Slightly Mad Studios smash hit racing game Project Cars has just received its 9th patch via the Steam network for owners of the PC version of the game. With a release across console due next week, players of the game have found an extensive list of improvements and fixes for the WMD-powered title including a much needed improvement to the previously uninspiring sounds of the Ford V8 Supercar recently added to the game. Road America AI has also received some attention and single player racers should be treated to a more challenging battle after the update. For those who prefer their racing against fellow humans, feel free to hop on over to the PCARS Racing Club and check out one of the many club race events held every week. The PC patch is available to download on Steam now.

Formula Renault 3.5 – Raised collision mesh and adjusted default setup for better curb behaviour. Adjusted various other setup items to make player drivability better.

Slight improvements in available grip through moving them into better optimum heat/grip range. AI speeds changed to match. McLaren F1 GTR – Fixed an issue where parts of the car would clip through other parts when damaged. Tracks Road America – New race line and corridor tweaking.
