Team Cadillac Racing partners with iRacing.com to put virtual racers behind the wheels of the Team’s CTS-Vs on a variety of tracks
The virtual racecar, based on the CTS-V coupe driven by Johnny O’Connell and Andy Pilgrim, above, will be designed and based on the actual car by iRacing.com engineers. They started the project by visiting the Team at Pratt & Miller Engineering to begin creating the digital version of the racecar. Precise measurements of the competition cars will be made to ensure authenticity. They’ll also record the sounds of the Cadillac engine to provide an added dimension to the user experience.
The racing version of the 2011 CTS-V Coupe took two Firsts last year, with O’Connell driving in its return to competition in the Pirelli World Challenge GTS Series, below.
“This is great news for iRacing and the online racing community,” said Tony Gardner, president of iRacing.com. “The performance of the real-world Cadillac CTS-V racecar is truly astonishing. I’m sure iRacers around the world will be eager to get their hands on our digital version of this world-class machine.”
