    • Bring on the Talbot Sunbeam Lotus through its paces on the hot Spanish asphalt.
  • The Right Tyres (Chile)
    • This event in 2023 saw Oliver Solberg managed his tyres to perfection and obtain his second event win of the season.
    • It was an an event where the ŠKODA Fabia RS Rally2 cars dominated the top three steps of the podium.
  • Battle of Attrition (Greece)
    • Back in 1983, the brutal nature of this abrasive and twisting rally resulted in a SS9 Renault driver becoming the last man standing in his class.
      • However, a mechanical failure occurred and ultimately forced him to retire too.
  • Roulette (Monte-Carlo)
    • In 2016, this Peugeot driver suffered power steering issues and made it difficult to navigate the extremely slippery conditions.
    • His resilience allowed him to battle back and finish in the top 10.

For those wondering, there won't be a patch accompanying this release. That's because the content was already added to the backend of the game with v1.8.0. So are you ready to race in the new season?
