GRID Autosport - V8 and Bathurst confirmed
Codemasters have revealed a new trailer for GRID Autosport, showing off the Touring Car discipline.
Aussie fans will be overjoyed at the inclusion of Bathurst as one of the racing circuits, as well as the inclusion of the V8 racing cars, particularly the Fords and Holdens.
Touring Cars was a popular style of racing from Codemasters’ classic TOCA series and to bring this style of racing into GRID Autosport, Codemasters has consulted with drivers to authentically recreate the handling of the cars and bring alive this unique racing experience. Matt Neal, three-time winner of the BTCC and one of the drivers who has lent his expertise to the Codemasters development team, explains the enduring appeal of this style of racing in the video, “It’s the cut and thrust, it’s the physicality of it all, getting your elbows out and getting stuck in. You need to know when to be aggressive at the right point and you’ve got to be very wary of who you’ve got around you.”
Touring Cars represented in the game include both modern and classic cars. Contemporary examples include the Honda Civic Touring Car, Ford Focus ST Touring Car, the Holden VF Commodore and its rival the Ford Falcon FG plus many more. Classic content includes the Nissan 1991 (R32) Skyline GT-R Group A and the Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth Group A, two cars which fought out dramatic battles on track, plus the MINI Miglia and more. Touring races are held on the game’s real-world circuits, including the world famous Brands Hatch and Bathurst tracks, and offer players truly dramatic, immediate and intense racing.
In GRID Autosport’s huge career, gamers will specialise in their favourite racing discipline or conquer them all; players will feel the aggression of the pack in Touring Cars, manage tyre wear and race into the night in Endurance events, race Open-Wheel cars with precision, show car control in Tuner events and react on the fly in Street races. Each unique category features series dedicated to different classes, including Touring Cars, Hypercars, Endurance GT Cars, Prototypes, Single-Seaters, Super Modified vehicles, Drift cars and many, many more. Bursting with content, GRID Autosport features over 100 routes across 22 incredible locations and the world’s most exciting contemporary and classic high-performance racing cars to collect, tune and upgrade.
GRID Autosport will be hitting shelves in Australia and New Zealand on June 26th.
