Developmag has the scoop.

"Sega's UK-based Racing Studio has been closed, Develop understands.

According to a former staff member from the studio, the Solihull-based outfit has shut down effective immediately.

Sega Racing Studio had so far developed just one game, its PS3/360 and PC remake of Sega Rally. Released in September 2007, the game debuted to fairly good reviews (with an average score around 75 according to Metacritic), but less stellar sales.

The studio was founded in 2005 to help Sega establish a racing game team that drew on the UK development sector's heritage in the genre. Former Codemasters man Guy Wilday was picked to run the studio which in time grew to include over 60 staff working on multiple projects, including the Rally remake and purported new racing IP."
