Next week, iRacing will deploy the 2021 Season 4 build, which contains a good number of new cars and tracks.
Road racing fans will be excited to welcome the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (992) and the Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO to the online racing platform.
For those who like Oval racing, there will be a new track release, in the form of the Hickory Motor Speedway short track. Last but not least, the Red Bull Ring will now feature the North layout.
Furthermore, Hickory Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway (with both its single and dual pit road layouts), Concord Speedway, Five Flags Speedway, Myrtle Beach Speedway, and The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will join the AI roster.
Also, the Super Late Model, Ford Mustang GT, and Holden ZB Commodore will be unlocked for AI play. On the track side of things, the Australian circuits at Mount Panorama and Phillip Island will join the previously unlocked Oran Park Raceway.
AI feature-wise, iRacing members will now be able to drive with their friends while adding AI drivers in Hosted and League sessions. The AI roster and drivers will be linked to the host of the session, meaning that once the host joins, AI drivers will fill as many available spots as they can. It is therefore recommended to let your friends join first to make sure everyone’s in. Only AI-enabled tracks will be enabled for AI Hosted play, but a new set of filters in the iRacing UI will help keep your selections on track (literally). Human users will be allowed to drive cars that aren’t yet AI-enabled if they so choose.
