There is no Authentic difficulty setting, so how can we get Race Master? Is it a glitch?

Hello dude,
Unfortunately Race Master is currently glitched. The dev’s are aware of the situation, so hopefully the patch will be coming soon, as soon as it’s obtainable, we will get the YouTube guide done and will update the WRC 9 guide 🥇👍🥇

Great guide thank you.

First time I’ve ever played this, I’m great in the snow, but on gravel I’m really struggling to compete with the AI, even though the setting is the same as in snow.

Am I missing something? Is the best approach to be hand brake and drifting around corners?

Hello dude
Gravel has a different feel to snow, you have less grip so have to use less steering input to keep the car moving in the correct direction, you need to brake earlier for corners due to the less grip 

Hard gravel like Argentina is harder than say soft gravel like Sardinia so might take a couple of attempts to get used to how it feels 

Move brake hose to the front of the car so you have better front end braking

Hope that helps
All the best

Hi!

I’ve unlocked all of the “Winner In” trophies, but not unlocked Hero. The only rally I didn’t podium in at the WRC level was Kenya. Will I need to go through another season and podium there in the WRC class to unlock the trophy?

Thanks.

Hello dude
As long as you podium all rallies no matter the vehicle class hero should unlock so you probably have an issue that the developers should hear about

Use that link to make them aware of your problems
Hope that helps
