Simraceway driver Dario Franchitti wins third straight Indy 500 crown

28 05 2012

Great excitement at a so rare achievement.

We are pleased to announce that Simraceway performance driver Dario Franchitti has yet again won the prestigious Indianapolis 500 race.

It was all the more poignant a moment when before accepting the trophy, he donned a pair of white cardboard sunglasses — a tribute to longtime friend, teammate, competitor and fellow Indianapolis 500 champion Dan Wheldon.

“Now my face on the Borg-Warner Trophy will be on either side of Dan’s,” Franchitti said of the 2011 race winner who died in October from injuries suffered in racing accident.

Franchitti became the seventh member of the three-time Indianapolis 500 winners club, holding off charges from Target Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Scott Dixon, Takuma Sato and Tony Kanaan over the final five laps following a restart.

This is also a great moment for the Simraceway project with Dario being such a key part and the announcement of the official Indycar game appearing with Dario within the Simraceway environment soon.

AT New Media are excited to be part of this exciting project and look forward to continuing to see its development over the coming months.
