The detailed list of what The DRE features

Feedback for a maximized race performance

The DRE will work as an enhanced spotter detecting cars around you in specific situations like:

  • Traffic when you exit the pits
  • When other cars exit the pits and you are approaching the pit exits out on track
  • Traffic when you are off track and want to get back on track
  • Faster cars approaching from behind
  • Warns you about relative low iRating and/or Safety Rating drivers
  • Warns you about drivers who you have marked as unsafe in the past

Your own weather reporter

The DRE is able to monitor the weather conditions changing around you. Using Text-To-Speech voice it provides you with various updates on conditions like:

  • weather reports
  • specific weather data for example wind direction
  • and weather changes to stay informed eg. in case the track temperature drops

Compare your driving to the ones around you

The DRE provides you with updates when your position changes during practices, qualifications and races.

Get valuable insights to where you lose or gain times compared to your competition.

You can ask for details on the car ahead and behind you position wise and on track near you.

For example, The DRE can give you the iRating and Safety Rating of the driver, the name of the team which the driver is in, last and best lap times – and these times compared to yours as delta times. Furthermore, The DRE alerts you when your close opponents pit during races.

Handles fuel and tires

The DRE is capable of properly warning you about fuel levels. Remember the iRacing spotter telling you to “pit now for fuel“, when you still have 3 laps left in the tank? With The DRE your misery is over, as it warns you on the last lap when you absolutely have to come in!

Furthermore, you can ask for current fuel level, fuel burn rate per minute, fuel spent on the previous lap, and as an average of the 5 previous laps excluding out- and in laps. You can even let DRE automatically fill up your fuel tank, which will fill exactly what is required to go to the end of the race.

Add to the fuel feedback: It can tell you how much fuel is needed to finish the current session and how much you need to take on in the pit stop. You can even tell The DRE to add specific amounts of fuel and set tire pressures up and down several clicks and change tires for all, front, rear, left, right, or single tires!


The DRE | Features | Auto Fuel

Gear shift alerts

Let The DRE alert you when you need to shift gear in two ways:


  1. Automatically defined rev limit thresholds determined by iRacing’s rev limit
  2. Manually set rev limit threshold per gear (gears 1 to 7)


Make sure your car is operating perfect. The DRE warns you and can give information from various sensors on the race car:


  • Throttle, Brake and Clutch percentage pushed. Alerts if pedals are hanging
  • Check fuel, oil and water pressure and temperatures, so your car will stay in the optimal performance window
  • Check if steering wheel angle is bent
  • Check engine voltage
  • Warns when you speed in pit lane
  • Alerts when you engage pit speed limiter
