iRacing has shared a new video showcasing the upcoming Rookie class Formula Vee. This nimble racer will become available in Season 3, and will be free of charge for all iRacers.
A Formula V is based on a pre-1963 Volkswagen Beetle, utilizing a collection of the stock parts to form a competitive race car around a purpose-built tube frame and racing tires. The VW engine, transmission, front suspension, brakes and wheels are stock or modified stock parts. The chassis is a tube frame design and the body is fiberglass or carbon fiber.
The Formula Vee has been a stepping stone for such racing legends as Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, Keke Rosberg, and Nelson Piquet in their driving careers. Since 1964, the class has crowned an annual champion at the SCCA Runoffs in the United States, while international variants have been prominent in South America, Europe, Australia, and Africa, with many of them still crowning annual champions.
