    yeah I could see that being fun. I hope they do a good job of establishing a solid oval "career" with it. It seems right now if you want to race the ford '40 or whatever it is, you are doomed to race rookies. I hope they make that series at least a C level series.

    Yeah I got excited thinking about it too while watching. I'm surprised iracing hasn't done a little bit of promo to hype it a little more. But maybe they are being cautious not to have a repeat of the whole iracing 2.0 debacle.

    Yea, I think they're going to release dirt in stages. The first stage is most likely going to be dirt for hosted sessions only, and then slowly roll out the official series and the new license/SR system.

    Have they officially stated that dirt will be a new license/SR? I would think they would have to, but you have to think of the road side (rally or offroad racing) of the equation too, so are they going to come out with 2 new licenses/SRs? And what about the irating? Are there going to be new iratings for each dirt category?

    Should be interesting to see what happens.

    I'd have to say they mean the 2017 Season 1 build. The first day of Winter for 2016 is December the 21st. As long as they release the 2017 Season 1 build before then, technically it'd be a Fall release.

    I just hope the street stock isn't a rookie only class. I also hope that they offer an open set-up for it as well.

    From watching isrtv.com weekly news, I have heard that driving on dirt is really tough and different from driving on asphalt. Sounds like this could be a real challenge.

    This will finally get me to cough up for an iRacing subscription and a proper setup. Down the rabbit hole I go.

    I assume you guys have seen the short video that has come out. Not much to it, but something.

    The williams grove VR video is insane! That looks like it is going to be very taxing on my old system! I might need to start saving for a new Motherboard/CPU/RAM combo.

    All I know is I'm going to get in the sprint car, fly off into the turn slide into the cushion and barrel roll it first time out.

    I honestly don't see how they are going to release all of this without creating a new dirt license of some kind. It looks like they have a great ladder system ready to go, starting with the street stocks and working it up to the winged sprint cars. But then you also have to think about the rally cars that are coming in the future, so there has to be a dirt oval and dirt road/offroad license. I assume that once rally cars are finished people will be asking for the short course offroad trucks like the Papyrus group used to make. Very intersting times ahead!
    Also, I'm not buying the March 29th release date either. If they release anything on that date, it will be one track with the street stock, IMO.
