Back in March, iRacing officially announced that a new LMP3 car will be added to its online racing platform in the form of the Ligier JS P320 prototype.

Now the development team shared a new video showcasing some in-game footage of the endurance racer. If all goes as planned, the car is scheduled to be released alongside the 2023 iRacing Season 3 build in June.

Launched in 2020, the Ligier JS P320 is based on the Ligier JS P3 featuring 95% new bodywork, new Ohlins shock absorbers, a new Nissan V8 VK56 engine, a more powerful, adapted cooling system, and optimized aerodynamics.
