As announced a few weeks ago, Project CARS is making the transition to Steam as the newest Junior build is now available on Valve’s platform!
Instead of using the trusted launcher application, WMD members can now download their development builds of Project CARS within Steam.
A detailed instruction manual on how to get going with Project CARS & Steam is available to members here, the new build is available to all member levels – including Juniors!

* Fix for leaked lights from the lightning manager on shutdown
