The Renault Clio Cup car, recently showcased by iRacing on social media, is set to replace the VW Jetta TDi in the Production Car Challenge for 2023 Season 2 according to a scheduling update post by iRacing’s Greg West.

The Jetta was added to the iRacing service while I still worked there and has obviously put in an extended stint, but it’s a little disappointing any time a free car (Jetta) is removed from a series in favor of a paid one (Clio).

Here’s the text of the forum post for full information:

Season 2 Road Series Updates

With the release of season 2, we have some exciting new content entering the iRacing ecosystem as well as some changes to existing series.

Ray FF1600:

This car will be part of our FREE base package and will debut in both a Rookie and class D road series.

The Formula 1600 Rookie Series – Fixed will share a schedule with the Formula Vee Series while being 30 minutes offset. This will allow for new members to only have to learn one track per week while being able to easily understand the differences between the two cars’ handling characteristics. The timing of these series will allow for drivers to be able to race in both series back to back if they so desire. To accomplish this, the Formula 1600 Rookie Series – Fixed will start on the :15 every hour while the Formula Vee Series moves to the :45 every hour.

Joining the ranks of our class D road series is the all new Formula 1600 Trophy. This open setup series will also run hourly on the :45 featuring 20 minute races.

Renault Clio Cup:

Joining our tin tops at class D will be the all new iRacing Clio Cup – Fixed. This single make series will have 15 minute races starting on the hour every hour.

The Renault Clio Cup will also debut in the Production Car Challenge replacing the VW Jetta. This will give the car both fixed and open setup series to participate in.

Dallara Formula iR:

This series is undergoing a series structure revamp for Season 2 with the switch to 20 minute races using fixed setups. This change is in concert with a tire and aero update that addresses many of the complaints about how the car handled. Give it a whirl!

Supercars – Fixed:

This series is switching back to open setups while keeping the shorter race distances.
