The ultimate motorsport challenge awaits you – albeit from the relative safety of your sofa.
‘WRC7' –’ the latest installment of the official FIA World Rally Championship video game – is due to land in a matter of weeks and this time it features a 911 GT3 RS RGT.
This is the first time such as car has been available in the WRC series, where slavish accuracy to performance and handling characteristics will guarantee a sizeable but tempting challenge to expert gamers and Porsche-philes alike.
Competing in the FIA R-GT championship behind the wheel of the real-life Porsche 911 GT3 RS RGT, Romain Dumas has already won the first two rounds at the Monte-Carlo Rally and the Tour de Corse, two events from the WRC calendar.
“It’s a great honour for the team and me to be represented for the first time in an official WRC video game,” states Dumas. “We were the first to prepare a 911 GT3 RS RGT for the R-GT Championship, and I’m proud to take part in the return of grand touring cars to the highest level of rally competition. The Porsche is obviously distinct from the World Rally Cars which compete in the WRC’s headline category. For the public, I think it brings diversity, elegance, and glamour. For me, behind the wheel, it’s an amazing challenge. It’s a symbol of passion and extra enjoyment for WRC fans,” concludes Dumas.
‘WRC7’ will be available for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC and goes on sale in the autumn. Tackle every conceivable surface in all conceivable weathers, but this time do it with rear wheel drive and the engine out back.
The developers of the racing simulation game have been working closely with engineers in Weissach.
