iRacing.com – Lots of Montreal Previews

iRacing has released lots of previews of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.

iRacing has released lots of previews of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.

The Canadian Formula One venue is one of the next tracks to join the online racing simulation as production of the track is already quite advanced as you can see below.

Located on the man-made Île Notre-Dame that is part of the city of Montreal, the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is a 4.3 kilometer race track incorporating 13 turns.

The track has been hosting the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix since 1978 and is most famous for it’s final corner that has ended the race of many famous drivers, earning it the nickname wall of champions.

    Very cartoon like objects. Iracing is obsolete!

    • Anonymous

      Don’t be ridiculous. They use a color checker to reproduce colors. If you see them too cartoonish, you have a problem on your monitor.

      The track is AMAZING, can’t wait to see how will be with the new dx11 graphic engine.

        I’ve said OBJECTS not colors!!!

      • Hugo Stiglitz

        That’s stupid. Objects? So iracing is obsolete because of its objects? Get out of here man.

        Plus, if you really care about graphics that much why are you playing sims? Sims have never been about the graphics. If you want graphics go play NFS or Grid 2

        “Color Checker” LOL

        Color Checker, not too difficult to understand uh?

      You are an asshat of the highest level. Nice trolling of anything iRacing on this site. I take it there is and never has been a mod on this site.

      • Anonymous

        you must be one of their new forums mod. you believe it or not there are still places where you can say your opinion you believe it or not. I know iRacing’s forums isn’t the place but get over it! Just compare this shots with AC’s or pCARS’ iRacing does look cartoonish and so 2005 fanboy!

      • Slaven Ćorluka

        and like you said that is also your opinion which doesn’t make it right.

      • Anonymous

        but it’s still mine and I’m entitled to it! specially after screenshots from pCARS and AC.

      • Slaven Ćorluka

        you keep bringing pCARS and AC it still doesn’t make your opinion right. We all have seen them games as well.

      • Anonymous

        yes I’ve tested both pCARS and AC and imo both look much better than iRacing ingame better even than screenshots. There’s a reason iRacing is re-writing is graphics engine!

      • Slaven Ćorluka

        Well from what I have seen from all 3 games I also think AC and pCars have better overall graphics but iracing is doing few things better in my opinion which also produces mind blowing realistic looks in the game. Texturing is one thing that comes to mind. At this point iracing in my opinion is not too far off graphically at least not with their latest tracks and cars snapped in a screenshot.

      • Jett22

        That is all you have jackass? That I am a mod? Why is it that I am suddenly a fanboy for calling you out as a flaming asshat? I have come to this site for quite a while and never posted anything but your incessant drivel is over the freaking top. I take it you have no life or just such a shitty life as to come and knock anything other than what you like. I would Paypal you some money to get a life but I doubt it would help.

        it’s easy to be a keyboard warrior and iRacing’s fanboyz are masters at that. get some fresh air learn how to behave and talk and meet real people and change the glasses as you waste too much time in front of iRacing and your eyesight is even poorer than before that you can’t read what I wrote!

      • Jett22

        Listen moron..I know your a poor euro trash white kid with no money and that is sad. Truly. But take the needle out of your arm and try to enjoy life. Just because you hate yourself and everything else..except the 2 things you may enjoy..drugs and arcade racing doesn’t mean everyone else has to be dragged down to your level. You think your tough behind the keyboard but your not. We all know how sad you are.

        Someone else who can’t read the rules before they post.
        Let me remind you of them…

        https://www.virtualr.net/comment-rules

        Please don’t make me step in here. SBKRacer, you need ot stop trolling the iRacing posts too. Simply posting “Very cartoon like objects. Iracing is obsolete!” makes it clear you are just trying to get a reaction, have another prod at iRacing. I don’t care how much of iRacing you have bought, that doesn’t entitle you to troll on here with posts like that.

      • Mario Strada

        FIRacer, please do us all a favor, get rid of the trolls. Anyone that is unable to discuss simulators and driving games without making it sounds like we are discussing politics should not be around a civil forum.
        I too have my preferences, I like that game’s grass more while I prefer the handling in the other game and so forth, but I don;t call other users “stupid” or worse simply because they have a different opinion. That’s insane.

