WRC 10 Car List and Legends Revealed

KT Racing has revealed the full car list for this September’s celebratory edition of the WRC series, WRC 10, and along with it some of the legends and historic moments the game will relive over the 50 seasons of the World Rally Championship.

Naturally, the title will feature almost complete representation from the 2021 iteration of the championship, with cars throughout the WRC ladder. That starts at the top — WRC itself — with the three dominant cars from Toyota Gazoo Racing, six Hyundai i20s, and the three M-Sport Ford Fiestas.

Each brand also appears to have one additional car, with the non-championship #18 Toyota and Fnckmatie Fiesta both present. There’s also what looks like an honorary entry for Hayden Paddon’s Hyundai, absent from the real-world’s schedule this year.

The WRC-2 and WRC-3 classes — identical in terms of the R5/Rally2 machinery used, but open to factory and privateer entries respectively — boast 22 cars in total. That’s dominated by the Skoda Fabia (seven cars), Citroen C3 (six cars), and Volkswagen Polo (five cars), with three entries from the Ford Fiesta and one lone Hyundai i20N.

All eight cars that race in the Junior WRC will make an appearance. This class is a spec category, using M-Sport’s Ford Fiesta Rally4, and among them will be Jon Armstrong’s Codemasters-sponsored machine. Of course Codies will be taking over the WRC licence from KT Racing/Nacon in 2023.

The full “Legends” list has also been revealed and it offers up some big clues about what historic challenges players will face in WRC 10. Of course we already know about the Colin McRae Subaru Impreza pre-order bonus, recreating the controversial 1997 Rally Sanremo, but some of the other events have remained less clear until now.

With the first WRC champion machine, the Alpine A110 Berlinette 1973 (Team Alpine), it seems as if players will be whisked back to the series’ first ever event. That was the Rally Monte Carlo in January 1973, an event that Alpine not only won but locked out the podium.

The 1974 Lancia Stratos of Sandro Munari likely will treat players to the Stratos’s debut race — and debut win for car and brand — at Sanremo, as Lancia captured the championship with the Fulvia (which also appears in 1972 form) and Stratos. Sanremo will probably feature again for the 1981 Audi Quattro A1 of Michele Mouton, as she became the first and only woman to win a WRC event.

Group B features heavily, with Walter Rohrl’s Lancia 037 from 1983, Stig Blomqvist’s 1984 Audi Sport Quattro, and a pair fo 205 T16s from 1985 and 1986: Ari Vatanen’s Evo 1 and Timo Salonen’s Evo 2. Just about any event in those seasons would qualify as an historic moment, for myriad reasons from tragedy and farce to legendary wins, so we can’t wait to see what WRC 10 has in store there.

Following the Lancia Delta HF of Juha Kankkunen in 1987, and the Evo car of 1992, focus moves to Toyota. Carlos Sainz’s championship year in the 1992 Toyota Celica will feature followed by Kankkunen again in the “Safari Pack” Celica. Both are likely to involve Rally Kenya, given the drivers’ victories in those seasons. A 1999 Corolla attributed to Hideyoshi Kanzou also appears.

The Mitsubishi/Subaru battle is recreated with the aforementioned McRae Subaru and Makinen’s 1998 Lancer Evolution, before things move into the modern era. There’s a pair of Sebastien Loeb’s Xsaras, from 2004 and 2005, the championship winning Ford Focus from 2007, the 2011 Citroen DS3 — oddly of Petter Solberg, rather than either of the Sebs — and Sebastien Ogier’s 2016 Volkwagen Polo WRC.

Rounding out the Legends list is the Seb-streak-busting Yaris WRC of Ott Tanak from 2019.

It’s quite the list of iconic machinery, and KT Racing has more planned after launch too. WRC 10 will arrive on September 2 on PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One/Series, and PC, with a Nintendo Switch version to follow later.

    The thing looks terrific BUT i see there is NO Ford Escort, of either the original 1600 or the upgraded model in 1976. Not even an Escort Cosworth from 1991. Sorry guys but that is ridiculous, since that car especially made such a deep mark on the sport.

    Could possibly add some more classic cars from V-Rally 4 because they have another WRC Legends cars in V-Rally 4 such as Ford Escort RS1600 1973, Ford Escort MK II 1980, 1965 Mini Cooper S, 1986 Volkswagen Golf GTI MkII 16v, 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer WRC04, 2011 Mini Countryman JCW WRC, 1984 Opel Manta WRC Group B, 1981 Renault R5 Turbo, and 1978 Porsche 911 Carrera SC Rally.

    I hope after this year WRC works something out with iRacing now that they offer point to point racing. Rally racing hasn’t had a proper “sim” since Colin McRae’s Rally back around 2000.

    KT Racing or Codies (Cooties?) Can still handle the licensed game a la NASCAR Heat, for consoles and casual PC gamers.

    Give us masochists something difficult to bang our heads against. The way iRacing is setup with live spotters and such you could have a friend or teammate as a co driver! Doesn’t WRC deserve to have its own esport like NASCAR does with the “Coca Cola iRacing eNASCAR Series?”

    Too bad there are no Volvos, SAABs nor the 2002 Monte Carlo Winning Subaru Impreza WRC to the list. Just hope that whatever stages are snowy, that there’s a decent amount of snowfall density.

    The Alpine A110 photos appear to show Jean-Luc Therier’s 1973 Acropolis-winning car (immatric. 8695 HG 76; chassis 18271), which he had earlier driven to 5th place in the 1973 Rallye Monte Carlo, as car no.4.

    Wow, now that’s an impressive car list!
    Let’s hope they make good use of the Legend cars in the game. Cannot see them being available for career mode (would be illogical) . But it would be good if they’re available outside of their dedicated event (which will probably be one race or one rally), in e.g. free play where you can race them on any of the rally courses.
