iRacing completes one billion laps

iRacing has completed the one billionth lap of competition last week.

Tony Gardner wrote, “For the sake of discussion, if the average lap takes one minute that is over 16.5 million hours of driving. A lot of laps I’m sure for each and everyone of us of fun, joy, excitement, challenge, jubilation, frustration, disappointment, anger and even some tedious laps practicing and putting your time in. I hope most of the laps were as fun as we have had building the sim. Here is to another billion laps! Cheers! A sincere thanks for choosing iRacing. Next week we will analyze the database to see if we can nail down who did the big lap and give out some prizes and what not. Also will be sending out a press release Monday.

Breakdown to get an idea. Keep in mind when we launched we only had official racing, testing and time trialing. Open practice and hosted came well after so now on a yearly basis these percentages are quite a bit different. We actually have well over a million laps on alpha and laps in other environments as well but those not included in member count. Offline testing is also not included. Other unofficial I believe is non official racing like Carb cup, etc With testing who knows, we might be at 1.5 billion laps,.
