Notes from the developer:

IMPORTANT! The latest physics modifications to GT3 / GT4 cars require a setup reset to default in setup UI to take effect - no need to delete all your settings, just go into the setup screen and click "Reset to Default" when choosing any of the new GT3 / GT4 cars added in v1.0.5.0 (other cars haven´t had setup range changes so shouldn´t need a reset).

IMPORTANT! As previously announced, with the release of the Nurburgring DLC Pack, the Nurburgring layouts included in the previous update are now only available for owners of the DLC or the packages that include it.

Our next game update towards the end of the month will add layouts combining variants of the modern track with the Nordschleife. Next year we also plan to include an historical version of the track to this pack, with no additional charge to those that already own it.

A really nice rendition of the green hell some parts feel narrower than I thought from other games but adds to the challenge, just ran a few laps with Porsche club car great fun.
Not tried sp yet to see if the AI is better but will try tomorrow.
Looks like a very good update from the hard working guys at Reiza.

Ah I see the Nurburgring DLC today - wasnt there yesterday. Was thinking of buying the whole season pack for 89.99 bucks...
Steam glitched a bit with the adding of the DLC to the game storepage itself yesterday, it seemed, so it was just avaiable to get by direct link...

A good rendition of the Green Hell, however I can't help but notice it feels a bit lifeless. There is a complete lack of spectators (even in race mode) with only a few cars at Brünchen. Adding a few spectators and gazebos around at various locations such as Brünchen, Hatzenbach and Breitscheid would really lift the atmosphere of the track and make it feel more 'alive'.

I'm pretty sure Reiza will continue to add to the track bringing it to life as they've always done to others.

I couldn't care less about this track...I can drive it in AC. But yes, I am going to purchase it nevertheless only for driving on it with the M1 and the upcoming historic version :)

I'm sure they will, but its still a bit disappointing. Tracks added to the game for free I can understand been a bit rough around the edges on release as they are finished and polished as and when the time and resources allow.
But for paid DLC (regardless of developer or game) I expect a finished and polished product, not a product that is 70% finished and patched multiple times post release to complete the remaining 30%.
