TOCA fans rejoice! Codemasters have released the following trailer focusing on the game’s Touring Car discipline.

Spliced with interviews of British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) racers talking about their love of the close contact motorsport, the trailer will no doubt go down well with older gamers who remember fondly the many hours wasted on the old TOCA Touring Car series on the PlayStation 1. It marks the first time since TOCA Race Driver 3 (2006) that the BTCC discipline has featured in the Codemasters GRID series.

According to the blog post, fans can expect the following from the Touring Cars section of Autosport:

  • Large grid sizes (up 16 cars offline, 12 players online)
  • Aggressive AI that won’t be afraid to attack or protect the racing line
  • Cars of similar or pre-defined specification
  • Multiple round races
  • Practice and Qualifying
  • Races held at day
  • Loads of trading paint!

The series will feature a number of categories each with their own range of cars, which shows that the Touring Car section of GRID is set to be a substantial element to the game.

GRID Autosport will be released on June 27th for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.


Playing games since I'd developed enough motor functions to hold a joystick. From Commodore 64 all the way through to the latest gen. Favourite games to play are FPS games and anything with a deep and compelling story and a world that draws you in. I also enjoy writing, film making and playing bass in whatever band will have me :)
