iRacing Season 3 Update 1 Released

Like nearly all software updates, bug fixes need to be made in the updates aftermath and iRacing did that today with Season 3, Update 1.  The update not only fixed bugs such as allowing ATI Crossfire to work properly but a few sim updates as well.

Some of the updates highlights are the implementation of the latest Fanatec SDK, additional base setups and the recently released tire curing effect being added to the Ford V8 Supercar, Ford GT, Ford Mustang FR500S, Legends Ford ’34 Coupe, Lotus 49, Lotus 79, both Mazda MX-5’s, Pontiac Solstice, Ruf RT 12R AWD and RWD, Skip Barber Formula 2000, Spec Racer Ford, Star Mazda and VW Jetta TDI Cup.  Pretty much all the V5 tire model cars that didn’t get it in the Season 3 build last week.

The entire Season 3, Update 1 can be seen below.  Speaking of the update, now that you’ve had some time with the new tire curing (if you race one of the cars not listed above of course), what do you think?
