iRacing is due to release their first dirt racing content on Wednesday and William Marsh has been among the lucky first ones to sample the new racing discipline.

In his video below, William is giving all four dirt racing cars coming with the first release a spin, sharing his impressions with us.

iRacing’s dirt content will be split up in both oval and track racing content, featuring oval dirt cars such as the Dirt Late Model, Dirt Sprint Car & Dirt Street car as well as more European-style content with the Ganassi Racing Ford Rallycross cars.

The first batch of dirt content will be available with iRacing’s new build release this Wednesday.

    I’m not sure this is the right video to show off dirt racing, particularly as a preview. He looks about as lost on the track as I expect I’ll be. Not that I’m against him doing a video, but if it was iRacing’s plan that this would be the first big preview of the content they may have had other options who would have made the content look more impressive.

    That said, this is the first we’ve seen of the tracks under the lights, and they look good.

      And now the video has been pulled. Seems it wasn’t an iRacing planned release, and was someone breaking NDA instead.

        There was a minor miscommunication on the video. I had permission, but I accidentally jumped the gun by a few hours, and I found out I was using a wrong build.

        I’m going to end up doing a re-shoot video, but hey, gives me a bit more time to practice 😉

        At least you were first…

        I’ve decided to put the video back up since today is the release day, and I received dozens of requests.

        Note that I don’t really have anything in the way of dirt track racing experience, so I’m likely on par with the wide variety of racers that will be trying dirt for the first time

        If you’re looking for a racing expert’s preview, Inside Sim Racing’s preview showcases Billy Strange’s driving talents, and The Simpit just released an excellent preview too.

        However, if you want to watch a goofy video of someone trying to find his dirt legs, here you go!

    Run two races so far, and it’s an absolute blast trying to chase the track groove and battle for position. Going to take a lot of experience and practice, but the best part is nobody will be able to optimize a set or anything.

    Some of the most fun quick pickup racing I’ve had in a long time.
