Announce a couple of days ago, iRacing has a formal agreement with Renault to bring 2 of there single seaters to the PC based simulator. The 2 single seaters in question are the Formula Renault 2.0 and the ever popular Formula Renault 3.5.
In a statement by Executive Vice-President and Executive Producer, Steve Myres said that, "It is great to partner with Renault to bring both the Formula Renault 2.0 and 3.5 to iRacing." Steve then follows on to say" We have been looking to round out the open wheel racing options on iRacing for some time now and these two cars fit the bill perfectly. Just like in the real world you will see iRacers progress through these series on their way to the top series in the sim racing world – the iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series where drivers compete for more the $10,000 in cash and prizes."
The addition to the cars will make is easier to have a clear root to get to the top of the single seater ladder in iRacing, by starting at the Skip Barber to all the way to the top of the tree with the soon to be released McLaren Honda MP4-30. Single seater fans on the strong 60,000 iRacers on the service will be looking forward to the 2 new cars coming soon iRacing has already began the process on adding the Formula Renault 2.0 to the roster of cars on the service, with CAD data that has been collected and design process underway.
