Studio 397 released a new build today, improving their rFactor 2 simulation with the following highlighted items:

– Automatic Wipers & Lights Option
– Sunflare Improvements
– Auto Exposure Rework (should fix overexposed cockpit lighting)
– Replay Monitor Stutter Fix

Here are the screenshots they added to the post showing those features. Maybe someone can tell me the relevance of the pit garages screenshot though? Is it a track preview? Mundorf Mineralölhandels GmbH und Co. KG are a German company (you can see them on the orange fuel stations). Maybe I have missed that on a track already released though…

You can see the release notes for the new public build below. A new ‘release candidate’ build will soon be available to those who have opted in to receive them
