SEE WHAT’S NEW THIS SEASON
One of the automotive industry’s premier brands steps into the future with the Porsche Mission R, Porsche’s first all-electric GT racing car and the first-ever electric car to come to iRacing. Designed to match the established Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car in terms of performance, the Mission R generates more than 800 kilowatts of power from its dual electric motors, the car accelerates from 0-100 kilometers per hour (0-60 mph) in under 2.5 seconds. And in perhaps its most relevant innovation of all to the sim racing world, the Mission R’s self-contained, monocoque-type driver cell can be used outside of the car as a simulator—giving drivers an opportunity to test in the virtual world in the same environment they’ll utilize in the real one.

For more than 30 years, Rudskogen Motorsenter has served as Norway’s oldest asphalt racetrack. Opened in May 1990, the track sits in an ideal spot for racing: not only does its forest terrain provide a scenic backdrop and ideal variation in elevation (nearly 140 feet), but the track’s southern location also enables it to stay open for driving experiences for as long as possible each year. From the Porsche Carrera Cup to Gatebil, it’s one of Scandinavia’s most prominent hosts of professional racing events.
After two decades in operation, the track received a redesign from world-renowned circuit designer Hermann Tilke. The resulting 2.022-mile (3.254-km), 14-turn circuit is in use not only for professional racing and driving events, but also for driver training and track days, and includes Tilke’s signature mix of long straightaways and tight, technical sections. With an extended fleet of both Porsche and Mercedes GT vehicles, it’s an ideal training ground to gain experience in competitive sports cars of all types.
NEW DIRT TRACK
Wheatland, Missouri, USA
Wheatland, Missouri’s Lucas Oil Speedway is a motorsport playground unlike almost any other in America; from drag boats to off-road racing, the complex has it all. But none of that would’ve been possible without the opening of Wheatland Raceway as a 3/8 mile dirt oval located in a former agricultural field in 2001. Three years later, Lucas Oil purchased the facility and rebuilt it, renovating both the track and its surrounding amenities to become one of the premier facilities in the country.
Known as “The Diamond of Race Tracks,” the centerpiece clay-surface dirt oval remains unchanged in length from its original opening. With VIP luxury suites and a giant HD screen on site, fans attending races at Lucas Oil Speedway are treated to an on-site experience unlike most other dirt tracks in the nation. Hosting both national and weekly local events, only the best sprint car, late model, midget, and modified talent in the country is able to say they’ve taken the checkered flag in Wheatland.
NEW ROAD TRACK
Germany’s Motorsport Arena Oschersleben became the fourth permanent racing facility to open in Germany when its doors first opened in 1997. A longtime host of FIA GT, DTM, and international touring car events, it will welcome the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series for the first time in 2023, and currently serves as the host of the FIM Sidecar World Championship for motorcycles.
The circuit clocks in at 2.297 miles (3.696 km) and gets going with a lengthy frontstretch before a hard left turn leads into the sweeping right-hand Hotel corner. The hard braking before Turn 1 can often cause incidents between drivers at the start of races, so extra care is required to get the best possible start.
Highlights include the re-scanned Indy Oval config, graphics refreshes for the Lotus 79 and Arca Menards Chevrolet Impala!
