Release notes:
- a clean installation is strong recommended
- replays and setups are not compatible with the previous versions

Please note that mods must be updated because the physics data format has been changed.

Few minor things I found. No collision on the Armco inside the far hairpin at Hjoles. There's a weird alpha image ghosting into the wire mesh/windscreen of the 410 non-wing sprint. Still can't use the sprint car due to show stopping amount of ODE crashes. But that wasn't listed as a fix, so I half expected it.

Physics format changes?  Just the tyre type layout in the CFG?  Or is there more to it?

Thank you for the report.
Could you please post a screen of the "windscreen" of the sprint cars? It shouldn't give problems, because it's a mesh and not an image.

The main physics data format changes are:
- tyres data format
- collision

The new, optional, parameters are:
- stagger
- spacers
- lever ratio between push-rod and spring
- wing lateral area
- wing optimal lateral angle of attack
- default asymmetrical setup

Could not replicate just now.  Upon further review it may have been the tear off texture that had a wire crossed.  This was after about 10 crashes/restarts of the game, so I'm guessing it was just down to dumb luck.

Thanks for the information.