        Unfortunately, my other hobby involves a lot of debates and nasty posts, but in that case it’s understandable as we discuss the very meaning of life, religion, politics and so forth. Tempers flare often, but even then I prefer a civil discourse.

        This is a sim forum. There is no place for ad Hominems. There is no place for hate. It’s simply not conducive to discourse and it’s especially out of place in what should be a fun hobby with people helping each other instead of trolling.

        Remember, there is no 1st amendment when it comes to private forums. You only get free speech from the government, but if you come to my house to yell at me, you get no free speech.

        I think that starting with suspending certain repeat offenders for a month would clear the air. If they offend again, even just to complaint about the suspension, zap them again and this time for good.

        Since some claim “there are other places where one can speak freely” than go there with your venom.

        I come here for information. Diatribes about whose game has the best grass that end up in a shouting match and 30 posts between 2 users yelling at each other are not what I come here for,/.

        Ban them.

      • http://virtualr.net/ F1Racer

        Mario, while I appreciate the post, it sounds as though you’re telling me how I should carry out my job as moderator. You’re also telling me a lot of stuff I already am very aware of.

        They’ve been warned to behave already so it’s up to them if they want to listen or not. If they are up to speed with the posting rules they will know what can happen if they don’t.

        And as I am not American, I don’t recognise the 1st amendment anyway. Free speech is a myth btw. But that’s a whole other debate for another time and place.

      • myvracelog

        Enjoyable read. Somewhat contradictory but still a nice read.

      • http://virtualr.net/ F1Racer

        Stalking me now ? Not smart. (and you lost your other post btw because now you’re flamebaiting).

        If you want to have a disagreement and a lightly heated debate with me, that’s fine, I`ll bite. I can take it. But just be careful how you otherwise conduct yourself. Just saying.

      • myvracelog

        oh you gonna draw a line in the sand. Pfft.

      • http://virtualr.net/ F1Racer

        Consider it drawn.

      • Hugo Stiglitz

        Sorry but that’s just ridiculous. pCars are ridiculously cartoonish. The colors are saturated, and the graphics are blurry. i don’t know if it’s DoF but pCars graphics don’t look right.

        AC looks good but it’s colors are a bit saturated too and a bit blurry.

        Iracing on the other hand not only has realistic colors, but they’re clear and sharp. Iracing is anything but cartoonish.

        You’re obviously just being a troll. I’m not one of these iracing fanboys but the graphics are the least cartoonish of any sim without a doubt.

      • http://virtualr.net/ F1Racer

        Oh there is and we’re about to get aquainted if you both can’t behave.

  • Anonymous

    Shame these are the low res versions. The full resolution on the forums are pretty spectacular. Still a bit left to be gained with a few low-poly trackside objects, but the textures are simply fantastic.

    And the new lighting. Fog, clouds, and different times of day, huzzah!

  • Slaven Ćorluka

    here is my fav shot

    • Anonymous

      and here is mine!

      • Slaven Ćorluka

        iracing in this comparison is by far more realistic in my mind but again seen that photo before and even though it looks good and have nothing against AC but that grass needs work.

      • Anonymous

        I respect your option Slaven in the end of the day what matters is what you like. You like iRacing’s better and I AC’s that’s great that’s called diversity and it’s part of human nature 🙂 *whispers but don’t tell that to fanboyz they will hate you for that 🙂

      • Slaven Ćorluka

        I’ll take that even though I never said I like iracing more than AC just in the screenshot comparison above. How can I dislike AC more when I haven’t even played the full version yet.

      • Jett22

        Ignore the troll. If you can that is. He doesn’t like iRacing yet is in almost every story written on here about it. I believe the douchebag thinks that stalking iRacing stories is fun.

      • Anonymous

        lol. you don’t show a single fact give a lesson on hate speech and still says that lol!

        Slaves – Well from what I have seen from all 3 games I also think AC and pCars have better overall graphics.

        Lulli – can’t wait to see how will be with the new dx11 graphic engine.

        You definitely are part of the ‘Obamaphone lady’ gang 😉

      • Jett22

        What fact do I need to show? I don’t need to show you’re a troll as it is a fact.

