Hot on the tracks of our newest Project CARS videos, we’re in Italy for a single lap through the short course of the racing simulator’s Florence circuit.
Classic Seventies with the Lotus 72
Piling legend upon legend, the racing car featured is the Lotus 72D known to anyone with a knowledge of early 1970s Formula One and long propelled along the tarmac by Ford’s domineering Cosworth DFV engine. The DFV was incredibly successful as it crossed three decades of racing in Formula One, even competing with turbocharged engines for several years up until the mid-1980s.
Project CARS-Thrustmaster Competition
This video demonstrates what is actually a current event for Project CARS members. The car and track represent the two week-long hot lap competition and prize draw that began on the 16th of July and is being held in recognition of Slightly Mad Studios’ alliance with Thrustmaster. Amongst other gaming hardware, Slightly Mad Studios recently set out the wide-ranging support for Thrustmaster controllers, including hardware for the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One and PC with the established T500 RS sitting alongside newer racing kit such as the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4-licensed T300 RS wheel and pedal set, the T100 Force Feedback Racing Wheel and the Ferrari 458 series that is also compatible with the Xbox One. Heading to ‘all formats covered’, then!
The hardware list from the draw includes Thrustmaster’s TX Racing Wheel, its Y-250C Gaming Headset and surely the most prized item of them all, a Slightly Mad Studios coffee mug.
To have a chance of winning that speed-giving chalice… or the Thrustmaster gear, simply find your way to the Lotus 72 and drive over the Florence circuit. Fast or slow, all players completing a valid lap will be entered into the prize draw.
