It’s finally here! 2023 iRacing Season 3 has finally launched today and all of the new content and features are making their way into official racing effective immediately. While there’s still plenty of existing content to get into, if you’re looking for the new and shiny stuff, here’s where you can race it on the 2023 Season 3 schedule.

New Cars, New and Updated Series

2023 iRacing Season 3 contains three brand new cars to the service, all of which join the license with the most amount of content, Road. There’s quite a bit of cross over, but the new content will have plenty of opportunities for you to jump into over the next 12 weeks.

The headlining piece of content has to be the Cadillac V-Series.R GTP. This new car joins the BMW M Hybrid V8 in the GTP class and will partake in four multi-class racing series during Season 3, two of which will occur on a weekly basis. Official and Hosted races now hold up to nine different cars, which is part of how this can happen.

There’s one Americanized series representing IMSA, which will have 45 minute races. The other is a European series with 60 minute events. There are some crossovers, however. For example, IMSA visits Spa, Jerez and Motegi while the Euro Series will hit up Watkins Glen, Daytona, Road Atlanta, Indy and Road America.

The IMSA iRacing Series merely needs a Class B license or above to participate while the European Sprint Pure Driving School Series will be for those at a Class A license. Both series will race against the Dallara P217 LMP2 class. IMSA has the GT3 class included while Euro races against GTEs.

There are also Endurance Racing series that don’t conform to the week-by-week iRacing schedule, but rather a bi-weekly schedule with much longer races. The Cadillac will be a part of those races, as well as the upcoming VCO Watkins Glen 6HR Special Event.

Dentist license not required in these LMP3 series

2023 iRacing Season 3 build date is most likely 6th June

The Ligier JS P320 LMP3 has two series that it will join in 2023 Season 3. One is the standalone series, a new one for the new car called the LMP3 Turn Racing Trophy. The other exists in the form of the Falken Tyre Sports Car Challenge, and it includes the new LMP3 as well as a host of GT4 cars in multiclass racing.

Both schedules are identical.

This new Porsche 911 GT3 R (992) is the latest and greatest in terms of GT3 racing from the German outfit. Replacing the older model that iRacing released two years ago, this car will find its way into those same series, including the IMSA Racing Series listed above for the Caddy.

Besides that, you’ll find the new Porsche in the following series. Oddly enough, all of their schedules are identical.
