Driveclub update v1.2.1 is now available to download on PS4 and includes a new sprint mode and Elite Driver levels.

Confirmed via the Driveclub Facebook page, the latest update awards players with the Renault R.S. 01 when they reach driver level 66. There’s also new sprint variations, general improvements and enhancements to vehicle performance.
