The wait is over, almost. The long-awaited Nürburgring will be available on iRacing tomorrow. Also set for release is the McLaren-Honda MP4-30 – complete with a fully-functional ERS (Energy Recovery System) and DRS (Drag Reduction System), and another new track, North Carolina's 4/10-mile Southern National Motorsports Park.

In this video, iRacing's Co-founder and CEO Dave Kaemmer talks about his history with the Nurburgring – how it inspired him to create Grand Prix Legends almost 20 years ago, how the tracks were built back then compared to now, and how much sim racing technology has changed since then. And what actually goes into creating a virtual Nurburgring? Find out here:
