The Top 5 Highlights From Rally Italia Sardegna 2017

As huge fans of rally events, here at GSM, we couldn’t resist sharing the official top five highlights from the WRC Rally Italia Sardegna 2017.

The part we’re blown away by is when Thierry Neuville drives flat out through incredibly poor dust conditions. Barely able to see even 80m in front of his Hyundai, Neuville shows the true determination & bravery needed by every rally driver in order to keep up with their rivals.

Check out the highlights in the video below!

DiRT Rally VR Announced For PlayStation VR

Legendary UK racing games developer, Codemasters, has officially announced PlayStation VR support for DiRT Rally. Set to be released in the coming weeks, owners of the base game can purchase a digital upgrade for £9.99 whereas, for those that currently don’t have DiRT Rally, the game will receive an updated physical version including all updates and the brand-new VR mode.

Unlike some VR game updates, DiRT Rally will be completely playable and allow you to drive any of the outstanding cars across any of the adrenaline-fuelled courses. All event types are available to choose from as well as event conditions! At GSM we can’t wait to go hurling round a snow-covered course at midnight in an off-road weapon.

That’s not all though! A brand-new co-driver mode allows a second player to participate in events as the headset wearer’s vigilant co-driver by using the social screen. The co-driver’s actions will directly influence what the driver hears at any point during the event to perfectly recreate the thrill of rallying.

If you love rallying then we can supply you with plenty of premium equipment that will get you off the starting line at your next event! In our showroom, we have the largest display of sports seats in Europe with FIA-approved seats by the bucket(seat)load. the exceptional Corbeau Revenge bucket seat is fully FIA-approved and used around the world in all types of rally events.

Our new range of custom steering wheels and boss kits allow you to control your vehicle with a wheel unrivalled in style. Racewear is essential for any driver whatever the motorsport situation so why not visit us to try on some of the best fireproof race suits such as the P1 Passion 3 and the P1 Pro 3.

State-of-the-art helmets like the Stilo WRC DES Composite Rally Helmet are also available for testing, complete with their top-of-the-range WRC intercom system. This highly demanded helmet with its WRC intercom system is used by professional rally drivers from all around the world. Book an appointment to visit us and get yours today!

We can’t wait for this update to be released so we can participate in realistic rally events across the world at any time, any day of the year!
