Project CARS adds Solitude Racetrack in latest update


Project CARS is the prettiest thing. That much we know. Though, according to reports, it is in fact a game under all that prettiness. A game which racing fans the world over are beginning to call home/friend/brother/lover. And, like with each entry on that list of choosable relationships of varying closeness, its potency is only increased when dipped in nostalgia.

So the addition of Solitude Racetrack in the latest build of Project CARS is likely to have made many a grown racer tear up a little.

Here’s why:

Solitude, orSolituderennen, was a German racetrack that in its 1903 – 1965 lifespanwas used for everything fromGrand Prix Motorcycle racing to Formula 1 (Thanks Wikipedia!).

Now out of use for nearly fifty years, this recreation in Project CARS is likely to be the only way you’ll be able to drive around the 11.4km track at over 100mph without some form of negative legal happening.
