One of the exciting iRacing announcements was September 2014’s announcement of Aston Martin coming to the racing service. One of the mentioned cars was the Aston Martin DBR9 GT1, which would be the first car to be released. That release is almost here, with the car planned to be available with the 2015 Season 3 build. Now, we have the final render of the car, which looks quite awesome!
The Aston Martin DBR9 will be the second GT1 car to be released for iRacing, alongside the Chevrolet Corvette C6.R GT1. Many iRacers are looking forward to the sound of the V12 that powers the DBR9 to be recreated in iRacing, myself being one of them. To whet your appetite, here’s an excellent video by Gumbal of the real life DBR9 GT1.
The next build for iRacing brings quite a bit to the simulation. In addition to the Aston Martin DBR9, an updated version of the Gen6 Toyota Camry NASCAR stock car will be released. In addition to that, Five Flags Speedway will also be making its way to iRacing. Fun Fact: in the end of the preview video for Five Flags Speedway, you can get a sound preview of the DBR9 GT1.
