iRacing – New Version Released
iRacing.com has released a new version of their online motorsports simulator, just in time for the 4th season in 2008. The update includes plenty of changes, most notably the introduction of the Chevy Silverrado known from the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.
Furthermore, a few new features have been introduced. The simulation is now supporting engine damage & failures, which can be caused by over-revving or early downshifting. Furthermore, the simulation now features full course cautions on oval racing tracks, bringing a very important aspect of oval racing to iRacing.
Along with the Silverrado, the Phoenix International Raceway makes its way into the sim, adding another important NASCAR venue to the impressive list of tracks. The video below shows the Chevy Silverrado around the 1 mile oval in Arizona.
