The development team at iRacing have confirmed that their PC racing sim will support the HTC Vive VR headset with an update coming in September.

HTC Vive VR headset virtual realityThe update is currently scheduled for release on September 6 although this is subject to change. The update will see native HTC Vive support through “OpenVR” which is Valve's SDK for providing support for VR headsets such as the Vive with SteamVR.

“Interestingly, because OpenVR is also compatible with the Rift, one can set the simulator’s options to use the Rift via either the Oculus SDK or the OpenVR SDK,” said iRacing's Software Engineer Shawn Nash.
