Racesims Revolution proudly presents ETCC 2003! The team has spent the last several months tirelessly working on something we hope you all will enjoy for a long time to come! From the highly detailed cockpits, to unprecedented physics, to the finely textured car exteriors and menu interfaces, we have strived to deliver a very high quality and entertaining sim racing experience.

The ETCC 2003 Mod is a free mod for "F1 Challenge 99-02" published by EASports. The ETCC 2003 Mod includes all cars and drivers from the 2003 season of the European Touring Cars Championship (ETCC) and it was designed with the aim of creating the most realistic touring car racing simulation currently possible. All cars have been modeled with great attention to detail with unique cockpits and steering wheels for each car model. The ETCC 2003 Mod was designed with the sim-racer in mind, who wants to enjoy close racing as it can be seen in real ETCC races with a realistic driving and physics model and realistic AI behaviour. All the new features of the F1 Challenge 99-02 engine have been used, like the damage model and the new physics, all cars also come with working handbrake, headlights and horns, and the AI has been reworked to make the ETCC 2003 Mod a challenging sim-racing experience.
