iRacing 2017 Season 2 Patch 1 Deployed

iRacing has released the 2017 Season 2 Patch 1 update for their online racing simulator. This new update addresses a list of issues that were still unresolved and adds some improvements to the particle behavior and tire degradation. Check out the full changelog for more details.

Some iRacing members might be disappointed that there is no Dirt related content released with this update. For those who missed it, iRacing’s Executive Vice President and Executive Producer Steve Myers has confirmed that the first Dirt based content for iRacing will most likely be out by March 29th.
