The pilot series of races will debut during iRacing’s Season 4 2023 update, and fits alongside the similar concept of the Ricmotech Ring Meister Series.
iRacing Draft Master series, Season 4 2023

A brand new racing series for iRacing subscribers, Draft Master, will place you in a new oval-focused vehicle each week and begins its roll-out as part of the platform’s 2023 Season 4.

Across 12 weeks, each race will be at either Daytona or Talladega ovals, with Daytona the former the venue for the first six events and the latter for the second half.

Of course, iRating and Safety Rating will be factored in across these 18 (Talladega) – 20 (Daytona) lap races with the key being able to adapt to the different driving styles required for each new type of vehicle. Caution periods will be omitted.

Six vehicles, or categories will be used, twice in in total across each location. Each track ‘finale’ ends with the current NASCAR Cup Series Next Gen category and two races will use the NASCAR Classic 1987 class – these will be bolstered by the option of the Pontiac Grand Prix, available as part of the Season 4 DLC.

The new pilot series sits alongside a similar concept introduced in Season 3 2023, the Ricmotech Ring Meister Series which uses the Nürburgring Nordschleife exclusively, but changes car each week. This will once again reappear for Season 4, with the full schedule below.

Also part of the upcoming update are the Porsche 963 GTP, an updated Zandvoort circuit and Kern County Raceway Park. Will you be entering any of the Draft Master or Ring Meister races in Season 4? Let us know in the comments below or via social media.
