Following on from the latest patch, we’ve now seen iRacing 2020 Season 2 Patch 8 Hotfix 1 released. And although it doesn’ have many major changes, it does tweak the feel of changing gears for one of the most popular cars in the game, and some graphics issues with three circuits.
iRacing 2020 Season 2 Patch 8 Hotfix 1 Notes:
