iRacing update adds laser scanned 2022 Indianapolis Road Course layout

iRacing update adds laser scanned 2022 Indianapolis Road Course layout

iRacing’s Season 3 Patch 3 release adds a number of fixes to the service, including the addition of Indy’s 2022 Road Course layout.

iRacing has today (25th July 2022) released an update for Indianapolis Motor Speedway, adding a 2022 version to its roster of configurations. 

For those iRacers lucky enough to already own Indianapolis Motor Speedway in-game, the update will be added free of charge, with the superseded layout now represented by its 2009 laser scan date. 

iRacing update adds laser scanned 2022 Indianapolis Road Course layout

The new track release is timely, considering both NASCAR and IndyCar are set to visit the world-famous venue this coming weekend, with IndyCar set to race on Saturday 30th July and NASCAR on Sunday 31st

Both championships will use the 2022 layout, and those iRacers wishing to simulate the event against AI drivers offline or online will be glad to hear this will be possible from the get-go… although here’s hoping you don’t get involved in a Hamlin/Chastain situation… 

The update comes as part of Season 3’s Patch 3 release which also includes fixes for an invisible barrier at Pocono, AMD FSR compatibility issues and resolves several other graphical and set-up problems. 

Are you looking forward to sampling Indianapolis’s latest Road Course layout in iRacing? Let us know in the comments below.

iRacing Season 3 Patch 3 Changelog 

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. 

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 centimeters) 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-centering issue where the head position tracking would be in the wrong direction after re-centering. For example, if the re-center rotated 90 degrees, the position tracking would be off by 90 degrees.
