Simraceway - New Car–McLaren MP4-29

McLaren unveiled its 2014 Formula One World Championship challenger, the MP4-29, at its Woking headquarters as a wind of change swept through the sport. And with 2013 Formula Renault 3.5 Series champion Kevin Magnussen replacing Sergio Perez as Jenson Button’s teammate, there was more than just a new car for the British team to get used to.


Read on to find out more or discover it for yourself by purchasing it or taking it for a free, weekend-long test drive in-game.

The biggest change in Formula One for decades, the replacement of normally-aspirated engines—a staple in the series for a quarter of a century—with 1.6-liter V6 turbocharged units, meant the MP4-29 would be McLaren’s first turbo-powered F1 car since the peerless MP4/4 in 1988. The team’s new Mercedes PU106A Hybrid engine would have a lot to live up to.




 Having parted company with its long-time main sponsor, McLaren sent their new car into action bedecked in a new, predominantly silver, livery—and it began the season promisingly. Also distinguishable from its predecessors thanks to its stooping nose—one of a number of design alterations required by the summer’s far-reaching rule revisions—it notched impressive second and third places at the Australian Grand Prix.

To take McLaren’s all-new Formula One racer onto the track, download the MP4-29 right now onSimraceway.

 

Note: Due to a last-minute hitch, the MP4-29 will initially ship with seven gears. Rest assured, we are working on this issue and will provide a free-to-download car update in due course.

Sadly Simraceway is DX9 technology and that does limit the quality of the game play. I have been with them for over 2 1/2 years, but I have seen a real drop off in the on hand techs. There used to be srwTechs on hand 24/7, but that is no longer true. I hope they can get better as time goes because they are being left behind by some of the other and newer games.

TP needs some updating. It is not very intuitive for new users. Instructions are hard to follow at times. Support response is in need of someone's dedication. Having individual paints is a real attraction within iRacing. This needs to be done better or replaced! ​Interesting that without member support there would be no answers or help. It's a shame, the program is so popular not to have good management.

Thanks!

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?
