Grid Autosport will recreate the realities of Touring Car discipline

New, 8 comments

A new trailer for Grid Autosport showcases one of the five styles of racing known as Touring Car discipline, with a look at how this will be experienced in-game.

The video, released this week from Codemasters, features Touring Car racing drivers explaining what players need to successfully recreate this discipline. Drivers including 2013 BTCC Champion Andrew Jordan from Pirtek Racing, Team Dynamics' Matt Neal and Motorbase Performance's eight-time touring car title winner Fabrizio Giovanardi are featured throughout.

Grid Autosport is slated to launch July 24 on PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Xbox 360. The game will draw from Codemasters' TOCA Touring Car series and will incorporate features based on community feedback collected from fans of the Grid franchise, professional racers and experts from U.K.-based magazine Autosport. Like its predecessors, the game will be "all about the race," according to a press statement.

Grid Autosport will feature a career mode in which players can dedicate themselves to one racing discipline or challenge themselves in all of them. This includes several different mini-modes such as endurance and tuner events, as well as touring cars and street races. The title includes 100 routes across 22 locations for racing.
