Simraceway McLarens

Simraceway is to racing fans what World of Warcraft is to fantasy geeks. A MMOG designed to rival the likes of Gran Turismo 5 and Forza 4 (but without all the pesky irritation of having to own the right console), it allows you to race against friends or random strangers in an ultra-realistic forum, with races monitored by actual marshals.
What's really exciting is the licensing deals they're striking; certain brands famously resist the lure of the gaming dollar - Porsche's refusal to participate in the Gran Turismo franchise, for example - so Simraceway must have quite some clout to have secured a deal to map the entire McLaren back catalogue: sixty of them, representing every McLaren model ever built. That's astonishing.
There are also deals in development with Bentley, Bugatti, Saleen, Mitsubishi and Volkswagen, while circuits such as Zandvoort, Brno and the Indianapolis Speedway will be available. Click here to get involved.
