We announced Thursday that we’ve signed up three-time IndyCar Series Champion Dario Franchitti to work with Dan Wheldon on making Simraceway the most authentic racing game on the market.
In fact Franchitti has been working with Simraceway for the past two years and, during this time, we’ve been lucky enough to get up-close-and-personal with the IndyCar great. So with Franchitti heading into another final-race decider with Will Power this weekend, we wanted to share our behind-the-scenes snaps of last season’s exciting climax.
