What’s new in the official schedule of the third iRacing season 2023?

It’s finally here! The third iRacing season 2023 has finally started today and all new content and functions are now making their way into official racing. While there’s still plenty of existing content, if you’re looking for some new and shiny things, here’s the Season 3 2023 schedule for you to keep up with.

New cars, new and updated series

2023 iRacing Season 3 features three brand new cars in the service, all joining the most content license, Road. There’s some overlap, but the new content will give you plenty of opportunities to jump into over the next 12 weeks.

The main content must be that Cadillac V-Series.R GTP. This new car joins that BMW M Hybrid V8 in the GTP class and will compete in four multi-class racing series during Season 3, two of which will be weekly. Up to nine different cars can now be used in official and hosted races, which is one reason this is possible.

There is an Americanized series that represents IMSA and runs 45-minute races. The other is a European series of 60-minute events. However, there is some overlap. For example, IMSA will visit Spa, Jerez and Motegi, while the Euro Series will visit Watkins Glen, Daytona, Road Atlanta, Indy and Road America.

Only a Class B license or higher is required to participate in the IMSA iRacing Series, while participants with a Class A license can participate in the European Sprint Pure Driving School Series. Both series will compete against the Dallara P217 LMP2 class. IMSA features the GT3 class while Euro competes against GTEs.
