The Racing Car Pack will include the X2010 ultimate racing machine, the Red Bull X2011. Also in the pack is specially tuned touring cars and three new racing karts. There’s 15 cars included in all. £6.29 will get you this one.

The Racing Gear Pack will feature 90 items, including helmets from 8 famous WRC and NASCAR drivers, with 12 suits and helmets in all. There will also be new gear from Alpinestars and Simpson. This will cost you £1.59.

Finally, the Paint Pack, also priced at £1.59 adds in 100 new colours to paint your motors with.

All four packs will be able to be purchased together as the Complete Pack, with a reduced price of £9.49.
