Race Pro title update tackles a laundry list of issues

After revealing the patch last month, SimBin has finally updated its exclusive Xbox 360 simulation, Race Pro. Some of the tweaks include: ending a game crashing bug when 12 players joined or left a session; allowing players with DLC to start sessions with those who don't; and some other stuff that would make this a really long paragraph.

More general changes include the enhancement of vehicle deformation and an attempt to offset online leaderboard shenanigans. Check out the long list of changes after the break.
