That iRacing is one of the most popular sim games is I don't think I need to explain any more. iRacing is known for its unparalleled realism and authenticity. The simulation accurately reproduces the physics of different vehicles and tracks, giving players an experience similar to real racing. In addition, iRacing continues to evolve by regularly new content and add features after each season. New cars, tracks and improvements are released regularly, keeping the experience fresh and engaging for players.

New iRacing Updates

Rumours have been circulating for some time that changing weather conditions, among other things, will make its appearance. However, at the time of writing it is still unknown when this will happen. Recently, however, iRacing teased on its social media channels that another very cool update is coming!

Through its social media channels, iRacing previewed an image of the two Grand Touring Prototype (GTP) cars already available for the online racing service, accompanied by two vehicles yet to be revealed. One would think that guessing what is under the covers would not be a difficult task, given that the iRacing post clearly states that it is all about IMSA GTP content.

IMSA GTP cars: A Retrospective

Before delving into the upcoming expansion, it is important to understand the significance of IMSA GTP cars. Once a prominent class in the motorsport world, the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) GTP class was known for its diverse range of race cars that tore around the track in the 1980s and 1990s. These bolides featured advanced technology and aerodynamics, and attracted the attention of motorsport enthusiasts worldwide.

iRacing introduces two new cars in the GTP class

The increasingly popular Hybrid class will be further expanded with new GTP cars. The BMW M Hybrid V and the Cadillac V-Series.R are already available in the game and are immensely popular. That only leaves the Porsche 963 (Type 9R0) and the Acura ARX-06 as contenders in the 2023 IMSA Grand Touring Prototype class. This means you can soon take a seat behind the wheel of iconic cars like the Porsche 963 and the Acura ARX-06. We are very excited and can't wait to put these two new animals through their paces. And let's face it, they are beautiful!

Conclusion

With the upcoming addition of new IMSA GTP cars to iRacing, sim racing enthusiasts and motorsport fans will be treated to an unparalleled experience with two stunning new GTP cars. The combination of cutting-edge technology, attention to detail promises to be a fantastic new experience. We are hugely looking forward to the launch of these new additions and sharing the passion for motorsport with our community. What do you think of this new addition?
