iRacing is pleased to announce the upcoming addition of the Formula Vee, one of the world’s most enduring grassroots and entry-level open-wheel race cars. When released later this year, the car will make its debut as a free Rookie class vehicle, available for immediate use by all iRacers.
Based on a pre-1963 Volkswagen Beetle, the Formula Vee has been a stepping stone for such racing legends as Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, Keke Rosberg, and Nelson Piquet in their driving careers. Since 1964, the class has crowned an annual champion at the SCCA Runoffs in the United States, while international variants have been prominent in South America, Europe, Australia, and Africa, with many of them still crowning annual champions.
The Formula Vee is slated for release on iRacing in June. For more information on iRacing and for special offers, visit www.iracing.com.
