Bandai Namco has announced the addition of
Snetterton, Donington Park, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and 24 Hours of Le Mans.

From Bandai Namco -
"Already featuring scenic drives along the French Riviera, epic mountain passes down the US west coast, exotic vistas from Australia and Dubai, and iconic motorsports tracks from across the UK, US, and Europe, Project CARScontinues to build upon the largest location roster of any recent racing game with yet set of freshly-announced destinations…


Players of Project CARS will get the chance to participate in the world's biggest motor race - the 24 Hours of Le Mans. For over 80 years manufacturers and drivers have been flocking to France each June trying to make their mark on this prestigious event by proving both their speed and stamina - and now it'll be your turn facing off against a full grid of 55 opponents on the track and racing through the night and into the dawn the next day.


Featuring severe elevation changes and the infamous "Corkscrew", Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca has hosted a number of Grand Prix for cars, karts, and bikes for over 50 years. Now you can experience this track in unprecedented detail and in all weather conditions.


Home to rock concerts, grand prix, and motorbike championships alike, Donington Park was the first park circuit in England and continues to this day to be a household name with racing fans from around the world.


As a member of the Motorsport Vision group, Snetterton is host to Touring, GT, and Superbike championships and is also a common test track for professional race teams. Featuring three layouts, Snetterton is one of the UK's newest race tracks and is sure to delight players wanting to either compete there themselves or use it as a proving ground for trying out their latest car setups.


And we still haven't finished! We have plenty more locations remaining to be revealed so check back regularly to see which have been announced! "

With what appears to be the largest selection of cars and tracks of any sim to date, stunning visuals, rain, day and night, and the ability to be played on consoles pCARS looks to be the sim to beat. That, along with help from former Stig, Ben Collins, and others making the physics as real as possible, should make pCARS a sim for everyone, gamer or sim racer. I know I will be anxiously awaiting its March 2015 release.

I'm glad they licensed it... I was getting worried it would not make it to the final release tracklist, but I love Donington, such a great track.

I would like someone to clarify the fate of Hockenheim , SPA, Monza historical (There was another one too). Are they gone for good? Problems with the licenses?

I'm fairly sure that there's still a lot more tracks, including Hockenheim and Spa, that they just haven't announced yet. I've been seeing them a lot in community footage from people in the beta, and there are still over 3 months to go until release. It's the same with the cars as well.

The historic versions of these tracks (plus Solitude Rennstrecke and Bannochbrae) will come with a DLC after release since they're not finished, especially Solitude which was just a ribbon in the sky.

I would love to see the Montreal circuit in PCars, but I don't think its as 'iconic' enough as perhaps SlightlyMad would see it in order to include it in their game. Maybe in a future update though.
