Yeah, I saw this on S3's own forums the other day. It's funny how up-in-arms some people are getting about the announcement. I mean, all those who already own the Citroens can continue to use them without issue, and they will still appear as AI-driven cars too.
So what's the big deal? If someone who likes touring cars is new to R3E, I would think they'd be far more interested in the current WTCR class than the "old" WTCC class so the loss is a minimal one. On top of that, if they buy the starter pack they'll now get one of those WTCRs (Golf) instead of an outdated WTCC too.
