Slightly Mad Studios have released some incredible looking images from the newly confirmed Red Bull Ring that due to be added to Project CARS 2 upon release later this year. Developed from the remains of the once legendary Österreichring that held Formula One Grand Prix from 1970 until 1987, the Red Bull Ring has undergone many changes and states of ownership since reopening its doors ahead of the 1997 Grand Prix season. Initially named A1 Ring, the track was met with mixed reviews from drivers, especially lacking in enthusiasm from those lucky enough to have driven the daunting original 5.9km circuit which was universally adored by all who took to the winding tarmac surface, despite the obvious lack of modern safety considerations and downright dangerous sections of track that have claimed the lives of several drivers during its 26 years of operation. With a modern push for safety consideration sweeping through motorsports the world over, 1995 saw the legendary track undergo a major redesign in order to bring it back to current safety standards, with the goal of attracting Formula One racing back to the county for the first time since the 1987 running of the event. Step up Formula One track designer Hermann Tilke who penned a new 4.3km layout that bore very little resemblance to the original Österreichring. Despite the limitations placed upon Tilke and the subsequent popular opinion that the new track has failed to live up to its illustrious predecessor, the now titled Red Bull Ring has proven to be a solid track that often produces reasonable racing action, mostly due to three long straights followed immediately by long braking zones and tight hairpin corners. Following a prolonged period of inactivity after an aborted attempt at redeveloping the circuit by the current owners, in stepped Red Bull to refurbish the track to it's current form and the return of Formula One racing for the 2014 Grand Prix season. As with many of the tracks due to feature in Project CARS 2, the Red Bull Ring will be laserscanned and it will be possible to play the track in a number of weather conditions, including nigh, rain and snow! Project CARS 2 should be releasing for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC towards the end of September 2017.
