Steve Myers, Executive Vice President and Executive Producer at iRacing.com commented: “We’re proud to have the SRO Motorsports Group as the first European-based racing series promoter in a group of iRacing partners that includes NASCAR, IndyCar and V8 Supercars. This partnership began with our initial introduction at September’s iRacing.com Nurburgring 1000 and quickly developed into a conversation on how iRacing and SRO could work together.
“The fact that over 1500 iRacers participated in our recent endurance event attests to GT racing’s popularity on the iRacing service. We look forward to working with SRO in developing innovative methods of engaging fans of GT racing the world over.”
