New User Interface, Changes and Deadlines for Season 54
New User Interface, Changes and Deadlines for Season 5411.11.2023 14:00:00
The new UI is here! Read for more details on it, as well as to know more about the changes we’ve made to the game for season 54 :)
Once more, here is your seasonal My Racing Career news article with all new things coming to the game. This one is very special for me personally, for the staff and for the entire game. After announcing it in March, we are very proud to announce that the new user interface is in a very advanced stage of development and is now ready to be used.
You can now access the new My Racing Career by clicking HERE.
As we stated in previous articles, the new UI has been designed to be compatible with PC and mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc). However, even though you can already use it, it is still in beta version. This means that it is largely finished and perfectly playable, but it may contain bugs or be incomplete, so we would like to entrust you with the task of helping us get it ready for a final release.
For this, we have created a form that you should use both to report any bug you find and to suggest improvements, either visual or functional. What we want to achieve with this is to have the best possible product for you and for future new users of the game.
So, simply use the new interface as you would with the old one, except for some pages that are not ready yet, such as all those related to Formula 1 team management or race broadcasts (qualifying does work with the new timing). You will also have to keep logging in via the current UI for a while to keep your daily streaks going on. Apart from the visual change, we have changed a few things and added a few others, but I don't want to give you any spoilers and leave it up to you ;) we are very happy with the result, so we hope you like it as well!
Moving on to other headlines...
DRIVER HELMETS FOR EACH CAREER PATH
This is just an aesthetic improvement without much importance but which also needed a change. From now on there will be five different driver helmet models, three for the circuit path (current one included), and one each for the motorcycle and rally career paths. This means that you will have three different helmets depending on the type of races you compete in, apart from being able to select which of them will be your default helmet (the one shown up on the driver’s profile).
CART IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR VETERAN DRIVERS
As we announced in the previous MRC News article, you can now sign up for the CART series! Even if we couldn’t do it as we wished, with you selecting the tracks that would be part of the calendar, we have tried to make it as classic as possible. The rest of the details also try to be as faithful as possible to how the championship used to be, with a variety of chassis and engines to choose from and the scoring system of its golden age. The minimum age for participation has finally been set at 35, which we think is more than reasonable as it is a series for veterans. There is no career path restriction, so we hope that those of you with drivers of that age will sign up and have a go at what was the pinnacle of North American open-wheel motorsport during the last decades of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st. Fun is guaranteed.
ADJUSTMENTS TO TOURING CARS
Despite being a recurring theme, the feedback you give us regarding GT3, DTM, TCR and Supercars cars is still not ideal. Therefore, we have been deeply analysing why making minimal changes makes such big differences, leading us to include more parameters in the calculation of slipstream and overtaking distances. The changes we are making should lead to more realistic racing in terms of the above, however, we hope you understand that the new model we have implemented is new, redundantly, and that we are the first to understand it and fine-tune it as much as possible. This also does not mean that the races will be either full-grid relays or processions.
MINOR CHANGES AND ANOTHER NEW SERIES
From next season we will have a new rally series, the African Rally Series, with the same characteristics as the other continental championships in this career path. On the other hand, the following modifications have been made:
- F1, Indy, Indy Junior, WRS1/2/3, Moto1/2/3, British SBK, Superbformula and Stock Car Brasil have been (or will be) adapted to their real 2024 calendars.
- Paul Ricard has been replaced by Mexico City in the F2 World calendar.
- The calendars of the European Rally Series and the Spanish Formula 4 have been revamped.
- Stock Car Brazil will be adapted to its real format, with two races per Grand Prix and a reverse top 10 in the second race. The points system will also be modified.
And that's it for today. During this year, the main focus of time and resources has been on the new interface, and as it is almost ready, we are starting to focus on other new features that will significantly affect the game experience. That's why I'd like to take this opportunity to encourage you to make your suggestions, either below in the comments section or in the Suggestions post in the Worldwide forum. We really appreciate it if they are well detailed so that we can fully understand them. Just keep in mind that we have some 'megaprojects' announced in previous articles that were on standby until now ;)
At the same time, we expect as much feedback as possible regarding the interface, preferably in the Google Form we provided you earlier.
To conclude, we want to remind you a few things:

I'm looking forward to getting used to the new UI. It looks great!
Some parts are great but some others are more confused and the green color is too flashing. Contrast should be improved as was the case with the old interface.
This new GUI needs to be tuned.
Thanks the job!
There is no auction page.
In training, you can't see how much % you need to gain to get a skill point.
When will the owners menu in F1 be ready?
On the team profile page, rounding to integers in the characteristics of the F1 car is very inconvenient.
I prefer red line too. I also like thicker lines for driver/car attributes more than the thin one we have in new version too.
I also agree for the training part to continue to see the gap to get a skill point.
Just reminder, don't forget to use google form as well in order to share with us your feedback Ofc, comments below this article and suggestions topic are more than welcomed as well
Doesn't appear to be a link for voting points. Is this feature being discontinued?
Quick reminder, don't forget what is mentioned in paragraphs 3 and 5 (sorry for the caps, it's just a way to highlight it):
"However, even though you can already use it, it is still in BETA version. This means that it is largely finished and perfectly playable, BUT it may contain bugs or be INCOMPLETE"
"Simply use the new interface as you would with the old one, EXCEPT FOR SOME PAGES THAT ARE NOT READY YET, such as all those related to Formula 1 team management or race broadcasts"
Auctions, owners menu (F1 team management features) and voting points page are not ready yet. As a warning, some pages, like those of circuit info or honors will redirect you to the home page. That is not a bug, but simply that they are not ready yet either.
Still, we want to thank you for the first hours of the beta. The Google Form is getting a lot of responses and I am already writing to some of you to get even more details on your reports. Remember that it is not only bugs but also suggestions, and some of them are very interesting. So keep exploring it and as soon as the creator sees everything he will start working on solutions
