    Great news everyone, Slightly Mad Studios just announced that Nicolas Hamilton (Lewis Hamilton brother) just joined the project as a handling Consultant!

    Nicolas is an excellent fit for Project CARS as his experience combines vast knowledge from racing in the real world and roots in simulation racing, allowing him to understand both sides and effectively help Project CARS fulfil its potential.

    Born in Herfordshire, England, in 1992, Nicolas was brought up in the motorsports world alongside older brother Lewis. Born with Cerebral Palsy, Nicolas has always made sure this wouldnít stop him from pursing his passion for racing.

    After a first try of karting at the age of 7, Nicolasí racing career kicked into higher gear in 2010 when he impressed everyone testing a BMW M3 at Palmer Sport. His smooth driving style earned him his MSA Novice Racing License and secured him a seat in the Air Asia Renault Clio Cup where he has been competing ever since.

    Aside from making it in the real racing world, Nicolas has also made a name for himself in simulation racing, finishing first in the 2009 SBTCC Championship and racing successful in plenty of other community-organized sim racing events.

    Nicolas will be assisting the development team with making the handling in Project CARS as authentic as possible, as well as providing other general feedback.
    Hes pretty good, already set alot of records in several tracks using a different number of cars and i honestly suggest you guys try to beat his records !

    And if this wasnt amazing enough, they also announced that Ben Collins is coming back this month! Oh yeah The STIG is back !

    Meh, I checked his records... He's playing with a controller. Pansy.

    You'd have thought he could afford a racing rig.

    He plays with a Thrustmaster T500RS, but he has a condition that does not allow him to use the pedals properly and thus why he uses the buttons.Still with the wheel and buttons hes faster than anyone else ^^

    Hi there everyone,

    Been a while since my last post and alot have happened in the meanwhile, but before heading into the good news heres a bad one, the Project CARS - 2 day opening that has been spoken to allow new members has been delayed for a while due to external circumstances.
    As soon as theres some updates on this matter be sure that i will come here and tell you guys, so be sure to subscribe this thread!

    So lets head to the good news!

    - The STIG is back from his adventures and along with Nicolas Hamilton have been helping the developers improve the physics on many cars, it is still far from finished but showing a huge progress already!
    - A new track has been added to the current available list - Emirates Raceway - Dubai Autodrome
    - The Ford GT40 MkIV has been added recently to the list
    - Wet effects added to many tracks
    - The Community liveries from the Z4 Contest have been added ingame and are now available to select
    - The M1 Procar livery contest had alot of submissions from the Community and the voting currently is underway, be sure to vote in your favorite livery!
    - Soft-stop and other steering wheel improvements have been checked in
    And much more !! (wouldnt fit in here)

    Oh and as you know, the best is usually left for last... so heres a bombshell still hot (announced just now) that any racing fan will enjoy:

    [SIZE=4][FONT=century gothic]Solitude Rennstrecke - [SIZE=4]Pre[SIZE=4]-alpha [SIZE=4]export[/SIZE][/SIZE][/SIZE]!

    [/FONT][/SIZE]
    That's right guys, the first export just came out a few minutes ago and it will be available soon to every Project CARS members!

    The legendary Solitude races began in 1903 with a hillclimb sprint for motorcycles starting downtown from Stuttgart’s western railwaystation and finishing up at Solitude castle. A couple of years later the start was moved to SchŁtzenhaus in the suburb Heslach. Until 1924 this was the track for the annual hillclimb race, since 1922 also for sports and race cars. Mercedes from the beginning sent their best racing cars and drivers in every year and at BMW they decided to debut their first racing motorcycles in this already well known race. In 1925 for the first time there was a circuit race ‘Rund um die Solitude’ leading over about 22 km each lap. The circuit was considered as being very demanding and was compared with the famous Targa Florio in Sicily.

    And thats it for now guys, ill leave you with some media in the meanwhile!

    A new month has begun, so itís time to check what happened so far since my last post.
    There were some big developments in the vehicle department with the addition of 4 new cars !! Yes you read it right 4 cars in less than 3 weeks!

    [URL=https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9loe4f7errktern/M2yvWTN4-y/PCars Screenshots/2013/January/M3 E30]1991 BMW M3 E30[/URL] (<- click for more images)

    2011 Mercedes ĖBenz AMG SLS[/URL] (<- click for more images)


    These 4 have put a lot of smiles in everyone faces around here and I believe it will do the same to some of you!

    A new track has also been added, Solitude Rennstrecke, still in a very wip state but already showing how great this classic track was back in the old days when the races were done by man and machine only, no electronics there to help you out a pure driving joy to have! (pictures will come later on when its more developed)

    Besides these great news the developers also shown some early sketches of the Grid Girls to be used in the game and boy must I say they look sexy ! Unfortunately I cannot post them here because they are on the edge of forum rules but believe me they would make something move down there!

    Qualifying mode has been introduced as well, only available currently in single player mode but it gives you a taste of whatís coming into the multiplayer eventually.

    The handling consultants, Nicolas Hamilton and Ben Collins have been giving some amazing feedback and as a result of that the physics recently improved largely on most of the cars but the most exciting ones to be the new Ford Focus RS, Racer L4-RS, Caterham R500/Classic and Formula A (F1).
    There were a few, of course that didnít improve as much and it still feels a bit out of place but with the constant feedback given by the consultants and the community they will surely get there soon enough!

    In the visual department there were some big updates also, new weather functionalities have been added, as some new rain droplet improvements that make you astonished of how realistic it look and react when hitting your car and windshield, you can see some pictures in the links above!

    Andy Tudor also introduced recently new UI improvements, which will improve the menu navigations greatly!

    About the 2 day opening to new members to register it seems to be taking a bit more than expected, as soon theres more info about it I will post on this thread, be sure to subscribe so you donít lose the track from sight!

    Thatís all for now, as soon as more developments happen I will be sure to post here.

    Thanks for the updates Leviathan, I keep meaning to put more time into the game, but I've had to put all my gaming on hold while I moved house. I managed to improve my time on the stage runs at Azure Coast the other day, but that's all.

    ... Oh, and I've just noticed they cleared the leaderboard again... Now there's a good excuse to get some laps done this weekend. I have to put my Azure Coast times back in.

    You are surely welcome to man and be sure to try the RS500 and Focus RS, they are just a hell of a fun. Not perfect but on the right path!
