Paint Shop

The Global SimRacing Channel sponsor logo has been updated.

AI Drivers have improved their racing skills with the Touring Car Class Cars.

Track Info

Fixed an issue where the Track Conditions information on the Info tab in the Simulator had disappeared.

Fixed a variety of issues with the starting state of the power unit, including:

    • Not starting Sessions in “Attack” mode when it was selected.
    • Starting a Race Session with either Qualifying modes selected resulted in the “Balanced” mode being selected.
    • Starting a Qualifying Session with any of the Race modes selected resulted in a random Qualifying mode being selected.

      Steering wheel lights have had their RPM adjusted to more closely align with the Simulator rev lights.
