December 4, 2020 - iRacing.com Motorsport Simulations and Dallara Automobili have partnered to introduce the Dallara iR-01, a world-class open-wheel racecar, to iRacing in time for the 2021 Season 1 build this December. The new vehicle, which blends modern technology with a classic grand prix heritage, will eventually culminate in the introduction of its own World Championship series later in 2021.

“Our partnership with Dallara to bring the Dallara iR-01 to iRacing has been unlike any other project we’ve ever undertaken,” said iRacing executive producer Steve Myers. “With a clean sheet in front of us, we challenged ourselves to build the ultimate open-wheel racecar to bring to our users. The result is an exciting blend of the past, present, and future of grand prix racing that is thrilling to drive and produces incredible on-track battles.”

"The collaboration with iRacing is long-standing, we got to know iRacing people more than 10 years ago when we were conceiving our driving simulator and looking for nice graphics while iRacing was looking for experts in the real life of motorsport," said Andrea Pontremoli, Dallara Group CEO & General Manager. "That's why we have enthusiastically welcomed the possibility of collaborating with them on this new project. Motorsport has been in Dallara's DNA since its inception, along with the continuous search for new challenges. It is a way for Dallara to bring our knowledge and skills to the world of professional video games, with particular attention focused on the new generation of gamers and their interests. We gladly ventured into the design of a totally new and innovative car dedicated exclusively to the world of sim racers.”

CHELMSFORD, MA (Nov. 2, 2020) – iRacing.com Motorsport Simulations and Dale Earnhardt Jr. are pleased to announce that, effective immediately, Earnhardt Jr. will officially join iRacing as an executive director and part of the company’s management committee. The NASCAR Hall of Famer, two-time Daytona 500 winner, and two-time NASCAR Xfinity Series champion will have a hand in numerous aspects of iRacing, from partner and community relations to user experience and development of the platform’s stock car offerings.

“We’re elated to officially welcome Dale to the iRacing team as an executive director of the company,” said iRacing owner John Henry. “For more than 20 years, Dale has been a passionate advocate of sim racing whose efforts to improve the product have dramatically shaped our direction as a company and relationships throughout the sport for the better. Through all this time, he’s never been paid a penny for his contributions. After discussions earlier this year, we’ve pursued a mutual interest in having him come on board as an official member of the company, and we look forward to continuing our growth with Dale’s guidance from years to come.”

“I’ve been a sim racer for nearly three decades and a devoted iRacing member since its beginning,” said Earnhardt. “Realizing iRacing’s potential early, its success has always been important to me. Whether it was connecting iRacing with NASCAR in 2008, making other partner introductions, developing content, laser-mapping racecars, Beta testing new technology, it has been a privilege to be a small part of iRacing’s expansion. Even more, it means the world to me to officially become part of the family. I consider Steve Myers, Tony Gardner, and Dave Kaemmer great friends with like passions. I’m excited to work with them on new partnerships and projects to continue iRacing’s meteoric growth.”

“I have been lucky to call Dale a friend for 20 years now, and professionally he has provided me opportunities to reach people and companies I never would have had access to without his help. We are very much a family at iRacing and Dale has been unofficially part of that family for a long time,” said iRacing Executive Vice President and Executive Producer Steve Myers. “To now make him an official part of the company doing what he has really been doing already is not only a positive step for iRacing, but also rewards Dale for his multiple decades of hard work in helping us build our brand and company.”
