Fans of iRacing have got some brand-new content to play with following Wednesday’s 2022 iRacing Season 4 build update. There were three new tracks released, including the free-with-membership Rudskogen Motorsenter and the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben which we may have a video for later this week. For dirt racers, iRacing also released a brand-new oval in Lucas Oil Speedway.
While there were also some car upgrades to the ARCA Menards Chevrolet Impala and the Lotus 79, the only new piece of vehicle content comes in the form of the new Porsche Mission R Concept Car, an all-electric racing machine. The cockpit also moonlights as a sim racing rig when removed.
Dave Cam is excited for this one. The design is pretty epic, and this looks like it may be a start to the future of motorized racing, but how does it drive? The all-wheel drive machine, with separate motors for the front and rear wheels, only has a single drive gear. Don’t be fooled, as this thing absolutely flies!
Take a seat and watch as Dave navigates the new simulated racecar around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Dave will take you through his first impressions with the car as he switches from race to qualify mode and opens up another 400bhp.
What do you think about iRacing’s first attempt at an all-electric vehicle? Would you like to give this piece a try, or have you already bought it and been wowed over it’s incredible speed like Dave has? Let us know your thoughts on the Porsche Mission R down in the comments below!
