When you’re receiving a new part in the garage, it’s now easier to spot. We removed the feed that showed your new items on the right side of the screen. Instead, there’s now a yellow banner saying “new” next to the category and the item.

They have added more variation to race intros, during both day and night races, as well as more victory celebration animations to enjoy when crossing the finish line.
