Project CARS – New Tracks Revealed
Following the recent delay announcement, Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco, revealed today four new tracks coming to Project CARS. The new track are: Sonoma Raceway, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Brno and Willow Springs International Motorsports Park. Slightly Mad Studios have also released a few screenshots of the new tracks, which can be viewed below.
Below are a few details of the new tracks:
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 certainly looks like a contender
Project CARS certainly looks like it could be one of the best racing experiences available when it launches mid May. The slight recent delay is ensuring a better polished game, and hopefully one that will meet the high expectations, everyone has for the car simulator. Yet it remains to be seen whether this largely crowd funded project can go up against the big boys from Microsoft and Sony.
Project CARS is currently stated for a Mid-May release for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. A Wii U release will follow later in the year. We will bring you any new information on Project CARS, prior to its mid-May release, as soon as it becomes available.
