iRacing – Non-Winged Sprint Car Released

0

Last week, we got news that iRacing partnered with USAC to bring the Non-Winged Sprint Car to the online racing service, as well as a few new tracks. Now, the Sprint Car is now available, in 2 classes!

The big honking wings have been removed from the 360 and 410 Sprint Cars, to provide for a greater challenge. Both variants of the car are included in the single purchase, but since this is a drastically different car to the Winged Sprint Car, this will be classified as a separate car.

In addition to this new car, the iRacing Season 2 Patch 4 has been released, adding a lot of fixes to the sim. Most of the fixes are for the dirt racing side, but the NASCAR asphalt cars also have featured some new setups for drivers.

For a full list of updates and changes, take a look below! Are you going to get the new car? Let us know!

Dirt Sprint Car – Non-Winged

– NEW CAR!

– – While some organizations – most notably the World of Outlaws – have gone the route of winged sprint cars, the United States Auto Club (USAC) has remained faithful to the traditional, non-winged sprint cars that have served as the bedrock of grassroots open wheel racing since World War II. This is the Dirt Sprint Car you know and love, but without the stabilizing wings. This classic dirt car is guaranteed to provide even the most experienced dirt racers with a truly challenging and exciting racing experience.
