Studio 397 released a couple of track content items late yesterday as well as some paid GTE updates. While these track updates are free, they also have a number of items on sale during the Steam Summer Sale that you can check out.

Silverstone has been updated with new shaders, track side objects and a new layout. Portland International Raceway (that I believe was last seen in sim racing with NASCAR Racing 3, but I haven’t finished indexing my sims for content yet) was also released for free.

Silverstone v2.02

Portland International Raceway v0.91

Portland is best remembered by me as being the scene of Mark Blundell’s remarkable victory in the wet back in 1997, with spectacular commentary from Ben Edwards on Eurosport:
