TORCS version 1.3.3 is available for download. The most important changes are new content (two tracks, new car), a pure command line mode (for AI training and testing) and bug/security fixes, hit Read More below to review the full set of changes.
The security fixes are relevant if you download and install content from the internet, otherwise they are not urgent. Nonetheless, I recommend everybody to update anyway.
