iRacing today announced they have reached a partnership with the famous Italian sports car manufacturer Ferrari. The very first result of the partnership will see the Ferrari 488 GTE, as raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, recreated in a virtual form for the well respected PC racing sim.
“This is a landmark moment for iRacing and online racing,” says Steve Myers, Executive Vice President and Executive Producer for iRacing.com. “Ferrari is synonymous with world championship caliber race cars and high performance automobiles. The Prancing Horse logo famously inspires passion among racing and automotive aficionados everywhere. iRacers are also passionate about online racing and I have no doubt they will be thrilled at the prospects of racing the 488 GTE and other Ferraris in the future.”
The Ferrari 488 will join iRacing’s ever growing roster of cars which now stands at over 50 examples covering various classes such as open wheel, sedan, sports and stock cars.
