Ever since Slightly Mad Studios started the development of Project CARS, professional drivers were involved in the WMD-powered title.
What started with former Stig Ben Collins and Nicolas Hamilton who serve as physics & handling consultants in the WMD forums has now spawned to more and more drivers who enjoy the alpha version of Project CARS to prepare for the next race or simply their own enjoyment.
As covered before, one of them is Rene Rast, who prepared for his maiden Le Mans start with Project CARS. Rene has also introduced his friend Nicki Thiim, 2013 Porsche Supercup Champion & Aston Martin works driver, to Project CARS as seen in the video below.
Another driver that has been bitten by the Project CARS bug is Philipp Eng. The Austrian racing ace competes in the Porsche Supercup and the ADAC GT Masters series, he has shared a video of him tackling the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Project CARS.
Project CARS will be available for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam OS, and Wii U starting November 2014. More info can be found on the Project CARS website.
