Vintage Perfection: The Italia Racing Team Events
In the vaste world of simracing everyone can easily find his sweet spot, whether for a quick race or for more deep and engaging events. Take both this experiences, add a great passion for the history of racing and a maniacal care for details and you’ll have what you can find out on Italia Racing Team’s racing platform.
Created by a group of longtime active simracers, Italia Racing Team provides a wide range of Assetto Corsa events, from weekly “For Fun” races alternating open wheel and street cars (set on two 20 mins + 1 lap races, the second one with inverted starting grid) to championships of 5-6 races each, and also 100% events on a real race lenght basis, with qualifies on Saturday and race on Sunday. Every event also comes with live streaming and commentaries on IRT’s YouTube channel.
“Italia Racing Team’s goal is to provide a space for passionate and fast, but above all fair and respectful of opponents on and off the track drivers”, says the founder Pierluigi Italia. “We concentrate our efforts on historical accuracy of the races, trying to match as much as possible the real counterpart of car performances, track conditions and even the progress of the events.”
Focusing especially on vintage races, recreating full events of the Golden Age of racing and also providing specific mods, Italia Racing Team guarantees an immersive experience of racing: not only and not necessarily for hard simmers though, since the passion on recreating the events goes along with mutual comparison and support between members on a large and well organized Discord channel, with specific chat rooms and practicing servers.
On this premises, IRT organizes its two leading events with open wheels and covered wheels. The first is the “History of Formula 1” championship, which covers all the decades and the mechanical and technical evolution of all the cars over the years since 1950 to 2000, expanding day by day the range of cars and tracks involved; the second is the famous 1995 DTM championship, where the German cars were threatened by the Italian Alfa Romeo, involved in amazing wheel to wheel challenges.
Counting on a community of more than 100 drivers – although it’s an Italian language-based platform, it also hosts some non-Italian racers – IRT is offering a new, interesting and also challenging and somewhat unique racing experience. If you’re looking for vintage racing at its perfection, it’s not to be missed.
