With the launch of iRacing’s dirt-racing expansion just a few days away, the team has put together a launch trailer showing off all the content that will be available for the subscription-based racer. Players will be able to experience the “World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series” when the update arrives on March 29. If this trailer is anything to go on, the quality looks to be on par with the regular track-based racing iRacing fans are more familiar with.
The “World of Outlaws” cup update will bring the Eldora Speedway oval circuit and official sprint cars used in the championship. Racing looks to be frantic on the dirt track and will offer a vastly different challenge to drivers used to driving on tarmac ovals. You’ll be finding yourself sliding around on the edge of control whilst also trying to master the unique vehicles that compete in this type of racing.
The level of quality expected from iRacing is also shown off in the trailer, with multiple camera angles and a fully modeled interior being present on the sprint cars. Kick-up residue from the dirt surface is also seen as the racers take on Eldora. This will be the first in many content updates related to dirt driving, with upcoming tracks promised alongside Late Model and Rallycross competitors.
The exact launch date of this future upcoming content isn’t quite yet known but for now, the Sprint Car Series will offer a good introduction to the world of dirt driving for iRacing subscribers. Get ready to hit the track this Wednesday!
