    Yes, I'm not sure what to expect but I'm definitely interested in trying it out. But it's not something I see myself switching to as a main series.

    What is the heat racing they are talking about? Is that something like timed rally stages?

    They're talking about jumps. Does that mean this is a type of race Davey can't join?

    No, there will be signs before the jumps, signalling Mr. Rearendyou towards a de-tour so that he too can complete the course.

    These things are fun. They also dialed back the incident points a lot. You can wreck your car completely and still be at 0x after the race.

    I'm a bit meh about the Heat racing implementation, not sure what to think of it. I was expecting that these were done in parallel to each other. But they are done one by one. Depending on how you do in the races, you are currently sitting around about half of the session twiddling your thumbs.

    Also, on Phoenix, the qualify session will put you into the pits of the oval, not the starting location of the actual rally cross track. Turn left before the truck to enter the track.

    From an iRacing staffer:

    So it seems like it wasn't feasible.
