Peaking at around 14,000 concurrent players within its first 24 hours, paying a visit to the Horizon festival was more than twice as popular as pounding the tarmac in F1 2020.

A BEAUTY: This off-road beast is a winner for sure

The 207 S2000 can be won by completing the Forest Monsters Event. A dominant car in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in the 2000s, this little beast won 22 ERC victories and took three drivers to IRC titles, including Britain’s Kris Meeke.

The Raesr Tachyon Speed will be available in the Winter season, which will start in two weeks.
