The Pirelli World Challenge will come with Project CARS 2’s release on September 22nd and will bring all the authenticity of GT3-class action from North America’s top GT car-based racing championship to the game.
Racing with Pirelli tyres, the popular Pirelli World Challenge travels to numerous Project CARS 2-bound tracks such as Long Beach, Circuit Of The Americas, Road America, as well as Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The Pirelli World Challenge will be playable in Project CARS 2’s in-game career mode featuring all the actual GT3 cars along with their specific liveries to bring you the opportunity to not only test your your skills against the best GT3 racers on the planet, but also drive the most intense GT3 cars in the world.
All the cars from the actual series sporting their real-life liveries will also be included in-game. This car line-up is a mouth-watering treat as Pirelli Word Challenge boasts some of the world’s greatest GT 3 cars.
Acura NSX GT3, Aston Martin Vantage GT3, Audi R8 LMS / Ultra GT3, Audi R8 LMS / Ultra GT3, Bentley Continental GT3, BMW M6 GT3, BMW Z4 GT3 E89, Cadillac ATS-V.R., Ferrari 488 GT3, Lamborghini Huracan LP GT3, McLaren 650S GT3, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3, Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 and Porsche 911 GT3R, all are coming to Project CARS 2 with real-life liveries and real-world performance.
GT3 racing doesn’t get better than this.
“We have been working with Project CARS 2 for many months,” said Pirelli World Challenge President and CEO Greg Gill. “We believe that the opportunity for our Pirelli World Challenge fans to become fully immersed in their favorite cars and tracks experience will lead to new ventures that the fans and series can look forward to. We are excited for the introduction of the Project CARS2 game with our PWC cars in action.”
The technical partnership with Pirelli tyres deepens the authenticity that comes with Project CARS 2, gamescom’s “Best Simulation Game” winner for 2017. With Pirelli’s century-long involvement at the cutting-edge of motorsports and road-tyre technology, the technical insights they have brought to the handling and feel of all 180-plus cars in Project CARS 2 has been enormous.
From carcass construction to tyre-slip angle curves, from the way tyres heat to the way they cut and wear through their rubber thermomechanics, Pirelli’s partnership with the Project CARS franchise means drivers will now get even closer to the real-world of motorsports.
“Working alongside Slightly Mad Studios and seeing how their processes echo ours in many respects has been an interesting experience for us,” said Mario Isola, Head of Car Racing. “Bringing our technical and sporting solutions to Project CARS 2 has been a unique challenge, and ensuring our tires in-game simulate our real-world tires was a key element in our technical relationship. Knowing Project CARS 2 drivers will feel the sporting technology that underpins Pirelli’s motorsport heritage is important to us.”
