iRacing reaching 5 years and 750 million laps
Since launching in 2008, iRacing has not only achieved 45,000 currently active members, but is close to recording three quarters of a billion laps raced.
Development of iRacing began in 2004 with co-founders Dave Kaemmer (Papyrus: Grand Prix Legends, NASCAR 2003 etc), and John Henry. The game officially launched four years later to offer an accurate racing simulation integrated with a complete online service with a sanctioning body, rules, race scheduling and official links with a number of race series. iRacing currently works with series officially-sanctioned by NASCAR, Indy Car, GRAND-AM, Australian V8 Supercars and more. Plus you can still set up your own private leagues and schedules.
