iRacing’s newest cars and tracks, plus an expanded selection of oval track favorites, will highlight the new additions to iRacing AI for 2022 Season 3. In total, eight new cars and three new tracks will be unlocked, with two of each also making their iRacing debuts as part of the new June build.
iRacing AI allows iRacers to compete against fully customizable computer-generated opponents with the world’s greatest cars and tracks. Whether in a single-player race or season or a custom hosted session for a mix of human and AI competitors, iRacing AI ensures that the races you’ve always wanted to run will always have a full grid of competitors for you to race against.
For road racers, iRacing’s new pair of Mercedes-AMG GT3 and GT4 road racers will ship with AI unlocked and immediately join their counterparts in those two classes. They’ll also be joined by the new releases of Japan’s Fuji Speedway and Australia’s Sandown International Raceway as key additions for everything from sports cars to Supercars. The Stock Car Brasil Toyota Corolla and Chevrolet Cruze, which made their iRacing debuts as part of 2022 Season 2, will also make their AI debuts alongside all of the brand new content.
The AI oval selection expands in a big way with the additions of not only the NASCAR Whelen Tour Modified and SK Modified, but also Stafford Motor Speedway. The Connecticut-based half-mile oval has long been a premier host of modified racing, with its Spring Sizzler and Fall Final events attracting some of the biggest names in the sport, and has produced such legends as NASCAR Hall of Famer Mike Stefanik, the Bodine brothers, Richie Evans, and Ted Christopher, the track’s all-time SK Modified feature win leader.
For those who prefer traditional stock cars, both the ARCA Menards Series Chevrolet Impala and Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS Late Model will also join the AI mix. At 370 horsepower, the Late Model is a valuable next step for those looking to progress from the Street Stock, while the 650-horsepower ARCA car is an important starter car for those looking to learn the skills they need to take on the fastest ovals in America.
