As we have known for a number of months now, iRacing’s development team are working on the new Dirt content for their PC sim racing title. This week saw the emergence of a short video containing the first footage of their new Dirt instalment actually being trialled. With really only a hand full of screenshots and laser scanning images preceding the video, we now have an idea of just how the Dirt track portion of the title will look.
The quality of this video is not an indication of the finished product, obviously it is a WIP situation for all content related to the upcoming Dirt instalment. In the video we can see Steve Myers, Executive Vice President and Executive Producer at iRacing, putting the new content through its paces, driving in the Dirt Street Stock Car around the Eldora Speedway. The real life circuit is located near New Weston, Ohio.
Aside from the content you see in the video, (first seen on FaceBook and then posted to YouTube by Wim from BSimRacing) the team at iRacing have already confirmed the inclusion of the Ford Fiesta Rally-Cross car and the Dirt oval 410 Sprint Car. The first car to break cover was the Super Late model which will be ultimately offered in three variations when released.
The second dirt track that is widely thought to be accompanying Eldora Speedway is Williams Grove Speedway, a half-mile, dirt-racing track located in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. There is as of yet no mention as to which Rally-Cross circuit may be joining the aforementioned tracks. We will keep you all updated as we have more information on the Rally-Cross component of Dirt for iRacing.
