    No-one posted this, so I thought I would:
    Not sure if it applies if you don't have Race On... this was posted in RR's Race On forum, and the download in Steam was listed as Race On too.

    The update was announced in the Bug report thread.

    Have to say that I have not seen any update come in yet, and haven't been able to look into it further. Had a really busy weekend. I shall look into it this evening to see what it is involved, and if it is an auto update, or a downloadeble patch.

    Thanks for posting it Ross :)

    Steam downloaded a Race On update a day or two ago.
    Barely noticed it, there was just a Steam notification when it was done it in the bottom right of the screen. Easy to miss.

    Have they been anymore specific as to the 'slight adjustment to the tyres grip properties'?

    Last night when I fired up my game Race On needed to be installed so I'm assuming the update was done. My girlfriend and I both drove the C30 and the it does feel better than it did few days ago. There is better weight transfer when cornering, it doesn't feel as twitchy as it did before.

    My girlfriend noticed it more than I because she drives the C30 more than I do. As for the other updates, I have not noticed much.

    It's an auto-update. As Senad said, all you get is a little pop-up notification when it's complete. If you miss it you'd never know that anything had happened. There's no announcement on the news page and the in-game version number remains the same. I don't really get it to be honest... all other patches have been for Race 07 as a whole, not for a specific expansion. Is the tyre adjustment only applied to RO classes and no others?

    No specifics. It's been asked in the patch announcement thread on RR, but no-one has bothered answering.

    Indeed, it is an auto patch.Dangerous if you have several installations running, with Steam put OFFline.

    Remember to update the game by putting steam online until the icon pops up Steam is finished downloading. If you have multiple installs like me (laptop, desktop downstairs for watching and testing purposes, gaming PC upstairs and dedicated server) to put them ALL online for a moment, so you will not have different game versions installed :) Especially rhe dedicated servers, since they are mostly in offline mode when hosted from home addresses.

    I haven't tried the difference in handling the C30 f.i. Haven't been able to find some details about it as well. Those descriptions at the RR forum are very vague indeed. I shall see if I can get some more information about it.

    Not surprised many missed the update as it was just a 4.4 MB download.

    I also agree SimBin have done a poor job communicating what the patch did via the RO Steam page. SimBin can be very hit and miss at times!
