ORIGINAL STORY 5/2/16 2.00pm Ubisoft's delayed arcade racer Trackmania Turbo will finally leave the starting grid on 24th March, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Trackmania was originally due to launch last year, but was delayed after playtesting and feedback suggested it needed more time being tuned in the pits.

The game will come with 200 pre-built tracks to master, set over four environments: International Stadium, Canyon Grand Drift, Valley Down & Dirty and the all-new Rollercoaster Lagoon.

You can then construct new tracks to test yourself and others using the game's Trackbuilder tool.

A shiny new trailer lies just below:
