From two wheels to four, GT Sport Daily Races, w/c 30th August 2021

From two wheels to four, GT Sport Daily Races, w/c 30th August 2021

Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM is known for its dirt bikes, motocross success and winning 18 Dakar rallies in a row. In a row!

But it also makes the curious X-BOW track car. While street-legal, the lack of a windscreen and the uncompromising nature of its design means this one is best when not on the roads.

Its 2.0-litre turbocharged Audi engine is mid-mounted within a featherweight 790kg body. Performance is lively then, and so too is the handling. It’ll bite if you don’t treat it with respect.

In a way then, much like a high-performance bike, this is a plaything. A weekend toy. And therefore, there’s a direct link between the motorcycles and this extreme car.

If you’d like to try other KTM products virtually, might we recommend playing Ride 4, but for now, here’s the GT Sport online Daily races menu for the week commencing 30th August 2021.

GT Sport Daily Races week commencing 30th August 2021

The first race uses said KTM around, not the Red Bull Ring, but around the short central variant of Autodrome Lago Maggiore. You can see the GT Sport detail shine through here, as the front wheels visibly move independently over the rough kerbs of this venue, reminding us of a single-seater racing car.

The two hairpins at this circuit mean you’ll have to watch out for last-minute dives on the final lap. You’ll need to keep in the slipstream of the leading pack and avoid calamities in the closing stages.

An Austrian venue, but not an Austrian car, is in Race B. A short, sharp, five-lap affair with no tyre wear to speak of in any Gr.3 car your choice. Unlike this track’s last appearance, thankfully it’s dry.

Rounding out the week is the longer Race C at one of the most challenging circuits in the game, and also the world. Mount Panorama. Strap in for a Gr.4 race where the front-wheel-drive cars will mob you down Mountain Straight but chew up their tyres faster than an Olympic 100m record.
