This video explores the intricate planning and design that transformed the heart of Chicago into a 2.2-mile race track for NASCAR’s Next Gen cars. It comes from a combination of cutting-edge technology, historical motorsport legacy, and urban planning to create this unique racing experience. From the car itself to the layout and surface of the streets, everything works together to make the event possible. There’s another key development that helped make it possible as well. Sim racing, specifically iRacing who created a digital twin of the course to design and test the conditions, ensuring the best possible layout for both racers and spectators. Then Chicago made real-world modifications to the streets to address safety, performance, and spectator experience, based on data from virtual races.
