iRacing hosts an incredible range of special events every single year on their popular sim racing platform. These events, mostly separate from their official weekly series, cover a wide range of disciplines and include virtual recreations of some of the most prestigious races in history.
Have you ever dreamed of winning the Indianapolis 500? How about the Bathurst 1000? Have you and your friends ever wished to tackle the Nurburgring 24 Hour? iRacing allows you to compete in virtual editions of these races, and much, much more.
