulation.

iRacing teased the new car back on July 20th by way of a short Twitter post, and the American studio seem to be making rather impressive progress with the car since that initial reveal, with what no appears to be a working model within the game.

The P217 LMP2 machine made it's debut for the 2017 racing season, and since then has gone on to take a number of race victories in the hands of multiple teams, although as of 2020 the popularity of the brand has fallen, with Oreca taking up the mantle of 'must have' LMP 2 machinery in the various classes hosting these cars throughout the world.


iRacing is available now, and is exclusive to PC.

Kinda bittersweet news since, even though a more modern LMP2 would be welcome, I really like the HPD, but just starting driving it this year when it might be on its way out :( ...hoping it's repurposed for another series somehow.

The car has been on iRacing since 2011. It was loooooong overdue for a replacement. If iRacing does want to keep it out of Legacy content, add it to the Fanatec GT Challenge, and make it an ALMS revival series.

I say move it to IMSA Sportscar. I'd rather have the HPD than the C7 DP.
