WRC 9 is opening the doors to future rally stars with its latest content offering: the Rally Star DLC.
The Rally Star DLC is the result of the developers working closely with the FIA World Rally Championship to bring a brand new competitive mode to players, and hopefully find some future stars of the sport.
From February to August 2021, 12 online trials will be held to select the most promising drivers in WRC 9. This first phase of the competition will be open to drivers from 17 to 26 years of age, and will be played exclusively with the new M-Sport Ford Fiesta Rally3. The winners of each of the 12 trials will qualify for one of the six continental finals.
At the end of the finals, the 7 best drivers, including at least one woman, will be enrolled in an exclusive FIA training and practice programme. For the best of them, the adventure will continue with 2 seasons in the FIA Junior WRC!
“The new level of realism in WRC 9 gives us the opportunity to propose this challenge to all of the sport’s fans around the world” said Jérôme Roussel, FIA programme manager. “The next Sébastien Loeb, Ott Tänak or Sébastien Ogier may well already be practising on their console or PC! We just need to find them!”
