Reiza Studios have been busy once again, deploying another new hotfix update for the Automobilista 2 racing simulation.

The new hotfix build, deployed on Tuesday evening addresses a number of aspects of the simulation during this stage of ongoing development, focusing on fixes and tweaks around hot topic subjects such as AI, physics and force feedback behaviours within the title.

On the content front, the new update also introduces the latest season of the Brazilian StockCar Series - the premium national championship in Brazil and some of the most enjoyable cars in modern sim racing. The new 2021 content has been made available for free to owners of the simulation.

Excellent work by Reiza. I am somewhat peeved the 2021 content will be available for everyone after I had bought the season pass, but if this gets more people to try it out, I'll accept it. A big plus is the 2020-2021 season pass has been converted into a 2020-2022 pass - so maybe those of us that have supported the devs from the beginning are going to get something extra :)

Porsche GT3 need to be fixed, fastest than all GT3, and the same with Group C, Porsche 962 is overpowered, you can nothing to do on straights. Allweather conditions tyres not working you had to choose manually wet tyres. Nice to see more content, but still missing Floripa track.

I may be missing something, but I thought all-weather tyres are meant to perform less well in the rain than dedicated wet tyres. IRL lapping with all-weather tyres is a good safety net when conditions are variable but switching to rain tyres when the track is properly wet is essential. I don't know how this effect carries over to AMS2 or any other sim as I've not really thought about it.
What is the community's take on this?

Nice update!
Patiently waiting for the M6 audio update, 125cc Kart terminal damage after a couple of laps and the crazy shaking in the menu to be fixed.

Man, hope these changes to the stock car actually change them A LOT. Currently they are, imo, the worst car of the game, it's like a bus with a lot of torque.
