Patrick Callahan is an investor who hires the players, and helps to launch the WSR. The player plays the role of driver who has to compete against other clubs present in different locations. Instead of a non-technical progress bar to show the progression of the player, clips and the support from the audience show to the player how well he is performing. This league features a number of racing modes. The point to point races take place mostly in the serene countryside. There’s also the traditional racing on tracks. Togue, which made its debut in the series in the prequel of Grid 2, also makes an appearance in this installment. In addition to these modes, the elimination and the Time Attack modes are also featured in the game. The most celebrated feature of this game is the ‘Live Routes’. In this racing mode, the players race head on with the unknown. No maps of the racing course are provided since the track is computer generated by the amalgamation of different sections of the many featured courses.
