Indy Pro 2000 And US F2000 Are Coming To iRacing In June
When yesterday, iRacing Tweeted that the Indy Pro 2000 And US F2000 would become available later this year, allot of iRacing members immediately were thinking April Fools day.
However, Marketing Manager at iRacing.com, Greg West now confirmed that both the Indy Pro 2000 And US F2000 cars have been scheduled for a June 2020 release.
- The Indy Pro 2000 will replace the former Pro Mazda car at the C-class license level open setup series.
- The US F2000 will be used in the fixed setup Formula Sprint races (D-class license) replacing the Dallara F3 which will stay active in its own C-class license competition.
Last but not least, Greg also hints that later on some new short ovals will be added to the racing service to better replicate the real-world Road to Indy ladder.
The first in-game previews (or renders) will be revealed later this week.
Greg West Quote:
Utilizing the same chassis, the Tatuus USF17 and Tatuus PM18 represent the first two steps in the Road to Indy program. After conquering the USF17 in US F2000 action, drivers get to play with 100 more horsepower, more aerodynamic options, and larger tires with the PM18 in Indy Pro 2000.
Upon release, the US F2000 will be used as a more appropriate car in the fixed setup Formula Sprint races at the D-class license level, where it will replace the Dallara F3. The Dallara F3 will remain in its own series at the C-class license level.
Upon release, the Indy Pro 2000 will replace the former Pro Mazda car at the C-class license level open setup series. The Pro Mazda will be renamed as a “Legacy” car and removed from official racing. Any user who purchased the Pro Mazda within the last two years will receive the Indy Pro 2000 for free!
Finally, future seasons at both levels will see the addition of a couple of short ovals run in real life to more closely replicate the real-world Road to Indy ladder. (looking at you IRP)
Stay tuned for images later this week!
