Codemasters has pulled the wraps off the entire selection of touring cars available in GRID Autosport.
Split into eight separate categories, the sixteen tin-top racers in GRID Autosport make up a diverse range of vehicles, from tiny Mini Miglia Challenge-spec Mini Coopers to the Honda Civics and Ford Focus STs you see compete in the BTCC, and even big 'ole Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore utes from Down Under.
The official announcement on the Codemasters Blog also revealed what to expect from GRID Autosport's touring car races, such as multiple-round races (like the format for the BTCC), "aggressive AI", grid sizes of up to 16 cars offline (up to 12 in online races), races with cars of comparable performance, and practice and qualifying sessions.
An accompanying promo trailer for GRID Autosport's touring car discipline has also been released, and features several current drivers British Touring Car Championship (including Matt Neal, who was linked to Codemasters as a handling consultant prior to GRID Autosport's announcement) along with the previously unconfirmed Brands Hatch circuit.
