This is just a quick post regarding some iRacing dirt news I saw today in the official iRacing forum. The word from iRacing has been that there will be three versions of the Dirt Late Model, each with different horsepower. Some members were wondering if they would have to buy all three versions as separate carss, or if the three versions would be a single car purchase.
The good news is, you will get all three of the iRacing Dirt Late Model versions with a single car purchase. Tony Gardner answered this question and had some other good news.
We are likely to have three different versions of the dirt late model. However all three will be for the price of one car, really just mainly three different engines/HP. Additionally we will probably only pick one for the official series at least to start. I was just actually watching Steve and Dave K drive the dirt late Model at Eldora on a local build. Still a ways to go but looking good!
We also will have other dirt cars as discussed. For example a dirt street stock and messing with a dirt legends car as another possibility. Those one or two cars would be free and provided with the base package.
So there you have it. One purchase for the three Dirt Late Model cars, plus a free Street Stock and Legends Car, just like on the asphalt side.
These good news tidbits keep the fire of excitement for iRacing dirt stoked. I’m really looking forward to it as I know many of you are. The latest rumor is 2016 Season 4 (September) or possibly 2017 Season 1 (December). This stems from a tweet by Eldora Speedway.
