Competition Company have deployed an update for the Rennsport Beta that includes a very decent number of fixes, tweaks, and also adds the Audi RS3 LMS, Hyundai Elantra N, Road Atlanta and Daytona International Speedway. The build also brings rolling starts, updated physics and more.

From what I have seen, this is possibly the biggest step forwards in the software since the Beta began back in June.
