There have been six months since the last VDrift release -- an open-source drift racing game -- but that time has not gone to waste. VDrift 2007-03-23 is now available and it contains a horde of changes and other improvements. There are improvements to the game racing, display options, the heads up display, new tracks, and new cars. There is also a benchmarking mode now in this game (more information on that to come soon). More information on VDrift is available here.
