    I try to sum up here the data about the patch.
    If someone has other infos, he can post here too.

    So, the content is for sure :

    - a new open wheel car (Armaroli, F3...?)
    - correction of bugs (qualifications and warm-up)
    - use of online skins
    - use of G27 LEDs
    - 6 new layouts
    (Brasilia - Infield Course
    Curitiba - Outer Course
    Jacarepaguá - Curva Sul
    Interlagos - Café Chicane
    Londrina - 2009 Long Course
    Velopark - 2011 Course)
    - upgrade of the handling and breaking.

    Coming soon, very soon ;-)

    Great thanks for the info, much appreciated and looking forward to the patch.

    However, what about brake bias adjustment during a race?
    Currently you can't adjust brake bias in a race, but can during practice. This is a bug that I reported to Reiza support, but I can't find the email that I sent and who responded, but they did confirm this was a bug and would be resolved in the patch.

    Unless this is what you mean by:
    Adjusted parc ferme rules to allow fuel and brake adjustments before race;

    Just want to make sure this didn't get left out :)

    Thanks

    Can you elaborate on this, I just looked in my plr file and I don't see anything about brake bias being locked for race and adjustable for practice. As I said the email back from Reiza did confirm this was a bug in park ferme settings or something?

    Ramon - no, Stock Car only ever races the external ring.

    Keith - yes, it will be sorted in the patch so you can adjust brake bias from the cockpit in races.

    I have a question regarding the patch. If I turn off tire wear, will it turn off tire wear for the ai cars also?
