Playsport Games confirm GT racing will be coming to Motorsport Manager this February 22nd. Motorsport Manager, the best selling racing management simulation focused on the world of top level F1 style open wheel racing is to receive a substantial update in the coming days, with several enhancements and expansions to the core game base - not least of which will be the inclusion of two new closed cockpit GT racing championships. "The GT Pack brings a fresh and exciting challenge, expanding our world of motorsport to the thrilling environment of closed-wheel racing! Managers can fight it out in two series, the proving ground of the GT Challenger Series and the prestigious International GT Championship, with both championships populated with new teams, drivers and staff" said Playsport on the official MM Facebook page. With the addition of GT racing - a long requested feature from many fans of the series, it will be interesting to see if Playsport look to expand the number of motorsport series further in future updates. With Motorsport Manager offering a very solid base software, this latest DLC may prove to be the first of many new and exciting motorsport forms due to be added to the game. Additional to the GT Challenger and International GT Championships, fans will also be looking forward to receiving some further good news come release day. Due to be added as a free DLC, Playsport have developed a 'Create your own team' feature, where players can create your own brand new team from scratch and build up your infrastructure and resources as you look to take on the established names within your chosen series. In my opinion this is a very good move by the developers and is sure to be an exceptionally popular addition to the title. "The player will be able to customise their team colours, name, logo and uniform. The update gives the player greater control by allowing them to create and personalise their very own team, and to be their own chairman" said Playsport of the new create your own team feature. It is not known at this time if the team creation feature will be available across all disciplines of racing within Motorsport Manager, or if the new functionality will be limited to just the original open wheel content. As well as the two new DLC packages coming to the game players can also look forward to a hefty update to the main software itself, bringing the build up to version 1.3 and addressing a number of areas of the simulation. No details have officially been revealed by the developers as to what build 1.3 will contain, however having seen a leaked changelog online already it looks like it will be a rather sizeable update indeed...
