Slightly Mad Studios have announced a major new addition to World of Mass Development as Nicolas Hamilton joins Project CARS as Handling Consultant.
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 wouldn’t stop him from pursing his passion for racing.
After a first try of karting at the age of 7, Nicolas’ 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 bringing real racing experience to the table, Nicolas is also an accomplished sim racer, having won the 2009 SBTCC Championship run with Race07 and other sim racing community events.
His activity on WMD will include providing feedback to the developers and running a weekly blog with his view of the latest developments. Furthermore, Nicolas has already been busy setting some very fast laps on the Project CARS leaderboards, giving the members a tough nut to crack.
With former “Top Gear” Stig & racing driver Ben Collins returning to WMD this month as well, there are now two race drivers helping to fine-tune Project CARS tire & physics model.
