Slightly Mad Studios have announced another high-profile addition to their stable of real-life racing aces as Rene Rast joins the studio as Project CARS physics & handling consultant.
The German sports car ace joins fellow race car drivers Nicolas Hamilton & Ben Collins in their quest to help ensure a maximum realism within the Project CARS franchise, working closely with both the development team and the World of Mass Development community on future Project CARS titles.
An official Audi works driver, Rene Rast has made major strides in sports car racing in recent years, scoring overall wins at the Nürburgring 24 Hours, the Spa Francorchamps 24 Hours as well as a class win at the Daytona 24 Hours.
Rast also raced as part of Audi’s LMP1 squad at Le Mans last year where he’s currently busy on LMP2 class duty. To introduce Rene to the Project CARS crowd, the studio has released part one of a very well-written interview piece with Rene who tells his story on how he made it from karting to the biggest stages of the sport.
