After yesterday’s shocking news that Project CARS was seeing yet another delay, Slightly Mad Studios have shared some news about the much anticipated racing simulator. First up is a new quick look at in game customization options, which can be seen in the video below in the full. Secondly four new courses were revealed today including Sonoma Raceway and Willow Springs International Motosports Park.
- Sonoma Raceway
Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) is a hilly road course and drag strip located in California. Twinned with Watkins Glen International (also in Project CARS) as a host of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series it sees regular use by many other motorsports on both four wheels and two.
- Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps
Home to the Formula One Grand Prix, 24H endurance event, and many more, the famous circuit has seen many layout changes since 1920 although the infamously flat-out Eau Rouge has largely remained untouched making it one of the fastest and most exciting tracks in motorsports today.
Opened in 1987, the relatively-new Brno Circuit has been host to the World Sports Car Championship, A1 Grand Prix, and the Czechoslovakian Motocycle Grand Prix.
- Willow Springs International Motorsports Park
With a blistering lap time of just 1 minute 6 seconds held by legendary racer Michael Andretti, the 9-turn track is the oldest permanent road course in the United States with elevation changes and high average speeds making it a favourite amongst drivers.
Project CARS is scheduled to launch on every platform in May, except the Wii U which is expected some time later.
