The Honda-powered edition of the Super Formula SF23 is now available on iRacing! It joins the Toyota-powered version of the car, which was released with the deployment of 2023 Season 4 content earlier this month. Both the Honda and Toyota versions of the SF23 are included in the same content package, so users who have already purchased the Toyota will receive the Honda automatically, and users who purchase the SF23 moving forward will receive both cars.
Debuting in the 2023 Super Formula season, the SF23 is the third open-wheel car developed by the Italian manufacturer Dallara for Japan’s premier open-wheel racing series. From a visual standpoint, the SF23 evolves from its predecessor by introducing new aerodynamics designed to produce more overtaking. From a sustainability one, the new design reduces carbon dioxide emissions in raw materials and manufacturing by 75% thanks to new, natural materials, while even the Yokohama tires used on the car use significantly more renewable raw materials while maintaining the performance of previous tires.
Super Formula cars are powered by high-performance, turbocharged 2.0-liter I4 engines built by Honda or Toyota, each capable of producing more than 540 horsepower. Each is equipped with a push-to-pass overtaking system that allows for up to 200 seconds of additional fuel burn in each race.
In addition, iRacers can still take advantage of the SF23 release to watch the conclusion of the 2023 Super Formula season on SFgo, the series’ official streaming platform. Just two rounds remain in the 2023 season, a doubleheader at Suzuka International Racing Course on October 27-29, while Ritomo Miyata leads the standings over Liam Lawson by just eight points. iRacers who purchase the SF23 through October 25 will receive their free trial access on October 27, just in time for the finale, and free trial access will continue through December 6.
