On this site they say there is a STCC game coming. RACE 07 + STCC as a game or only STCC as expansion pack.

Sounds very interesting. Let it be true :)

STCC: STCC blir TV-spel
STCC Game

Nevermind said:
STCC AB and SimBin Studios AB will release the racing game STCC – The Game on PC this year with all the cars and tracks from this years STCC season. The game will be available both as a stand alone game and as an expansion pack for RACE 07 owners.

“STCC will be a year-round-sport when we finally can drive on our Swedish circuits with our Swedish teams. To create a game with SimBin, who is one of the world’s leading developers of racing games, makes it possible for us to create a virtual representation of STCC that will be incredibly close to it’s real life equivalent, Bob Huzell said, CEO of STCC AB.”

SimBin has under the spring visited all circuits and all test days collecting information and the game is currently in full production, with a continued documentation of the cars taking place on Knutstorp this weekend under the STCC premiere.

“To recreate many of the circuits that I’ve drove myself in my career as a racing driver and which I still thinks are among the funniest after many seasons in international racing has been a dream since 2003 when I founded SimBin, Henrik Roos said, CEO of SimBin Studios. And to make this in cooperation with STCC and their professional concept only makes it even better, Roos continued”

Simbin will be at Knutstorp this weekend with their big simulator park with fifteen simulators in use that will be test driven prior to the season. The goal is to also let spectators drive an early version of the Knutstorp track.

I don't see any reason why not. Race07 is based on Steam. Don't know if they can/will restrict that. Pointless because it will bring money in of course.
If it will be boxed in our stores, that is less likely.
The website says 2008. Hope its soon.

Seems Race 07 was a good choice to go for as a base game, with all the new cars coming i dont need to get used to any new game in the near future! :)

Wow, I am really looking forward to this. I used to have STCC 2 (which was very difficult to get in Australia) and loved it. I'll get it for sure.

Now Bram, while you are talking to Simbin, how about V8 Supercars and Aussie tracks, you know it is a sure winner. :party0009: :alla:

Surely Codemasters have finished with their license by now (lets hope so anyway).

yep Codemasters have no more got V8 Supercars in their games so i guess the licence must be up for grabs :)

GTR Evo is apparently coming out in May somewhen according to play.com but we all know how unreliable their release dates are.
