The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course has been rebuilt in iRacing with new laser scan data.

The updated road course features an extended infield straightaway and adds a cut into the infield before Oval Turn 1 to limit drivers’ speeds, but retains the first four corners of the previous clockwise layout.

After hosting IndyCar races, the redesigned road course was used for the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2020 followed by the NASCAR Cup Series last year.

Check out the iRacing 2022 Season 3 Patch 3 release notes below for a full list of changes.

iRacing UI

Go Racing

  • Resolved a starting time display issue in the Series and Hosted modals when GMT clock formats are enabled.

Cars

  • Car-specific rules are now displayed in a few places to make understanding unique cases with some cars easier. This includes on a Car’s info page, and while loading into a Session using a car with special rules. Special Rules info includes information about wing adjustments, hybrid systems, Push-2-Pass, and tires.

AI Racing

  • AI Racing is now available at Indianapolis Motor Speedway - Road Course!
  • Fixed an issue where AI Roster car numbers could conflict with player car numbers in Race Results.

Simulation

Graphics

  • Fixed an issue for single monitor full-screen mode with AMD FSR enabled.

  • Fixed an issue with low resolution particles while AMD FSR is enabled.
  • Fixed an issue with window resizing with AMD FSR enabled.
  • Fixed an issue where night lighting could flicker inside cockpits in very bright areas of night tracks when HDR is enabled.

Virtual Reality

  • Two new settings options, “UIScreenDistCM” and “UIScreenWidthCM” have been added to the [VR] sections of the “rendererDX11.ini” files.
  • - - These new distance settings specify the depth and width (measured in centimetres) where the UI screens should render in world space. Generally, if you scale the distance you also want to scale the width about the same amount to keep the apparent size of the screen about the same, otherwise the screen may become too tiny or too large to utilize.
  • When the Sim is launched from the iRacingUI with a specific display device request (OpenVR, Rift, OpenXR, Monitors), the Simulator will no longer try to detect/initialize unrelated VR HMDs/runtimes unnecessarily.
  • Fixed the OpenXR re-centring issue where the head position tracking would be in the wrong direction after re-cenering. For example, if the re-centre rotated 90 degrees, the position tracking would be off by 90 degrees.
