Historic Victorian circuits Sandown Raceway and Winton Motor Raceway will make their virtual debut in the coming months on the iRacing platform.

Sandown and Winton will join Mount Panorama, Phillip Island and Oran Park Circuit as part of an exciting Australian-focused content project.

The popular sim racing platform will also be enabling Supercars for AI play in time for the release of the new circuits.

The announcement comes ahead of the commencement of the 2021 Cash Converters Supercars Eseries, which will begin on Wednesday.

The six-round series is based on the popular iRacing platform and features a $26,500 prize pool for the Pro Gamer portion of the championship. $10,000 will be awarded to the series victor.

The All Stars consists of main game Supercars and Dunlop Super2 drivers, with drivers to race at five famous oval circuits including Charlotte, Pocono, Daytona, Michigan and Bristol.


There will also be an endurance event at Australia’s spiritual home of racing, Bathurst's Mount Panorama.

The Pro Series features elite gamers representing Supercars teams. Drivers will race at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, IndyCar circuits Long Beach and Road America, Mount Panorama and a season-ending race at Phillip Island.

The Melbourne-based Sandown Raceway has been in operation since 1962, and has hosted endurance and sprint events in Supercars.

This year’s Penrite Oil Sandown SuperSprint saw an incredible clean sweep by championship leader Shane van Gisbergen, who is also an experienced online racer.

Winton Motor Raceway has been a mainstay of the Supercars calendar since 1985, with the tight and twisty rural layout providing a unique challenge for Supercars drivers.

Supercars will join an ever-expanding fleet of premier racing classes, such as all three national NASCAR divisions, GT3, and GT4, plus many single-make divisions, as part of iRacing’s AI platform.
