Back in February, iRacing President and CFO Tony Gardner unveiled a list of tracks in a forum post that would soon be making their way to the iRacing service over the next handful of updates and seasons.
Besides Pukehoke and Jerez which we had known about before that time, Gardner also unveiled Algarve, Misano, Lédenon and a rescan of Zandvoort. He also brought up a place called Aragón, and on Wednesday (10th May), the iRacing socials revealed that MotorLand Aragón is in production as we speak to arrive soon on the platform.
Located in Alcañiz, Aragon, Spain, the track also referred to as Circuito de Alcañiz is a fairly new circuit for motorsports events that was opened back in 2009.
MotorLand Aragón normally hosts events for the World SBK, in the past hosting races for Formula Renault, as well as GT racing and Touring Cars. This year, Aragón will also see the European Le Mans Series and Eurocup-3 on the schedule.
The track has multiple layouts, including a specific motorcycle layout with a more forgiving bike route at 5.078-kilometers (3.155-miles) and 16 corners. It’s normal GP layout has 18 turns at 5.345-kilometers (3.321-miles). There is also a National Circuit with 13 corners at 2.646-kilometers (1.644-miles) but it’s unclear which ones iRacing will include.
It was not confirmed that this track will be included with June’s 2023 Season 3 build, but the postings did say “soon”. The only announced content for Season 3 so far are the LMP3 and a good chance at a Dirt Refresh. In a later post as well, Gardner also confirmed that Mugello and Kern County are expected at some point as well.
The Season 3 iRacing build for 2023 is expected in the first or second week of June. What other new content do you hope to see?
