Project CARS 2 Announces Partnership With Pirelli

By Alex Jones, 2 months ago
Slightly Mad Studios, the team behind the upcoming Project CARS 2, has announced a partnership with the famous tyre manufacturer Pirelli. This extends beyond having the brand name on a few liveries and trackside hoardings, however, since it also gives them the rights to the Pirelli World Challenge GT3 series.

  • Aston Martin Vantage GT3
  • Audi R8 LMS / Ultra GT3

In addition, Slightly Mad Studios states that their partnership will allow them to create an even more authentic driving experience, accurately recreating how tyres react and degrade during racing.

Project CARS 2 is due for release on September 22nd.
