2022 Season 1 Hotfix 1 Release Notes [2021.12.08.02]

iRacing released a Hotfix today containing some fixes and updates for the 2022 Season 1 Initial Release.

iRACING UI:

————————————————————–

Paint Shop

  • Custom paints and templates are now unavailable for use and download for both the Mercedes-AMG F1 W12 E Performance and the Williams FW31.
  • – – All paint schemes for these two cars have been reset.

SIMULATION:

————————————————————–

AI Racing

  • Fixed an issue where some lower skill rating AI Drivers could sometimes fail to enter the pits on road courses entirely. They needed to rethink their “send it” strategy.
