Season 4 Patch 3 Changelog:

iRacing UI:

Create a Race

  • Resolved an issue where clicking the “Back” button was not returning to the previous screen.

Teams

  • A “Register” button has been added to the Registered Teams table of the Team Registration window for an event, so you can Register directly from there.
  • Resolved an issue where the “Purchase” button was not being displayed when registering for a Team that has selected a car to drive that you do not own.
  • You can now Spectate for any team you are a part of via the split “Register/Watch” button in both the Team Registration and Team Sessions screens. This is a different role than joining as “Crew” for your team and will not allow you to spot for your team. You should only register as this role if you want to spectate the session and not have the full functionality that being a “crew” member of the team entails.
