Advanced command and feedback system for Voice Attack built exclusively for the iRacing Simulator. Use your voice to control iRacing with over 170 commands and listen to the vital performance information The DRE provides you with.
DRE is the best thing for sim racing since virtual reality! I am loving it!!! The ability to collect critical information in real time, maintain focus during races, and make better decisions = DRE is a competitive advantage.
It also eliminated what I considered to be the only negative of VR which was to be able to interact with the software and other racers efficiently. This does that in spades!Kane Lasky
I just wanted to take the time to come back and rave about DRE. I used it for the 24 hours of Daytona and I can’t begin to quantify how useful it was to me. Being able to ask what time it was, what my fuel situation was, who was ahead and behind me, having it help me with brake bias and traction control adjustments mid run…it was amazing and I don’t know that I would have enjoyed the 24 as much if it wasn’t for DRE. I ran two three hour stints and DRE was there for me the entire time.
This really is top notch stuff and I don’t race in VR without it anymore.Matthew A Holmes

Speak out commands and listen to The DRE in Voice Attack. Command just by voice!
The DRE works as a plugin for Voice Attack allowing you to give advanced commands via Voice Attack to iRacing
iRacing receives commands and sends data back to The DRE. The DRE picks up warnings and alerts and send these via Voice Attack back to you via Text-To-Speech.
The detailed list of what The DRE features
The DRE will work as an enhanced spotter detecting cars around you in specific situations like:
The DRE is able to monitor the weather conditions changing around you.
Via voice it will provide you with various updates on conditions like:
The DRE provides you with updates when your position changes during practices, qualifications and races. 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.
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 inlaps.
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!
Let The DRE alert you when you need to shift gear in two ways:
Make sure your car is operating perfect. The DRE warns you and can give information from various sensors on the race car:
