iRacing Update Adds Laser Scanned Indianapolis 2022 Road Course Layout | Traxion



The iRacing Season 3 Patch 3 release adds a number of fixes to the service, including the addition of Indy’s 2022 road course layout.

iRacing has today (25e July 2022) released an update for Indianapolis Motor Speedway, adding a 2022 version to its list of configurations.

For iRacers lucky enough to already own Indianapolis Motor Speedway in-game, the update will be added for free, with the superseded layout now represented by its 2009 laser scan date.

The new version of the track comes at a good time, given that NASCAR and IndyCar are set to visit the world famous venue this weekend, with IndyCar set to race on Saturday 30e July and NASCAR on Sunday 31st.

Both championships will use the 2022 layout, and iRacers wishing to simulate the event against AI drivers offline or online will be happy to hear that this will be possible from the start…although we hope you don’t get involved in a brown Hamlin/ Situation…

The update is part of the Season 3 Patch 3 release which also includes fixes for an invisible barrier in Pocono, AMD FSR compatibility issues, and resolves several other graphical and configuration issues.
