DescriptionThe World Touring Car Championship features saloon cars, essentially modified from those you would ordinarily drive, racing on purpose-built circuits around the world, although primarily in Europe. BMW and SEAT cars usually lead the way, although Alfa Romeo, Chevrolet, Honda and Peugeot are also represented. The makers of the GTR series have brought it to life in this simulation.
Controls are designed to be realistic - the cars will usually go out of control if you attempt to steer while accelerating and braking, and you must use cadence braking (dabbing the brakes and then releasing them in succession, rather than one big lunge on them) to negotiate the turns. The Puebla track in Mexico is especially slippery, just as it was in the real race meeting.
Numerous parts of the car can be damaged in contact, and running over debris can damage your car. The car can be covered in dirt, rain and even by insects during a race, but you have functional windscreen wipers to clear things.
The full season and individual races are backed by a Time Attack mode. Each round features two races of around 20 minutes, with the same 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 points system as Formula One. The second race's starting grid takes the finishing order from race one and reverses the top 8, so the driver who finished 8th is on pole for race 2. The presentation of the racing resembles Eurosport's coverage graphics.
