Racing fans rejoice: the latest update for iRacing is finally here. The Season 2 update features an impressive list of new content. Notably, it introduces two familiar faces: the 2016 Audi R18 and Porsche 919 Hybrid. That’s to say nothing of the many fixes, updates, and features.
First teased last autumn, the two Le Mans racers are finally on the scene. Both arrive with the iRacing LeMans Series, running 60-90 minutes every two hours for 12 weeks. Additionally, there’s the iRacing LeMans Endurance Series featuring LMP2 and GTE class racers.
As you may have guessed, the Endurance Series requires a little more dedication. Each session will run for a challenging six hours every two weeks. Only two time slots will be available: Saturday at 7:00 GMT and again at 19:00 GMT. If you’re looking for an endurance racing fix, look no further.
Continuing, players have another new toy in the form of the 2018-spec Dallara IR18. Members who purchased the existing Indy racer in the past seven months will receive a full credit of $11.95. As for the DW12, all members will receive the 2012 car for free.
Season 2 will also feature several new tracks, including The Dirt Track at Charlotte, Limaland Motorsports Park, and a rallycross layout for Sonoma Raceway. Furthermore, the update is host to an updated Pocono Raceway.