        And if you want to go with the ‘Obamaphone lady’ gang I can deal with coming from the ‘HitlerYouth camp’ you must live in.

        So, not liking iRacing means he has no right to an opinion? Got it.

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        That is how it works in the iracing forums; guess they think that is how it is everywhere.

      • Hugo Stiglitz

        Are you serious? AC’s grass needs work?

        Iracing’s grass is FLAT lol, so how you gonna complain about AC’s? Iracing just has a texture for its grass, at least AC has some blades.

        The only reason I prefer iracings graphics is there’s so much clarity. AC is a little too blurry for my liking but it has potential.

We are here for the long run our business model has proved to be future proof very different from other models. Trying to discredit many years of hard work is not the way to go and I won’t ban you from our forums because you are already banned Mr. Flavien Vidal!

        LOL amazing! 😀

        Shannon stay out this place, don’t lose your time answering trolls. Continue the good work you guys are doing. Numbers speak themselves fortunately!

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        Yes Shannon, we know that ya’ll ban anybody that doesn’t blow bubbles up your butt.

        Michael, please watch your words and maintain a certain level of respect towards other users – Thanks!

      • Michael Hornbuckle

        So the word “butt” is now offensive; whatever. You should be one of their new mods Montaya, you’d fit in real good.

        So tell me, what part of “level of respect towards other users” was Shannon complying with when he gave a users full name on a board where the user posts under an alias?

      • Timpie

        To be honest, he was really just telling the truth as you can see from Shannons post above and what he said.

      • Hugo Stiglitz

        What? Is saying that Shannon is prone to banning people really that disrespectful?

        Come on now, there are much much worse cases of disrespect going around on this site but you choose to single out that one? Seems strange to me

      • WaitingForAC

        Hey Shannon, kind of cute how you are so willing to divulge private information of one of your paying customers to defame him in a public forum. I really Hope Flavien decides to take some sort of legal action against you to be honest. It really shows your true colors, cant have a differing opinion so hey lets ban you from our forums and try to ostracize you everywhere possible. Oh wait, it’s only iRacing who can do the suing and bullying right with John Henry’s corporate lawyers?

        Your tough guy act has gotten old and by the accounts of many you are the the biggest reason iRacing is a complete and utter disaster when it comes to competition. You take zero action on anyone if they are someone who is a fanboy or someone who hangs out in a certain circle, yet ban instantly others who may not like iRacing or something they do for whatever reason. There are droves of members who have left your service with the reasons starting with you and Nim Cross.

        Pretty funny, you got a golden parachute to be a tough guy at a rich buddies play toy gaming company. Cant take a little heat though, your life must be horrendously hard. I really feel for you when you get a little criticism.

        “Discredit years of hard work” What hard work would this be Shannon, your sim has arguably getting worse every single build when it comes to physics. Cones flying? Great update! GTR2 had that almost 10 years ago. You are even releasing the Lotus 49 admittedly on a broken NTM v5. But it makes perfect sense, anyone who says it is terrible (which I am willing to guess it probably wont be good) will be bombarded by the fanboys who will say “its not finished or constantly in a beta.” You guys sure got that down pat, release half assed work and say it is constantly evolving, then ban them from the forums!

        Answer me this Shannon: If the Ford GT was claimed to be perfect by iRacing, why has it had atleast 4 different versions of it over it’s life span that drive nothing alike? Which means that one of them if not all weren’t “the most realistic simulation of a Ford GT”

        Please dont twist my words, maybe one day you guys get it right. For now get a little thicker skin and lose the tough guy act here and on your forums. For that reason alone you deserve to go under just for the way you treat your customers who might not blow sunshine your way like the fanboys.

        Edit- good job down voting me who ever did, you did it in less than 30 seconds so you never even read it.

      Shouldn’t there be like a shadow somewhere? oO

      • Anonymous

        Very soft ones under the bridge, because it’s overcast.

      • Matt Orr

        Yes, it’s been an issue with their newer shadow tech though, Motegi and Suzuka do the same. The older style shadows (which can still be used) don’t have that issue, but also eat more performance.

      • Anonymous

        It is already fixed 😉 check it!

      • Matt Orr

        When was that? When I last drove at Motegi with the new shadows it wasn’t correct, and that was earlier this season.

