- WTCC Seat Leon

- WTCC BMW E90 320
- WTCC Honda Civic

- Fixed an issue where the grid positions were not based on qualifying performance of the drivers when doing Single Race without Qualifying.

The last 2 months i was only on AC. but after these updates ,I have set Sunrise on Mount panorama with Capri , the FFB is amazing, they make auto degrees on every car. Now all is perfect .
Long time ago i asked for AC physics and FFB, P.C. graphics and R3E sounds.
happy to see that R3E is slowly geting all of these .
Right now overall its the best for me. I will wait to see the next big AC update to.

Thanks Sector 3
