All included content with a basic iRacing subscription

If you’re looking to get started with iRacing, what does a basic subscription include? Here are the included cars, tracks and features.

Registering for an iRacing.com account results in a standard membership to the service and allows users access to all things iRacing. In addition to the subscription, members can purchase tracks, cars, race servers, and third-party applications, all of which can add up to a richer and more expensive experience.

Let’s say you’re hesitant to try iRacing and you don’t want to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars right away. Then what comes with the standard subscription? As of Season 4 2022, here’s what you’ll get if you choose to try the service on a trial period with a basic subscription.

INCLUDES CARS

There are four different license classifications on iRacing, and content must be included in order for new members to progress through the rookie ranks. Oval, Road, Dirt Oval, and Dirt Road are these disciplines, and as such, you’ll find enough content to meet the requirements for progression.

Most of the vehicles you will find are primarily designed for street racing, but who says you can’t take a Volkswagen Jetta and drive it around an oval track?

INCLUDED TRACKS

Coca-Cola 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway |  eNCCiS race preview

As with the vehicles above, there are enough tracks to meet all license requirements to move from a rookie license to a Class D license. Once you start trying your hand at Class D licensed races, you will likely need to purchase more content to continue competing.

Some of the free tracks have multiple configurations that can be used in different licenses. For example, Charlotte Motor Speedway has an oval, a street course, and a rallycross configuration for the dirt road license. There’s also Centripetal Circuit on this list, but unfortunately that’s not used anywhere on the service except in single-player tests.

WHAT TO DO WITH THE INCLUDED CONTENT

What you need to know about iRacing AI

Of course, racing online with other members in the rookie ranks to build up your license level is the most common practice when starting out in iRacing, but there are more things you can take part in.

Hosted sessions and league racing are both ways to unofficially compete against others online. Of course, you can only participate in races that use the included content.

The same goes for AI Racing, a part of the service that’s relatively new, but more and more content is being added build after build. You’ll notice that I’ve included a column in the tables above indicating whether a content can be used with iRacing AI. Although a work in progress, iRacing AI is a great way to get track time and learn how to drive iRace in a non-online environment.

The iRacing interface also allows for car design and provides templates for the vehicles you own. There are pre-built bases with a list of sponsors already built-in to choose from, but customization is also possible if you have the means with something like GIMP or Photoshop.

Of course, if you decide to continue your iRacing career, you can always purchase content that will likely be part of your library forever, unless iRacing decides to withdraw or replace the content, which may be of some sort Lending business so you get something back in return.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
