With Sebring only a few days away, we’re proud to announce that one of the world’s greatest endurance racers has signed up to the Simraceway team.
Double 24 Hours of Le Mans winner and three-time American Le Mans Series champion, Allan McNish is helping us perfect Simraceway’s sports car physics, adding his vast expertise and experience to a team that already contains fellow Scot Dario Franchitti and is still benefitting from Dan Wheldon’s awesome legacy.
There can’t be a better-placed driver in the world than McNish to nail the realism of cars like the one he’ll be driving at Sebring on Saturday, the awesome R18 TDI, and that’s something he got straight to work on upon joining up.
However, as well as helping us ensure we keep Simraceway’s in-car authenticity ahead of the field, Allan will also be playing a central role in our efforts to help out real-world drivers too.
McNish, a central figure in the Jim Russell Future Driver Search, established in 2009 to uncover the world’s best new racers, will be assisting with driver development programs at Simraceway’s real-world racing school, the Simraceway Performance Driving Center, calling on his unrivalled experience to train the students at the Sonoma-based facility.
We feel truly privileged to be able to draw on the knowledge and enthusiasm of one of sports car racing’s true greats and we’ll certainly be rooting for Allan on Saturday as he looks to bring home his fourth 12 Hours of Sebring victory!
