Team Cadillac Racing has partnered with iRacing.com recently to put you behind the virtual wheel of the CTS-V racecar. Members of the iRacing.com community will soon be able to compete with others by racing the Cadillac CTS-V virtual racecar on a vast number of different race tracks.

“Having more than 30,000 virtual racers drive a Cadillac CTS-V Coupe race car on some of the most challenging tracks in the world is great opportunity to demonstrate Cadillac’s world-class performance credentials,” said Cadillac Global Marketing Director Jim Vurpillat. “When they climb in, flip the switch on the 520-horsepower race engine and hear that rumble for the first time, they’ll remember the experience.”

iRacing engineers recently met up with Team Cadillac near Detroit, Michigan to began taking measurements to recreate the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe racecar in a virtual environment. Careful measures have been taken to make the car as realistic as possible. The crew even recorded the CTS-V engine sounds to give a full true to life experience while playing the game online.

iRacing allows members to compete with other drivers in an online series of racing challenges that mirror the actual racing season. The Cadillac CTS-V Coupe will be among an exclusive number of race teams for participants to choose from in the 2012 racing season and will be released this spring.
