iRacing.com - Promo video Ford Falcon V8 Supercar & Phillip Island

iRacing.com has released a promo video of their new car Ford Falcon V8 and their first Australian race circuit Phillip Island.

The Ford Falcon V8 is a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive design and features a five-liter “Boss 302” SVO capable of producing 620 – 650 brake horsepower. The engine is a push rod, two valve design equipped with electronic fuel injection and electronically limited to 7,500 RPM.

Phillip Island is steeped in the history of Australian motor racing. A circuit composed of the island's interior roads was used for the original Australian Grand Prix in 1928 and continued to be used for the race up until 1935. The circuit closed in the late 1970s, but was redeveloped and re-opened in 1989 to host the first international version of the Australian motorcycle Grand Prix. It continues to host the race today and is also a venue for the Superbike World Championship, V8 Supercars and the Australian Drivers' Championship.