      • Anonymous

        30 May!

      • Slaven Ćorluka

        its full overcast. Sharp shadows do not appear in this case since no sun only ambient (sky) soft shadows which could be a bit better but still looks really good to me.

  • Realkman666

    Looks cool. They even have the right NASCAR sponsors. Fitting for iRacing, I suppose. 😉

      They scanned it during the NASCAR weekend, so stuff like pitlane and the grandstands are set up for them rather than F1.

      I’m definitely hoping for future developments where the trackside advertising can change, like the real tracks.

        Yup, the weather variation, namely during the race, is what I’m looking forward to most.

      • Timpie

        But won’t all official sessions still use the same weather? And during the race itself, nothing will change either if I’m not mistaken? It’s new static settings you can choose from for hosted sessions correct?

      • Anonymous

        Official has no change for now, they say they will evaluate after this season when they see how it behaves. Sounds like the ‘realistic’ option will have variation during the race, including temp and wind gusts.

        Sounds good, about time there was a dynamic 🙂

      His comments are so outlandish I’d be amazed if it ruined anything for anyone. I can understand some criticism for iracing but a lot of these trolls are way off base and clearly want to defend their choice of playing another sim instead of being a member of iracing by completely bashing it. It’s sort of like denial.

      I think this build is good for us members, nothing can ruin that. Not even the residual anger I have left from the delay lol

      Not trolls, people with an opinion that differs from yours.

      Has to be one of the most over- and misused words on the internet.

      • Anonymous

        Not everyone with a different opinion is a troll, but some are. Unproductive comments intending to get a reaction are trolling by definition. Someone coming into a thread just to argue is a safe bet there’s a troll. Only one in this article, though more are critical.

      • Timpie

        Arguably yes, but if someone comes here and say ‘I don’t like the look of it” I don’t immedeatly think troll. I think “Well, that person is probably more used to games like for instance a pCars which have a different style”. But too many people lately seem to only have a tunnelvision which makes every other opinion redundant and automatically a troll.

    On a related topic, I understand Montoya is employed by pCars/WMD (correct me if I’m wrong), but why do we have an article on Build 515 of pCars, but nothing on the every 3 months release notes for iRacing.

    Myth 5: iracing system limits the amount of crashes.

    i just recorded this today, 1st irace of the day, in arguably one of the easiest cars to drive in iracing. Everybody say TRUE!

    and now, all these poor people have to wait 4 hours if they want to do the race again. brilliant.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv4k-6ofltU&feature=youtu.be

    • Anonymous

      Typical race start? I’m not so sure. It doesn’t eliminate crashes, but it definitely reduces them. Week 13 seems to be the proof of this, specifically with the unofficial ‘fun’ series traditionally being crash fests compared to official series.

      If you missed it, the 4-hour schedules are going back to 2 hours. The experiment didn’t work, so they’re going back.

    • Matt Orr

      Amazing, even in the real world with the potential of death crashes still happen. IT’S ALL BROKEN!!!!!11!!1!!11!!!!

      Thank Thor you are really bad at starts (poor acceleration and could not even shift in time) or you would have been involved in an accident.

        are you a noob? i obviously started slow because im playing for safety rating so i can get to class A. and its a good thing i did, otherwise i would have been involved in the accident in front. ….. Hence why I start slow. because you can 90% guarantee an accident in front.

        Hahahaha loooool!! So you are one of those: “Heyyyy, i race for SR” hahahaha “heyyyyy, i dont qualify because i am scared of traffic” hahahaha.

        No wonder you complaint so much about it…you just have no idea

        there is no racing on iracing due to the stupid damage model and safety rating system. that is my point.
        i have to race for SR to get to class A license so i can finally drive the F1 cars…… pretty simple to understand.

        if you try and properly race, there is a 50% chance you will get tangled up with someone and unable to avoid it, or get caught in an accident happening up front, or nudge the guy next to you causing the whole car to be undriveable due to the dumb damage model.

      Well first of all, in any F1 car it’s easy to get tangled up at the start and cause crashes like that. Has nothing to do with iracing, that can happen in any sim and you’re lying if you say otherwise.

