    Not just the pC franchise.. but the entire SMS team has been disbanded and scattered to the four winds. What a truly sad day.

    I want to thank every last person who was with SMS for bringing me the greatest racing series I've ever played, I'll miss the old girl more than I can express into words.

    And, of course, the community and Mods who made this such a suitably Mad and fun place to discuss all things Project CARS and way beyond.

    It really is the end of a glorious era, I'm just glad to have been a tiny part of that.

    As you drive off into the sunset one last time, thanks for the cherished memories.. gone but never forgotten...

    It's a very sad end to something that has been a part of my life for 11 years now. Of course, I still have the games on my PC, I can play them whenever I want. I can still get a buzz from seeing my screenshots 'in the wild'. I will still have all the friends I've made along the way. But a little light in my life has just been switched off and that makes it a very sad day indeed.

    I hope all of the team can be relocated to jobs they can continue to enjoy doing, they were (in the most part) a fantastic bunch of people. Except Tom and his stupid baseball caps .

    I was but one of many that did the franchise proud in that regard (yes, I am blowing my own trumpet - let's face it, we all would if we could). I never gelled with the photo mode in pCARS3, which is why I think I took barely a dozen shots with it. I went back to pCARS1 and boy does that feel inferior now. pCARS2 seriously nailed it, IMHO, in terms of the tools it put in our hands, despite the little graphic engine gremlins at times. We also have the late, great Roger Prynne to thank for starting the amazing screenshot thread in here, the one that I probably spent more hours in than would be otherwise classed as 'healthy'.

    I cannot stress how important to my life this franchise has been. I am going to Le Mans for a 2nd time with people I met through WMD, then league racing. As I said to a few of them just now, in one of our Whatsapp groups, the pCARS franchise may have come to an end but our friendships will continue for far FAR longer. There are a lot of people across the world that owe new friendships to this franchise and, for that, everybody that worked at SMS should be very bloody proud of themselves.

    I will cherish my time in WMD (1 and 2), and everything that followed, for a very long time, which is why I really do wish everybody at SMS, past and present, all the best.
