NEW FOR FALL
The Fall Season includes a slight change to the rulebook. There are now a maximum of 85 points available to a driver per round in the Championship.
The Tiebreaker that featured in Gamers8 – a hotlap shootout for drivers to decide who goes through to the next race if equal on points in the standings - is back plus the Qualifying order is random instead of drivers knowing and having set turns.
There are also a few game updates new to the series, including adjusted track limits, car collision damage and a new penalty system for off-track invalidations.
