2022 WTCR Season Now Available in RaceRoom

No Comments

Earlier this year, RaceRoom introduced the 2021 WTCR season to its sim – and has not been idle since: A new update brings the 2022 season of the popular Touring Car championship to RR as well, with events based on the class likely to follow.

A mere five months after the release of the 2021 season pack, the current season is waiting to head to the virtual track in RaceRoom. With 17 cars on its entry list, the 2022 WTCR season has been somewhat altered compared to its initial plans, with the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia and logistical difficulties in Asia causing the Czech, Russian, South Korean, Chinese and Macau rounds to be canceled. Additionally, the Race of Germany on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife had to be canceled as well due to safety concerns regarding the tires.

Meanwhile, the calendar leaves room for expanding the RR track roster: Of the rounds that have already taken place, the Circuit de Pau-Ville in France, the Portuguese Vila Real circuit, Anneau du Rhin in Alsace/France and the Italian Autodromo Vallelunga are absent from the sim. No tracks have been released with the new cars, however.

With the introduction of the 2022 WTCR cars, new events are set to be following. In the official release Tweet, RaceRoom mentions an “exciting competition kicking off soon” – what exactly this entails remains to be seen.
