A new track sadly did not make into this month’s content update, but two new layouts did. Both are part of the Blue Moon Bay Speedway, come with a reverse version each and run through the infield. Coincidentally, they are named:

“Blue Moon Bay Speedway – Infield A” Layout (Reverse: “Infield A II” Layout)
“Blue Moon Bay Speedway – Infield B” Layout (Reverse: “Infield B II” Layout)
