iRacing 2021 Season 1 Update Tweaks Vehicles, New AI Circuits, and More

iRacing 2021
iRacing 2021 steam Motorsport Simulations, developer of iRacing , just released a new update that fixes tons of bugs and tweaks the mechanics of vehicles. Some international and circuit tracks now have AI support, which makes it more interesting if you like going up against AI opponents.

The Dallara IR18 rev limit has been increased to 12,300 RPMs while players are at Superspeedways, but at the same time, its variant the Dallara P217’s engine power has been reduced to match the 2021 equivalent.

iRACING UI: (5.05.03)

Hosted Sessions

  • Fixed an issue where Hosted Sessions could fail to be displayed after canceling a pending Hosted Session.

3D Car Viewer

  • Fixed an issue where the iRacing UI could fail to see paint file updates in folders with more than one space in the folder name, such as the "dirtsprint winged 305" folder.
  • Fixed an issue where refreshing the iRacing UI (Ctrl+R) while viewing the 3D Car Viewer could create a bad state.
    • Remember, the 3D Car Viewer should automatically update with any changes made to the paint folders; no need to refresh!
