    For the premium track pack it’s just 1 track left. You forgot Monza.

    This is just a straight copy and past from Steam under the 2020-2022 season pass.

    That description needs to be updated imo, the other day I saw a topic in Steam forums with people confused as to what is currently available in season pass. @Renato Simioni @CrimsonEminence

    Looks great.

    I wonder whether not only the dirt will become dynamic but maybe also the rubber? Depending on where cars drive instead of a predefined texture.

    So many new features! Second time this weekend has been announced, I truly hope it means in time for us to play this weekend (ie Friday) and not at 23.59 on Sunday ;)

    Anyone wants to bet?
    F1 is coming back to Spa this weekend. Reiza is also releasing an update this weekend. And remember: they did release Galeão Airport some days before the actual race.
    I bet Spa 2022 will be released.

    I think last I heard mentioned Spa 2022 was planned to be released alongside 70s Spa and Nuerburgring, which was planned for September? But I would absolutely love for you to be correct.

    I agree that it is time to start wrapping up Racin USA (since it seems the licenses required haven't even been negotiated yet) and start finishing the other DLC that has been massively delayed.

    I got the impression that the plan was never to do an official Indy Car as part of racing USA but then Indy Car approached Reiza rather than the other way around. If you're Reiza and Indy Car approach you about full license you have to sit up and listen. It's not worth jeopardising that relationship in the long term (for them or us) so a few hundred people can get an update.

    "IndyCar approaching Reiza about full license" is still an optimistic guess about the situation where the reality is that a long-planned DLC is suddenly in legal limbo and with it Reiza's short-term cash flow. Meanwhile, the Historical Track Pack and Brazilian Grand Prix Legends DLCs rot like the proverbial skeleton at the bottom of the meme pool.

    I agree theres no point jeopardising a opportunity for any reason. Reiza know my stance of do it to the best of there ability and however long it takes I'm fine with.

    I think also we should remember Reiza is in the simulator business probably for life. Building a relationship now with a major racing body could benefit for many years to come.

    I also think that the management of the dirty track is dynamic, there was a video showing the evolution of the track.
    I did not find this video, but here is the one that shows the evolution of the temperatures on the track, it is completely dynamic, and the system for the dirty track is the same kind.

    Track rubber has always been dynamic since day 1. What is being done in the release upcoming is increasing the difference in grip between green and fully rubbered.
    Dust will also be dynamic as the tweet was showing.

    I don't know if they wanted to do an official indycar, but they surely wanted the IMS and Pensky licenses, and Pensky owns both Indycar and IMS anyway, what I think happened is that Reiza entered negotiations with Penske for all 3 licenses but Penske just didn't care and the discussions died off.
    Now Penske must have caught wind of the success of Racin' USA pt2 and of Reiza making an unofficial Indycar which motivated them enough to restart the negotiations with Reiza.
    Or something along those lines at least, if Reiza was in legal trouble I don't think Renato would have mentioned the possibility of expanding their plans.
    Removing the F-USA 22 from the dev update and canceling (for now) the release of the car is simply out of politeness and to not rub Penske the wrong way, you don't advertise and release an unlicensed version of a car while trying to get the license for the said car.

    The correct version of the story is that Reiza reached out Indy in the past and there was no feedback and conversation stalled (it was mentioned also in the past in the forum by Reiza if I am not wrong). In recent times finally there was feedback and talks re-activated. Very much as the post from Renato summarized.
    I wouldn't assume any additional/negative side to it which wasn't in the post of a few days ago. There could be indeed very valid reasons (both evident or confidential) as to why in the past there wasn't feedback and more recently the two organizations could finally talk, we really don't know.
