Here are the release notes for the build:

SIMULATION:

————————————————————–
Rendering

We have integrated SpeedTree into our simulation/game engine. SpeedTree is a 3D vegetation modeling and rendering system designed for films and real-time games. It provides our artists with tools to build location-specific trees and then quickly place them at our racetracks. The system is engineered to render these trees efficiently and with built-in level-of-detail (LOD) management, and has received specific customization to make it work optimally for iRacing’s requirements. This feature is making its debut at Mount Washington and will be used more extensively in the future.

CARS:

Mount Washington Auto Road

NEW TRACK!
– – Mount Washington Auto Road is now available as a pre-release track!
– – This Rallycross track includes two configurations, Hillclimb, and Descent.
– – Towering at 6,288 feet, Mount Washington is the highest peak in the northeastern United States and the sixth-highest mountain in all of North America. The Mount Washington Auto Road was completed in 1861, stretching 7.6 miles and climbing 4,618 feet from base to summit at an average gradient of 11.6%. The road is both open to private vehicles and guided tours, and “THIS CAR CLIMBED MOUNT WASHINGTON” bumper stickers are prevalent throughout New England. In 1904, the inaugural Mount Washington Hillclimb Auto Race was hosted. Held sporadically over the past century, the “Climb to the Clouds” is nonetheless the oldest auto race in the country. Its latest revival as a full-blown race came in 2011 as a tri-annual event, and each edition of the race since 1956 has seen a new record time set by the winner. The most recent record was set by Travis Pastrana in 2017. Mount Washington serves as iRacing’s first-ever point-to-point hillclimb race – do you have what it takes to make it to the top?
