Grid Autosport trailer shows off Touring Car racing

A new trailer from Codemasters shows off the Touring Car discipline of Grid Autosport.

Interspersed with interviews of real-life touring racers, the trailer shows footage of cars speeding around the track, weaving around rivals and nudging one another for position.

Touring car racing is one of five disciplines planned for Grid Autosport, each of which has several dedicated series, such as GT, Single-Seaters, Muscle Cars, Drift, Supercars, Hypercars, Time Attack, and Prototypes.

Codemasters announced Grid Autosport in late April, when it said the title has been designed to "move the series back in line as a more authentic racing game".

Codemasters announced its decision to freeze is own publishing and distribution duties in favour of a partnership with Bandai Namco in February 2013. The Tokyo-headquartered publisher agreed to become the distributor of GRID 2 across the UK and Europe and will do the same for Autosport.

In a previous statement to the press, Codemasters said the agreement "encompasses major forthcoming games to be published by Codemasters on its Codemasters Racing label, including as yet unannounced titles".

The Grid Autosport release date is June 24 2014 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
