iRacing is adding a new pilot series in Season 3 2023 – Ricmotech Ring Meister

From the third season of 2023, a new concept of official series racing is to be included in the iRacing rotation. Instead of the usual one-car, multi-track races that are more commonplace, iRacing announced on Friday (May 12) that the new Ricmotech Ring Meister Series will feature multiple cars at one track throughout the season.

The track is the Nürburgring-Nordschleife and the layout conforms to the industrial rides, the standard start area layout for the venue. Each race lasts four laps and races take place every two hours. Each week, the branded vehicle is exchanged for a different vehicle in order to complete the long 14.2-mile, 22.8-kilometer route.

If things go well, this pilot series could be the first of its kind. According to the iRacing Downshift podcast, it is expected to be a single-brand C-Class series. Only one type of car every week. There will be independent qualifying and there will be some problems to solve right at the first attempt. Those wishing to compete must purchase the track and all of the cars in order to compete each week, although some cars are included on the inaugural list.

The expected rotation, according to iRacing, will be:

  • WEEK 1: Mercedes-AMG GT3 2020
  • WEEK 2: Porsche 718 Cayman GT4
  • WEEK 3: Hyundai Elantra
  • WEEK 4: Toyota GR86
  • WEEK 5: Ferrari 488 GT3 EVO
  • WEEK 6: BMW M4 GT4
  • WEEK 7: Honda Civic
  • WEEK 8: Ray FF1600
  • WEEK 9: Porsche 911 GT3 R
  • WEEK 10: Aston Martin Vantage GT4
  • WEEK 11: Renault Clio
  • WEEK 12: BMW M4 GT3

There will be a slight difference with the weekly schedule change, where the last scheduled race on the Monday before the start of the new week will not actually be driven, but the car will instead switch to next week’s selection. Due to the way the system works, iRacers who are online at this time will need to refresh their UI to update to the new car planned for next week.

iRacing says the success of this concept could lead to more series of this type at other tracks and with other cars. I would expect it could even cross over to other licenses, maybe on some short tracks we could get a seasonal weekly oval series similar to Hickory Motor Speedway where players do Super Lates, Late Model Stocks, Silver Crowns, Modifieds and whatever You can also throw in a NASCAR NEXT Gen.

What do you think of this new concept from iRacing? Will you be taking part in the celebrations at the Nürburgring? Which car are you looking forward to the most? Let us know what you think about it in the comments!

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
