RaceRoom 2018 FIA WTCR – Audi RS 3 TCR & Peugeot 308 TCR Previews
Sector3 Studios will release the highly anticipated 2018 FIA WTCR DLC for RaceRoom in sync with their next build update. While it is not yet officially confirmed, the WTCR addon pack will most likely feature all the teams and cars running in the 2018 WTCR Championship.
To fuel the hype, Sector3 Studios has gradually been revealing in-game screenshots showcasing the 2018 FIA WTCR DLC content. The latest screenshot sets showcase the Audi RS 3 TCR and Peugeot 308 TCR.
Audi RS 3 LMS TCR
The Audi RS 3 TCR is powered by a four-cylinder TFSI engine which is nearly unchanged from its production version. In the TCR version, the engine delivers up to 257 kW (350 hp). The Audi RS 3 LMS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in about 4.5 seconds and achieves a top speed of up to 265 km/h. As stipulated by the regulations, the car has front-wheel drive.
Peugeot 308 TCR
The Peugeot 308 TCR is developed by Peugeot Sport for competition in the TCR category and the WTCR championship. The car evolved from the 308 Racing Cup and is based on the road-legal 308 GTi. The 308 TCR is powered by a turbocharged 1,6-liter THP engine delivering 350 hp (256 kW) at 6,000 rpm / 420 Nm Torque at 3,000 rpm. The power is transferred to the front wheels by a six-speed sequential racing gearbox.
Previously revealed cars:
The FIA World Touring Car Cup, also known as the FIA WTCR presented by Oscaro is an international touring car championship promoted by Eurosport Events and sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). The 2018 World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) takes over from the World Touring Car Championship and adopts the TCR technical regulations, though it will be the 14th overall season of the series that dates from the 2005 World Touring Car Championship.
The change of name and new rules follow the declining interest in the TC1 regulations used by the World Touring Car Championship between 2014 and 2017 and the growing interest among manufacturers in the TCR touring car category.
