iRacing will add Motorsport Arena Oschersleben to a list of well over 100 officially licensed tracks available on the world’s premier sim racing service with the release of the 2022 Season 4 build next week. The German track will feature four layouts—Grand Prix, Moto, and two shorter layouts utilizing parts of the track—upon release, and will be purchasable by all iRacers for use in public races, hosted and league sessions, time attack, and test drive gameplay modes.
Motorsport Arena Oschersleben became the fourth permanent racing facility to open in Germany when its doors first opened in 1997. A longtime host of FIA GT, DTM, and international touring car events, it will welcome the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series for the first time in 2023, and currently serves as the host of the FIM Sidecar World Championship for motorcycles.
Oschersleben’s Grand Prix layout clocks in at 2.297 miles (3.696 km) and gets going with a lengthy frontstretch before a hard left turn leads into the sweeping right-hand Hotel corner. The hard braking before Turn 1 can often cause incidents between drivers at the start of races, so extra care is required to get the best possible start. Our Grand Prix layout replaces the abrupt left-hander with a less harsh version designed to keep two-wheel racers safer.
Motorsport Arena Oschersleben will be a part of numerous series in iRacing’s 2022 Season 3 Week 13 calendar, including the Shiny New Shakedown with the previously announced Porsche Mission R, as well as the 13th Week GT3 Challenge – Fixed, Ferrari GT3 Challenge, and Porsche Cup Series. Following Week 13, Oschersleben will be present on numerous series calendars from 2022 Season 4 forward.
