Nürburgring Nordschleife Comes To Project CARS
Few tracks can compare in popularity and fame when it comes to virtual racing to the fabled Nordschleife. The ring has surely seen plenty of action during its life both in the real track and the multiple virtual representations available in countless racing games.
Although it’s still under heavy development, Slightly Mad Studios’s Project CARS title has recently added the ring to its list of available tracks, and within a few builds it has evolved into the prelude of what might be one of the most gorgeous renditions of the Nürburgring.
Racing around the Nordschleife
Make no mistake. The track might seem wide and gentle compared to other versions. But, as soon as you get on your car of choice, you’ll feel the bumps under your vehicle on every turn. It’s actually a very pleasant experience to put together a clean lap.
On this particular case, the car used is a Pagani Zonda R. It’s a car that just feels right in the latest builds and has a reasonable amount of grip (that won’t save you from having to do small, constant corrections throughout the lap due to the bumpiness of the track). It’s a vechile quite enjoyable when you’re taking upon yourself a lap around The Green Hell.
The track currently allows up to 16 cars on the grid and promises to deliver plenty of fun for its fans. At the time of writing this article, the AI of pCARS on this particular track was not available due to development issues.
I’ll admit I’m eagerly looking forward to see some Formula A racing on the ring when the multiplayer is available on pCARS. While we’re all used to touring car racing, an open-wheel race there will surely be as fun as chaotic.
If past development of the track by SMS is any indication, the pCARS rendition of Nürburgring Nordschleife might very well become one of the most enjoyable to come in recent years.
As a bonus, if you haven’t seen it yet, enjoy this F1 1973 Grand Prix at the Nordschleife.
