Swedish developers Sector3 Studios have confirmed the 2016 WTCC season will be recreated in RaceRoom Racing Experience, and with it bringing the beautiful Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 specification touring car to the game. The 2016 WTCC pack will come as no surprise to those who follow RaceRoom closely, as the simulation holds the official licence to recreate the series, and has released season packs already for the 2013, 14 and 15 championship years. What makes the upcoming 2016 edition of the WTCC special is, of course, the introduction of the exceptionally popular Polestar Cyan Volvo S60, as driven by Fredrik Ekblom, Thed Bjork and the likeable Robert Dahlgren. New for 2016, Volvo made their full time return to the World Touring Car Championship with the visually stunning TC1 specification S60. Developed by the Swedish manufacturors performance arm Polestar, and campaigned by the newly formed Cyan Racing, the S60 has, unsurprisingly, captured the hearts of my tin top fans the world over. Although not particularly setting the timing sheets alive this season, the plucky Swedish team are gradually making progress with the car as they aim to get a handle on one of the toughest touring car series in the world. It's pretty, it has a nice colour scheme and some cool drivers. Here's the technical specs: Engine: 4-cylinder, 1595 cc, Drive–E Volvo Drive: FWD Power: 400 HP Max rpm: 8500 rpm Gearbox: 6-speed sequential Suspension: MacPherson front and rear, adjustable Öhlins dampers Brakes front: 4-piston caliper, 390mm ventilated discs Brakes rear: 2-piston caliper, 280mm ventilated discs Rims: 18″ with five-bolt pattern Body: Steel and carbon fibre Weight: 1100 kg Of course with the announcement that the 2016 WTCC season is coming to RaceRoom, one should not forget the other manufacturers that will be presented in the new release. Citroen are the current World Champions and carry the converted number one with Jose Maria Lopez. Teammate and touring car legend Yvan Muller will also be present, alongside a wave of customer specification C-Elysée WTCC machines. Lada, Honda and Chevrolet will also be represented by the Vesta, Civic and Cruz models respectively. The announcement by Sector3 appears to be very early in the development cycle, and as such no in game footage or release dates have yet to be revealed.
