    Cool Did SMS/WMD do any test drives with/on real cars/tracks featured in this game?

    Got to say, im loving this game since the XBOne controller patch was released.... which got me thinking, did SMS or any WMD members actually get to test drive some of these awesome cars/tracks during development of the game?

    If so, would be interesting to hear some comments about the whole experience! please do share!

    Us at WMD have been testing and playing with the game since late 2011. We got to test each car and track as they were being developed.

    SMS itself probably not. But some cars have been tested by real race drivers. For example Rene Rast, who drives the Audi R8 GT3 and the Alpine A450. Also we have a WMD member who is involved in the Formula Gulf championship. Further we had Ben Collins (the Stig) and Nicolas Hamilton (brother of Lewis Hamilton and driver in a touring car championship) giving feedback on the cars behavior.

    But I am sure that there were more people with serious skills and experience in racing involved - sorry, if I forgot someone.

    Rene Rast uses Project Cars for practicing also. See below

    Is it me, or do his side monitors look normal instead of having that "warped" look due to lack of proper triple screen support?

    My triple screens look normal also. I now have, PLP (portrait, landscape, portrait) screens. Which doesn't need to stretch the side view, to make it fill the monitor. If people would get over the bad habit of doing three ultra wide, screens in landscape, they could experience Sim Racing the way it was meant to be. I need to make a vid of my new setup.

    There were a few WMD members like "chrisracer" that have raced at Watkins Glen in Lite Protoypes similR to the Radicals. Feedback from people like him are incorporated to the physics you are playing today.