      Secondly, one of the easiest cars to drive? Are you nuts? That’s one of the most sensitive and twitchy cars in the whole sim, what the hell is easy about that? Of all the cars I have, the Lotus 79 probably require the smoothest inputs of anything. Equal with the FW31.

      Plus, even if it was easy, which it’s not, it’s still extremely difficult to master.

      It’s far from one of the easier cars in iracing. It’s one of the toughest on the road side of it.

        you must be a noob then, because the lotus 79 is one of the few cars in iracing that lets you play with the slip angle of the car, and doesn’t suddenly break traction like the star mazda or Honda LMP2 car does.

        clearly you dont have any car control then. That video that i linked was literally my first ever go in the car at Spa. I know the track, had never driven the car, for real. Dunno if iRacing logs mileage in the cars so I can prove that.

        its very controllable around the limit. I bet youre using fanatec wheels with belt resistance, probably why you can’t control it.

        Did iRacing say it doesn’t happen in their sim? No.

        Your ‘myth’ is that iRacing “limits” ie. reduces the number of crashes. Just compare to week 13 if we want to find out if SR helps or not.

        The only thing iRacing really logs is the money it withdraws from your banka ccount.

        Oh hey, it’s Mr. Logitech wheels are bestest cause FSR drivers are bestest guy.

        Never had a problem driving the HPD or SM. Or any other car except the sprint car (which everyone does as they should, considering it’s a F1 Power to weight ratio with a mega short wheelbase and no downforce!)

        I also don’t see wrecks happen in T1 much. Must be Fanatec hax.

        Wonder why your fast lap was a full 2 seconds off the pace, as well, Mr. FSR Driving God. Doesn’t sound like you are near the limit when you go that slow.

        lol are you mental? do you honestly think im pushing for lap time in iracing? ive already said…………ive been driving to get safety rating up so i can become class A and drive the f1 cars. If you could bother to read anything….you’d know that.

        going for laptime in iracing requires 100’s of laps of BS testing and setup tweaking which i have Zero interest in.

        regarding wheels. it is a truth that g25/g27 has less standing resistance and allows the player to react quicker. not my fault youve been brainwashed by marketing and pricing. its not your fault though there are a lot of people here who think the same. its probably why you think the lotus 79 is difficult to drive.

        So, you are admittedly slow. Two seconds off the pace. Infact, your average was actually 6 seconds a lap slow. 6. Seconds. That isn’t slow, that is getting to the 107% rule slow in the same car. Even “riding around for SR” that is painfully slow.

        You are so slow in iRacing you can’t even GET to the racing from the looks of it. There is plenty of racing.

        That isn’t racing though. Even though I’ve never seen anything anywhere else that was as awesome as that last lap. Not racing. Doesn’t happen in iRacing. Oh hey, 4xs dished out, no one cared, too busy racing.

        I never said the 79 was hard. It isn’t. It’s a very easy and forgiving car in regards to slip angle that will do whatever you want. At the raw limit of it’s ability, it is difficult, just like any other car.

        The guy who won the P/GT Open Championship in the Ford – which is probably the most competitive car in iRacing – uses the fixed set. Setups mean jack snot.

        Wheels mean next to nothing, it’s preference. I’ve been down the Logitech route, now on the Fanatec route as I was looking for something different feeling. I turn the same lap times wheel to wheel, but the Fanatec feels better to my hands and is more predictable with less notchyness.

        Just for kicks, I checked out the FSR race you had on your channel, figured I’d kill 3 minutes. I counted at least 3 wrecks that would have ended your race. 2 of those were on the first lap. Damage model what?

        ‘so you are admittedly slow, two seconds off the pace’.

        i literally do not know….what you are talking about.
        if you honestly think theres competitive racing on iracing youre totally deluded. it looks like you’ll defend iracing no matter what, pathetic.

      Wins on what basis ?

        Guess I should have removed the win bit, this is the first time I’ve read this iracing post, didn’t know it was on fire.

    • Michael Hornbuckle

      Both look plenty good, sun glare off glass effects in AC pretty mindblowing though. BTW, when is the iracing Mclaren getting updated to this years specs?

      • http://www.arraystudios.com/ Dustin Dawes

        In 3 years after the Lotus 49 comes out.
