Week 13 is upon us once again, beginning Monday at 8:00pm EST. Much like previous seasons, iRacing will hold two official series and several fun series to run during the week.
iRacing runs official series racing as 12 week segments. Following the 12th week of racing, iRacing takes one week “off”, to allow for major sim updates. Updates that may drastically change cars, setups and tracks. This week allows the updates to happen and ensure there are no bugs during official racing. The 13th week is usually fun races, using popular cars and tracks and usually a fun series using a new car and/or track that is released with the build.
In this 13th season, everyone from Rookie Class up to Class B will be able to race official races to earn Safety Rating and iRating, giving members one last chance to increase their license ratings before promotions for Season 1. Rookies will have the opportunity to race two official races or four time trials in each category to graduate to a D Class for Season 1.
Official Series will include the SpecRacer Ford Challenge for the road side, and the Street Stock Challenge on the oval side.
- SRF Challenge – Spec Racer Ford
Okayama (long and short), Charlotte (road), Laguna Seca, Summit Point (Jefferson Reverse) and Lime Rock.
- Street Stock Challenge – JR Motorsports Street Stock
