iRacing.com – Gen6 Stock Cars Renders

iRacing has released a new render, showing the new NASCAR Sprint CUP Gen6 stock car that will soon join the online racing simulation.

The render shows both the Chevrolet & Ford version of the new Gen6 that made its NASCAR Sprint Cup racing debut at Daytona last night.

With two of the three manufacturers in NASCAR signed up, iRacing is also pushing to sign Toyota to complete their virtual NASCAR lineup.

To put the new cars to good use, iRacing is launching the World Tour NASCAR iRacing 2013 Series, a 36-race event series that follows the real-life NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule.

    I wonder how long until Toyota is on board. Trucks could do with an update too.

    BTCC Civic please! :)

    That Chevy looks awesome! The Ford looks good as well but I dont see it as a stockcar, fwd on the streets. The Toyota, sorry that thing has one ugly face…yuk.

    Nobody would drive those cars.

    I think those cars will be great on road courses it’s basically a real stock car!

    These cars aren’t any more stock now than last year’s. The chassis underneath is almost identical, mostly just setup limits have changed. They look much better, but are still silhouette racers at heart like V8SC or DTM.

    Looks like we may get the Kia next season. Good enough for my FWD fix :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/mazda.mps.1 Mazda Mps

    I very much hope so.

  • Matt Orr

    Will the Kia shut you up about FWD crap box racing? ;)

  • Matt Orr

    Dallara was initially delayed because there were supposed to be aero packages. Now the series is busy imploding on itself because the idiots that be can’t let open wheel racing in the US succeed. It’s cloudy. Which is sad, because people would certainly drive it.

    F1 car… don’t count on it.

  • Matt Orr

    The top of the line Fusion is AWD.

    Between the Kia and Civic, that’ll pretty much do, yeah. :)

    I’d actually love to see 4 BTCC cars, two each RWD and FWD. Something like the Cruze or MG, and the Audi.

    Soon.

    The Indy Car will be a while, they have a license but no real incentive to do anything with it due to the series politics and the fact that there are aero packages on the way.

    I doubt they’ll do another F1 car for a while, it’ll cost a hell of a lot to license one and going by the trouble they’ve had with the current car they’re not easy to build either. I’d say updating the stock cars is the most important thing just because of the huge amount of US members and the fact they have a proper NASCAR partnership.

    They haven’t scanned it yet, so hopefully they’ll get round to it sometime in the BTCC season. I’d expect they’ll want to release it with the BMW and a British track or two. RUF is the next car being worked on, so maybe by the end of the year. Just wait for next season and drive the Kia, should do the job until we get the Civic.

    Like it despite I am not that much of a NASCAR Fan. I just think it is a bit overdone to have a CoT-Chevy, Nationwide-Chevy AND the Gen6-Chevy alongside another Gen6-Ford (which actually is the same car) whilst we only have one a piece in GT1, GT2 and GT3 aswell as a single P2-car. I’d prefer some Lola-P1 or a bit more variety in GT-classes because that is what they are about… intensive fight of different concepts like rear-engine Porsches vs. Mid-engined supercars and Front-engined monsters like a Viper :).

  • Anonymous

    Wow now that really relates to Nascar now doesnt it!! FYI, front wheel drive with rear traction on demand, nothing more.

    Didn’t they say in the forums that they don’t have/lost the licence for the DW12?

  • http://twitter.com/hsv455 Jann Dircks

    Road racers are getting a lot of stuff in the next few months/years. After those Oval cars and the two missing Sprint Cup tracks there’s not much left to do on the oval side :)

    Yep, found it. Tony Gardner wrote: “We don’t have a license ($$$) to it at this point for starters. We have a license for the car we have.”

  • http://twitter.com/hsv455 Jann Dircks

    Nope, I was wrong^^ Sean Siff corrected his statement: “We have a license for the Dallara we are running currently, and for the DW-12. We have not decided when the car will be moved into production though.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/marcel.penzke Marcel Penzkofer

    Fair point on oval content ;). Haven’t considered that point of view. If there really isn’t much more to come they should round up the package with the Toyota Camry maybe :).

    And then give us some more racecars of course :D.

    We are getting a second GT2 and GT3 car.

    Hard to argue with participation, though. These top level NASCAR series get between 500-1500 drivers per week average. Of the cars you mentioned, the GT3 is pretty popular (500-some/wk) just like any new car, beyond that the best is the P2 with fixed setup at just 290.

    As a road driver, I can’t think of a fair reason to begrudge the NASCAR efforts. That’s not even mentioning that NASCAR is basically the only series which actually gives iRacing any cash.

  • ml4144%stu.aii.edu

    I heard that the Kia will be free? Is that true? If so that’ll be good but otherwise, I think they’re wasting their time. That series won’t be popular. Even the V8 Supercars and Radicals have participation trouble, and those are much more fun to drive. The radical especially, easy to drive, tons of fun, superfast, but the participation isn’t great. It sucks but apparently most of iracing’s members have no taste

  • Anonymous

    Speak for yourself, I’d much rather race a FWD touring car than the cars you’ve listed. The most fun races I’ve ever had were in FWD touring cars.

    Porsche is never gonna happen whilst they are in bed with EA. That said, iRacing are working on the RUF RT12R.

    “We are getting a second GT2 and GT3 car.”

    In 2014 if we are lucky.

  • Guest

    Aren’t you the one who complains about participation? What do you want from iR, participation or more series? Or do you want only to troll and complain?

  • Anonymous

    It was assumed for a bit the Kia might have been a similar deal as the Caddy, but I’m not so sure anymore.

  • http://twitter.com/AtomHunt Tom Hunt

    I think these cars look absolutely fantastic. I think I’m going to spend my season 1 credits on one of these, the Ford probably!

  • WaitingForAC

    First off why did you take your name off and post as guest? “lullilulli wrote, in response to WaitingForAC:” is what the email says but not here.

    Second- What did I ever say about the GT2 and GT3 getting a second car decreasing participation? I don’t have a problem with it but why pretend that it is going to be in some timely fashion?

  • Anonymous

    Who said anything about its timeliness? He wanted something to come out for these classes, and two have been announced.
