Funselektor have released a new patch for art of rally that includes a terrific number of fixes and quality of life improvements for the beautiful overhead racing title, as well as a new Australian DLC that I already previewed, adding six stages, a free roam area, four vehicles and two songs to the title.

The DLC can be purchased on Steam.
