How do I set up an AI Season?
To access the iRacing AI Seasons section, just click on “AI Racing” in the navigation bar on the left. This opens the “Seasons” section for AI Racing. Here, you’ll see all of your AI Seasons displayed, click on one of them to view your progress, customize the settings, or start the next event!

To create a new AI Season, click the “Create a Season” button in the top-right corner. A new window will appear that walks you through setting up a new AI Season. Just like an AI Single Race, you will follow many of the same steps such as selecting your car, weather, session types, AI opponent roster, track options, track conditions, and time of day. The biggest difference between setting up an AI Single Race and an AI Season is that you will be able to select multiple tracks – one for each event in the AI Season, and that the options you select may be further customized for each event in the AI Season!
Each track added is a single event in the AI Season, and features its own customization menus for race sessions, weather, track options, track conditions, and time of day. Each of these options allows you to configure each event so that they can be unique within the AI Season, instead of all having the same race parameters. For instance, you could run your first event, a 100 lap race at Daytona International Speedway – Oval on a windy day at high-noon, and then run your second event, a two hour race at Daytona International Speedway – Oval on a hot Summer’s night!

Finally, you have the opportunity to set your Championship Points system for the AI Season. Multiple real-world point systems are available for you to select, or create a custom system of your own design.
Once you’ve set up your AI Season, hit the green “Save” button. This will then open your AI Season event for review, and you can click “Race” to begin your pursuit of the championship!
