With last week's season patch we saw the release of two new road cars in iRacing. The new Dallara P217 LMP2 car was already known to be released and highly anticipated. As already pointed out in the announcement and the rules of SCO season 4 it will replace the HPD ARX with immediate effect.
The second new car was held secret by iRacing for quite a bit longer. It was only announced roughly a week before the patch, that iRacing will also release a fifth GTE car with the Corvette C8.R . Based on a quick survey we did among the qualified GT and GTC Teams, we decide to remove the Mercedes AMG from the GTC class in favor of the Corvette which will join the GT class. This left only the Audi R8 in the GTC class and the few teams being signed up with the Mercedes have their car been changed.
