There’s a lot of new content from KT Racing as the free WRC 10 October update adds new events with the Renties Ypres Rally Belgium and three historic examples to try out with the original drivers, co-drivers and cars.
The Belgian event replaced Rally GB on the calendar in 2021, and was won by Thierry Neuville in his Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC. Before then it ran from 1965 until pausing in 2020 due to Covid, as part of the European, Inertcontinental and Belgian series, with previous winners including Freddy Loix, Walter Rohrl, Tony Pond and Jimmy McRae.
And it should be challenging, with narrow and winding roads lined with posts and ditches, and often slippery conditions as drivers attempting to cut corners tend to bring dust and mud onto the tarmac surface.
The WRC 10 October update also brings three new historic events to the title, with the the 1980 Rally Portugal with Walter Röhrl and Christian Geistdörfer in their Fiat 131 Abarth, the 1981 Rally Finland with Ari Vatanen and David Richards in their Ford Escort MkII 1800 and finally, the 2017 Rally Portugal with Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia in their Ford Fiesta WRC.
It also brings an improved co-driver experience, with a Pacenote chart and new user interface allowing you to do a better job of helping your driver navigate each route, and various fixes and improvements.
