Didn't see mention of it, but Build 261's out now. It's a patch on 249/254, so use the Launcher to update.
For the first time, I took the Lotus 49 out at Rouen...I usually run at Imola in the FA's...and all I can say is wow! Set the time of the day to 10AM, made it lightly cloudy going to clearing and ran some laps. Graphically, it is impressive as hell in either DX mode! The tree shadows on the road really make you have to concentrate and really give it a different visual feel than any other racing sim I've tried.
I still don't get the tire feedback I'd like to and that might be due to my settings, but that Cosworth Lotus is a ball, and can be a challenge, to drive. If you haven't tried that combination and ran GPL back in the day, give it a try and have a smile put on your face. While the Lotus 49 doesn't have the same characteristics as the GPL one did, it's still a lot of fun and what a view.
