The second round of the Off-Road Touring Championship gets under way today. This week we’re taking a break from the mud and dust in-game to pay tribute to WTCC great and friend of Simraceway, Tom Coronel, who is currently tackling the gruelling Dakar.

 

We wish him the best of luck in South America and hope he doesn’t have too many more days like this:

 

 

Accordingly, the track we’re using for this Championship round, Brno, has been specially selected by Tom after his podium finish there in the 2011 WTCC season.

  1. Ensure you own a 2011 WTCC car. If you don’t, you can download one.

  3. Set one of the top 28 lap times at Brno to qualify for the 14-car A and B finals and grab some all-important points towards the overall Championship prize.
