iRacing.com released the Lotus 49.
When building the model iRacing was fortunate to have access to the very Lotus 49 Clark drove to that historic victory in 1967.
The car is currently owned by vintage racer Chris MacAllister of Indianapolis, who has generously offered iRacing complete access to Clark’s car during the precision modeling process. iRacing’s engineers will shortly begin measuring the Lotus 49, with a targeted release for the latter part of 2012.
Hompe & RacinGameShow had a try out, and posted their first videos.
The Lotus 49 was a Formula One racing car designed by Colin Chapman and Maurice Philippe for the 1967 F1 season. It was designed around the Cosworth DFV engine that would power most of the Formula One grid through the 1970s and was the first successful Formula One car to feature the engine as a stressed member.
Jim Clark won on the car’s debut in 1967, and it would also provide him with the last win of his career in 1968. Graham Hill went on to win that year’s title and the car continued winning races until 1970.
