Project CARS covers a wide variety of machines and motorsports.
Everyone has different tastes when it comes to cars; some love the sleek, smooth lines of an Italian supercar, some love the raw power of a US muscle car. And we all have our favourites when it comes to motorsports, teams, and drivers.
We’re passionate about cars too which is why we’ve made sure Project CARS covers all the styles and forms of racing and car culture that you love…
Whilst we all salivate over the curves of an Italian sports car, the growl of a V8 engine, or the sublime handling of a highly-tuned GT machine, for most people their love for cars starts with the one parked on the driveway of their house. Whether that’s a hot hatchback, a luxury saloon, or a city runner, Project CARS has a number of vehicles on offer that you’d likely see driving around in your everyday life.
Of course, in Project CARS you’ll get the chance to exploit these to their fullest by taking them out to the virtual track and pushing them to the limit without the usual real-world worries of burning through tires or overheating the brakes 😉 So be sure to check out these great cars that – whilst being more affordable than others – are great fun to drive and the entry point for many potential future race drivers.
As one of the most accessible motorsports on the planet participated in recreationally by millions each year, karting has been the starting point for many professional racing drivers such as Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, Juan Pablo Montoya, Danica Patrick, and Jeff Gordon.
Considered by some as the first step in any serious racer’s career, it can prepare the driver for high-speed wheel-to-wheel racing by helping develop quick reflexes, precise car control, and instinctive decision-making skills. In addition, it also introduces an awareness of the various tweakable parameters that can potentially improve the competitiveness of the kart (eg.. tire pressure, gearing, chassis stiffness) that will prove invaluable in higher levels of motorsport.
Players in Project CARS will be able to experience the thrill of karting in two forms – 125cc shifter karts perfect for short circuits and the more powerful 250cc Superkarts capable of speeds up to 160mph.
TRACK DAY CARS
Road-legal but built for the track, these open-top machines are purpose-built sports cars – low to the ground, lightweight, and capable of incredible lap times.
Built by small but talented teams of engineers and designers, these unique visions of uncompromising and minimalist technical and aesthetic beauty are just as innovative as they are competitive and offer a pure racing experience for those that are are willing to get behind their wheels.
One shining example is the Mono created by BAC in Liverpool and driven by one of our talented professional racing driver consultants Oliver James Webb. Check out this startlingly-accurate comparison of Oli driving
