iRacing begins Season 4 2023 Content Announcements


There are just a few weeks left until iRacing season 4 of 2023 and the team behind the sim is picking up the content tease. Here’s everything we know so far.

There’s no denying that the Season 3 update of this year for iRacing was a good one. But now over two months old, fans of the title are already looking ahead to the next content drop.

In less than two weeks, iRacing will release its Season 4 update for 2023 full of features and content. Aiming to secure as much hype as possible, the marketing team has already begun teasing and announcing content set for release on 6 September. Here are just some of the cars and tracks recently announced.

Porsche 963 Coming to iRacing

Whilst many already guessed that the Porsche 963 would release in this coming update, it has taken an Instagram post by Porsche Motorsport to confirm it. Indeed, last month, iRacing posted a photo hinting at the completion of the GTP class with the Porsche 963 and Acura ARX-06.

Today, Porsche Motorsport along with iRacing announced that its Le Mans-competing prototype will join the simulator in just under two weeks.

Powered by a twin-turbo 4.6-litre V8 and Bosch hybrid system, it produces 670hp. The car has been competing in IMSA and the FIA WEC since the start of the year and has claimed a pair of wins in the hands of Porsche Penske at Long Beach and Road America.

This release is sure to be one of the most popular in recent iRacing seasons. Indeed, the Porsche brand often attracts plenty of attention online and the 963 is no different. The car is already seemingly a fan favourite around the globe.

The big question now is, will the Acura ARX-06 join the Porsche this upcoming season? Following last month’s Tweet, one would guess at that being the case. However, spreading out GTP car content drops will certainly result in higher sales.

Tracks Incoming

This week has not only confirmed the release of a new GTP car, it also marks the announcement of another circuit. We already knew the rescanned Zandvoort would join the sim next month. But the iRacing Twitter account confirmed yesterday that Circuit Lédenon is also on the way.

This French venue often hides in the background behind more popular circuits. Indeed, the likes of Paul Ricard, Le Mans and Magny Cours are far more famous than this location. But with an undulating surface and a mix of corner types, it is perhaps one of the more challenging courses in the country.

In the real world, this venue mainly hosts lower-speed, national series. In fact, the most high-profile cars that visit the track is the French GT4 championship. However, it is most commonly a bike circuit, as one can tell from the challenging nature of the course. Whilst not much of a racing circuit, one could dub this a mini-Nürburgring. So expect a challenge to finish races.
