The second 'Content Update' patch for Assetto Corsa has just gone live, adding a trio of mid-engined British performance cars and two new track variations to the open beta PC racing sim.

Flying St George's Cross for us Brits in Assetto Corsa are three of the country's most critically-acclaimed mid-engined performance cars in recent years: the McLaren MP4-12C, the Lotus Evora S and the Lotus Exige S Roadster.

Two new tracks have been added to locations already featured in the AC open beta: Silverstone's Grand Prix circuit is now available to hot lap on, and anyone already feeling a sense of deja vu with only one purpose-built drift circuit now have Vallelunga's Club-Drift venue to have some oversteery fun on.

On top of more content being added, the patch also adds more technical details to the open beta itself, with our love for pretty, realistic graphics here at Team VVV automatically drawing us to the "improved reflection shading" point in the patch notes (the list of changes in full can be seen below):
