More On: GRID Autosport

Earlier this summer when I reviewed GRID Autosport, my favorite discipline was the touring cars.  I like that they're a little slower and a little easier for a racing game fail-pie like me to handle.

If you're like me then you'll be very interested in the newly released Touring Car Legends pack.  The Touring Car Legends pack comes with the Silverstone Circuit and Donington Park. Car-wise, you'll get the 1994 Volvo 850 Estate, 1994 Alfa Romeo 155, 1996 Audi A4 Quattro, 1991 BMW E30, and 1989 Ford Sierra R S500 Cosworth.

It costs $14.99.  To learn more, follow the jump.

The ??Touring Car Legends?? pack includes some of the most dramatic and exhilarating cars from one of the most competitive eras in the sport??s history.

· 1994 Volvo 850 Estate Touring Car - Volvo??s striking estate was their first entry into Touring Car motorsport and the only estate used in that season, with its shape giving it strong straight-line speed at the expense of traction in low speed corners.
1994 Alfa Romeo 155 Touring Car - The 155 revolutionised Super Touring Car racing with ground-breaking wings and spoilers that dramatically improved its aerodynamic performance.
1996 Audi A4 Quattro Touring Car ?? A title winning car that lead the pack, the Audi??s dominance played its part in 4WD being banned from this form of motorsport from 1998 onwards.
1991 BMW E30 Touring Car - A fast and fun rear-wheeled BMW that won the first Championship under the Super Touring Car regulations.
1989 Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth Touring Car ??One of the first cars developed for the track first and then put into production to fulfil entry requirements, its thoroughbred performance and distinctive styling makes this car a Touring Car classic.

All circuits and tracks are playable in online and offline modes, including in three new single player championships?? the British Championship, Euro Championship and International Championship.
