COTA will be hosting its third Formula One Grand Prix on Sunday, so we’ve given our virtual version a spruce up, adding three brand new configurations and the ability to drive at night. Step into the racing shoes of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg this weekend and take on the Texas track in our Online Racing World.
Simraceway Online Racing World’s Zandvoort circuit is the latest track to have been upgraded to provide an even better virtual racing experience, including day-night-day transitions and the additions of reverse and short layouts. To find out more, head to its blog.
You’d expect Sonoma Raceway to feature prominently in Simraceway’s racing sim–and you’d be right! We’ve just added an 18th layout, the WTCC layout, to the configurations available for players to race on. And it’s all free! Find out more at Simraceway Online Racing World.
So we run a karting facility based next to one of the most renowned road courses in the U.S.? Well it would be rude not to, wouldn’t it! Head to our Facebook page to view a lap of Sonoma Raceway in a kart!
And if you want to try it for yourself, head to our free-to-play sim, Simraceway Online Racing World.
First used for racing in 1926, Brands Hatch was transformed into a purpose-built motor racing circuit in 1950. In 1964 it hosted its first British Grand Prix—an event it would go on to share with Silverstone until 1986. Now you can experience it on your PC absolutely free-of-charge at Simraceway’s Online Racing World. Click here to find out more on our ORW blog.
SKUSA headed back to Sonoma in style last weekend with the Simraceway Performance Karting Center hosting Round 4 of the California ProKart Challenge. With over 130 entrants, including 25 S1 Class drivers, and hundreds more watching, two beautiful Californian days saw a host of fiercely-fought, exciting contests. Read on to find out more!
Simraceway Performance Driving Center instructor Matt Bell is one of a select group: a driver who has taken on Circuit of The Americas twice. In fact, in March of this year the Californian got up-close-and-personal with the Austin circuit twice in one day—once in a Chevrolet Camaro SS GS.R, and once in an Audi R8 LMS.
So who better than the expert GT racer, who has placed second in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series Driver’s Championship (GS Class) two years in a row, to guide us through a lap of COTA in our R8 LMS ultra–as Simraceway players battle to record the quickest times with that same car/track combo and qualify for the 50th Sunday Race-Off?
Read on to benefit from his video and guide, which is also available to download as a PDF.
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.
Read on to find out more about COTA’s successful first twelve months–in both the virtual and real worlds!
A bright and sunny morning sees Dennis Palatov and his Palatov Motorsport team join us at Infineon Raceway, home of the Simraceway Performance Driving Center, for a shakedown session of his exciting new D4 track/race car. With motoring journalists Leo Parente and Brian Makse also in attendance, we’re keen to see how the Simraceway D4 compares to the real-life track weapon, so we can give you the most realistic racing experience possible.
“I have the all-time track record at Mid-Ohio—I think it was a 1:03:7.” It was at this point of my conversation with IndyCar, sportscar, Aussie V8 and rally driver extraordinaire, Simon Pagenaud, that I fell off my chair.
The 27-year-old Indianapolis-based Frenchman loves to go fast and in the last 12 months he has taken every available opportunity to prove it. Pagenaud has driven for the factory Peugeot squad in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup, he’s been ‘super sub’ in the IndyCar Series, he’s been a factory Honda driver in the Continental Tire Series for touring cars and he’s even found time to rally a Citroen C2!
That blistering lap time at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course was set in a 2007 Champ Car (above) described simply by Pagenaud as “fantastic” with a “combination of power and grip that made that track layout really fun.”
