iRacing | Check Out The Awesome NASCAR '87 iRacing Trailer

iRacing surprised many of us when they announced their intentions to bring some historic NASCAR racing to the simulation - and now we get our first opportunity to see these epic looking cars in action out on the circuit.

Of course, iRacing enjoys the unique position of having a very close relationship with the governing body of NASCAR competition, already featuring several modern day models from the various official NASCAR sanctioned racing series.

Having recently recreated the now near derelict North Wilkesboro Raceway for the simulation (host to the former Winston Cup Series), the online racing service have gone one better as they have not one, but two historic NASCAR machines heading to the simulation.

Bringing to life the iconic 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and Ford Thunderbird, both expected to release this coming June, you can grab your first opportunity to see the cars in action on the new trailer below:

I can see all the older sim racers abandoning the current Cup car for these great cars.Racing at Talladega & Daytona with no restrictor plates will be interesting.
What speeds will they reach? I'm not a NASCAR fan at all but I imagine the carnage could be very fun :D

This is what makes iracing appealing to me. Just wish the platform was more affordable. But maybe when things (Hopefully)get back to normal a bit I'll be able to try it out for this combo & maybe some Indycar.
Still really cool to see them come out with these classics.

Opinion:

2008 iRacing gives you a fraction of other sims (ACC or AMS2 continuous improvements as a contrast example).

The only exception in iRacing is a unique way of carcinoma reproduction of the content and the money asked.

How the hell did they get the Coors sponsorship into this game?
There are tons of alcohol logos in iRacing...any trackside banner that had an alcohol logo when it was scanned, is in the game (lots of Budweiser banners, for example). I don't know how they swing it, but it's so prevalent that I didn't even notice the Coors logo that you mentioned.

Papyrus earned their stars with retro-racing: Grand Prix Legends and NASCAR Legends (I worked on both). I'm delighted to see them (now reconstituted as iRacing) return to their roots. A recent poll showed most sim racers actually prefer historic tracks. Me too. I know they can't laser scan Riverside or Bridgehampton (both venues visited by NASCAR back in the heyday of Grand Nationals) but I know a modder who can recreate tracks like that with about 99.99% accuracy. His initials are KL.

Its funny to see the videos mix of RL Nascar and iRacing sequences.:thumbsup:
But its pretty easy to see which is which.
And its also easy to see that the way iRacings cars get airborne isnt realistic at all.:rolleyes:
But as said it looks fun.

I have no real interest in oval racing but these cars might also actually be fun on road courses, too.

Not sure about not realistic at all..... looks pretty good to me, if you compare to something like this.........
As you can see in my post Im refering to the video.
Check as example the iRacing car running backwards at about 80kmH :) and then suddenly does begin flying.

ByTheWay: I was not saying that NO cars in RL Nascar EVER get airborne :whistling:
