Circuit of The Americas Comes Full Circle

Simraceway and Circuit of The Americas have always enjoyed a close relationship–we even managed to launch our version of the course three weeks before its real gates swung open–so, on the eve of its second US GP, we’re naturally delighted that the first purpose-built Grand Prix facility in the U.S. has been such a hit in its first year.

Allan McNish Claims his First WEC Title!

It feels like we’re always congratulating Simraceway pro driver Allan McNish. But that’s mainly because he always seems to be winning things!


The year opened with him claiming the oldest trophy in British motor racing, the RAC Tourist Trophy, at Silverstone. Then he took his third 24 Hours of Le Mans win. Now, thanks to securing third place at Shanghai alongside teammates Tom Kristensen and Loïc Duval, the uber-talented Scot has got his hands on his very first FIA World Endurance Championship.


We received a kind note from Allan yesterday, talking of the “warm feeling” his first world championship title had brought him. In truth, it simply couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. Congrats Allan, from everybody at Simraceway!

Radio Le Mans and Simraceway Present the 80th 24 Hours of Le Mans

We’re especially excited about this weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, not only because it marks the 80th anniversary of the famous endurance race, but also because we’ll be doing our bit to get racing fans closer to the action thanks to Simraceway’s sponsorship of Radio Le Mans’ live coverage.

Radio Le Mans, featuring John Hindhaugh–the voice of sports car racing–is the official English language broadcaster at the Circuit de la Sarthe and some 90,000 fans are expected to tune into 91.2 FM during the action, relying on John and the team to keep them fully up-to-speed with events both on and off the track.

For those not fortunate enough to attend the race, meanwhile, the station’s coverage is also available online at and can be heard live in the US on Sirius and XM Satellite Radio.

As an official partner, Simraceway will also be broadcasting the coverage on its Livestream channel, so make sure to tune in to hear the best of the action.
