Quick Races Announcement

Today we are delighted to announce Quick Races, a new feature that is sure to transform the way people play iGP Manager. Coming soon, it is currently in testing and being refined for public release. Quick Races will make it possible to race any time against anyone, including managers in other leagues. Until now, it was only possible to race within a league at the allotted race start time.

Some eagle-eyed managers spotted clues that this feature was coming. Did you ever wonder why the tooltip on contracts says “Only league races are counted”? Because we had always intended to add Quick Races!

There will be two types of quick race lobby:

  • Public – get racing within just 60 seconds (chat will not be available in this mode)

  • Private – invite friends for a private race (chat will be available in this mode)

The initial release will focus mainly on the ability to have pick-up-and-play fun, with short, fast-paced races. The focus here is adding gameplay people have been asking for on mobiles and tablets in particular, where people want to race on iGP Manager from the moment they join and without any constraints on when they race. That wish will now be a reality. Over time, after release, we will expand upon the format, adding more customisation options for private lobbies, such as longer race durations.

There will be almost unlimited scope for the development of Quick Races over time, so this is truly a game-changer.

A full and detailed feature announcement will be published alongside the release of Quick Races.

The testers who currently have access to this mode are absolutely loving it, and they’re almost as excited as we are to release it to the wider public in the next few weeks!

I will repeat what Jack said above, when I was, and still am, Beta Testing this feature I can tell you that it is extremely fun and exciting and I think is definitely going to improve this game greatly and add to the already existent excitement of this game.

Connor Scott asked what i was going to ask about the cars etc. Will it also affect the drivers health and contracts etc etc? I hope it does bring in some new players but the ones of us that run 100% leagues will have to work hard to get teams to run in there league as they only want the quick stuff. Will be interesting to see how it all pans out.
