On the Project Cars website today there was an interesting lead in to a story.  It related Super Cars and Comic Con, two things NOT normally talked abou tin the same sentence.  The lead in went as follows:



San Diego Comic Con is upon us and that means superheroes and supercars!

Supercars, Exotics, Hypercars... whatever you want to call them, they're the cars we had on our walls as children and the cars that make our heads turn as adults. Where other road cars drive, these super-powered machines fly!

With six or seven figure price tags, alluring bodywork, perfectly-balanced power, exquisite handling, and immeasurable desirability they're the cars of our dreams and the ultimate expression of design, beauty, and technical collaboration.

A little vague as to what they are getting to, but it had a link to Read More, and this is what was found:


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...
SUPERCARS



Supercars, Exotics, Hypercars... whatever you want to call them, they're the cars we had on our walls as children and the cars that make our heads turn as adults.

With six or seven figure price tags, alluring bodywork, perfectly-balanced power, exquisite handling, and immeasurable desirability they're the cars of our dreams and the ultimate expression of design, beauty, and technical collaboration.

Whilst players will be able to test and race these machines in special events and bespoke one-make series within their career, we want you to also enjoy these rides in the setting you're most used to seeing them - the open road. Stay tuned over coming months to see the gorgeous road courses you'll be able to drive these cars on but for now, sit back and enjoy these stunning shots...





Le Mans Prototypes are the fastest closed wheel racing cars used in circuit racing today, competing in a number of high-profile endurance events including the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.


With vehicles from real-world manufacturers BMW, Renault, Bentley, Oreca, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi, Project CARS also includes LMP1 and LMP2 cars created by you, the community.

Get behind the wheel of these super-fast machines and participate in championships that will take you across the States and Europe and the iconic Le Mans 24 Hour race*.

Check out this great video from race driver Rene Rast matching his real-life time of 3:40.170 in an LMP2 car with a startlingly-accurate of 3:40.110 in Project CARS.
 



GT (Grand Touring) covers a wide variety of two-door road vehicles that have been upgraded and tuned to race spec.

With a heritage of prestigious machines, strict regulations, and noteworthy champions, GT racing is a motorsport with a variety of faces. Players will be able to drive in many different classes and cars from Ginetta G40 Juniors to GT3 and Endurance vehicles, iconic GT cars like the Ford GT40 Mk IV, Group 5 cars, and more!

So whatever your passion, be sure to check out these amazing machines and take them out to attack some of the most famous and challenging European and World circuits.




Modern Open Wheel is a world of cutting-edge technology, screaming engines, and record-breaking lap times.

Covering everything from entry-level four-cylinder engine types through to unrestricted V8s complete with advanced energy recovery and drag reduction systems, these single-seater open cockpit machines are all about aerodynamics, downforce, peak performance, and a driver racing on the knife edge of control at blistering speeds.

Players will have a choice of either plotting a career path from the rookie ranks up to the pinnacle of modern open wheel racing, or you can jump straight in at the deep end and strive to become World Champion straight away - the choice is yours.

So get ready to strap in and prepare yourself for one of the fastest forms of motorsport on the planet.

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.
