iRacing S2 News - 2024

Attention, simracing fans! At Simufy we are bursting with excitement to present you a blog post that you can't miss. The latest iRacing update has arrived and, with it, one of the most anticipated and exciting new features of recent years: the introduction of rain. This revolutionary feature promises to transform racing, adding a new level of realism and challenge to the driving experience. But that's not all; in a surprising twist, iRacing has also turned four iconic circuits into free content.

The most awaited update arrives in iRacing: The Rain

Get ready for one of the most awaited updates that iRacing has had in a long time: now we will have rain! And as icing on the cake, we get 4 circuits completely free.

Already in season 2 of 2024, we are going to be able to experience how rain sneaks into our races. iRacing has decided to add this weather change to these cars from the GTP, LMP2 and GT3 categories, in addition to the Ray FF1600, the Toyota GR86 and the FIA F4. And this is just the beginning, because they plan to expand the list with more cars in future updates.

With the introduction of rain and the Tempest system, SimRacing becomes even more interesting, although we may need a little time to fully adapt to this new feature. novelty.

Things get intense when we run in the rain, as the old tricks on dry tracks no longer work. Now, the differences between the polished and rougher parts of the asphalt are key. And that racing line we were so used to becomes like an ice rink, forcing us to explore new ways to make our tires grip as they should. We have an exciting challenge ahead!

New Circuits in the base content

For the 2024 S2, iRacing has prepared some great surprises for us. They are going to add some amazing circuits: the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portimão and the Millbridge Speedway, which is a dirt oval that promises to give us a lot of fun. In addition, we also have as a novelty the new 3D pianos of Sebring and Fuji.

But that's not all, friends, because they are also going to give us, without paying a penny, some great circuits: the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben, the Snetterton Circuit, the Circuit de Lédenon and the Winton Motor Raceway. This is non-stop!

News in Vehicles

For the 2024 S2 in iRacing, exciting vehicles will be added: the Dallara 324, intended for competitions such as Super Formula Lights and Euroformula Open, will be classified at level C. In addition, the Micro Sprint, oriented to dirt tracks, will be free for all users and will have a special series for beginners. On the other hand, the SRX Car will compete on asphalt and dirt tracks, being placed at level D. A season full of novelties is anticipated.


iRacing is going to turn things around with road licenses. Now we are going to have two types: one for formula cars and one for sports cars. So if you are one of those who like to go full throttle with single-seaters or if you prefer the punch of a sports car, you will now have your own space. And don't worry, your rating and track record will be copied to the two new licenses to get you off to a good start. But beware, each one goes its own way, so what you do in one will not affect the other. It's like having two games in one!


It seems that they have put a hand to the UI, giving it a facelift to make everything easier and cooler. They're going to include a tutorial for newbies, which always comes in handy so you don't get lost in the first steps. Also, they have made some changes in how everything looks and how you navigate through the game. On the other hand, the sidebar is where the heart of the matter is: from there you control everything you need, from entering races to buying new cars. And the best part is that they've made it super intuitive, so finding what you're looking for is a breeze.
