Update v1.02

We are announcing a new feature to help improve drivability, it’s the Driving Assistent and will help you keep on track, limiting the speed you turn to wrong side of the track, it will be on by default, but you can always turn it off, if you have skills.
We also have improved some minor bugs on the game, and we were able to reduce the size of the game, also reducing memory consumption.
