In related news, race driver and former “Stig” Ben Collins has shared his first impressions of the pre-alpha version of C.A.R.S.
Collins works as a Physics & Handling Consultant on the team and has been impressed with the physics of the early versions, comparing it to professional-grade simulators he’s been using as part of his race driver career:
So far my impression of this sim is that the physics are very similar to the Le Mans / F1 simulator we’ve been using this year at Wirth Research for the Le Mans Series, which is very impressive.
The graphics are mega and track realism is extremely close for such an early stage in development. If this is the early stages the end result could be stunning.
Every interested sim racer can become Team Member for a one-time price of 25€ to enjoy weekly development builds and up-close access to follow the development progress of C.A.R.S. For more info on pricing and benefits, check out the WMD website.
