Released late on Friday evening this Automobilista 2 update from Reiza adds the Nurburgring Nordschleife, tweaks AI behavior, and updates GT, Stock Car and Prototype physics.

Their next update is due towards the end of November and will add layouts combining variants of the modern track with the Nordschleife. Next year they plan to include a historic version of the track to this pack, with no additional charge to those that already own it.

Notes:

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.

Build notes below screenshot.
