New head movement patch released!

Lee Bowden has released his latest patch, which enables head movement of the driver and computer opponents. He has called it the "Bobblehead Patch". It is considered yet another breakthrough for GPL. For the first time, you will be able to see Jim Clark lean into the corner, getting his head thrown back from the might of his Cosworth V8 powered Lotus 49, or thrown forward from the stopping power of his Girling brake discs. Lean from left to right in the Laguna Seca corkscrew in your mighty McLaren M8F Can-Am car, and have fun doing so!
