    Yep, the one at 1:04 looks like Bannochbrae Circuit just covered in snow.

    @doblocruiser And you are correct :D It is a scotland track.

    @IanBell First, I would like to say that I LOVE the first Project Cars. Spent 200+ hours in it and I can't wait to spend even more in Pcars 2.

    One quick question, are we going to see any of the 3 biggest Canadian tracks in the game? Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Mont Tremblant, and my favourite and most under appreciated track: Mosport?

    Looks just like Pcars with lots of tracks. TOD in all tracks is probably the best thing about it

    @IanBell

    Will there be a more intuitive Pit Stop Menu that can be tweaked during the race as opposed to the current system of "Pit Strategies" which must be set beforehand?

    Will there be some kind of "tuning helper" for each car/track combination to aid those who either aren't interested in tuning or noobs who don't know anything about it?

    And, when can I buy?

    Thank you for your time.

    Another question for @IanBell : since we're down to 170+ cars from 200+ cars, how much of the first game's roster survived?

    170+ could still mean 200+. Apparently there's still DLC planned though. :)

    Here's what the devs had to say about Playstation VR Support.

    "We can’t commit 100% to PSVR yet because there is still a lot of optimization left to do and all of the new things we’ve added,” said Viljoen. “For VR, we need to achieve an additional level of performance. We don’t want to compromise like other racing games have and lose any of our authenticity on PSVR. If we can get there, we will release it. We’ll eventually get it there one way or another, but we can’t promise it will be there at launch. The plan is to deliver the entire game."

    Yes, but when developers announce things like car counts, they like to use round numbers, so either ending in a 0 or a 5. 170+ cars means there will be somewhere between 171 and 174 cars.

    P.S - Is that an Aston Martin DB11 I spy here?

    A Pagani with a grand-tourer body? I don't think so.

    Apparently they have the most number of tracks ever on a console game

    The main thing we don't already know about properly is the Competitive Racing License and they've apparently got another video for that.

    Just like with GTS, that's my most anticipated feature. What a boon it would be to online racing to have an efficiently working driver rating system games like this.

    I would buy it even if it comes out later and I get the PS4 version first. Whether the Switch is built around the Tegra X1 or has a few tricks up its sleeve, maybe that's enough to bump 23fps up to 30fps? The undocked mode could be a roadblock, though.

    It's reassuring to know SMS have this kind of mission statement regarding physics and handling. :tup: Between successes like Assetto Corsa, PCARS1, or DiRT Rally, it seems like there's a bit of a larger audience these days for sims that aren't The Real Understeer Simulator™.

    I guess Enthusia was made in the wrong decade. :(

    Hey, new guy here :cheers: with a quick question. I am wondering if there is a way to hide or at least make the steering wheel static on the PS4 version of PCars? I am pretty interested in getting the game but if I can't get cockpit view without the steering graphics (like in ACorsa) that might be a deal breaker for me.

    Thanks for any help/input:bowdown:

    Live Track is Dynamic road surface transitions that affect vehicle performance, grip, and handling in real-time with bleeding-edge tire physics and surface deformities.

    You have an example here.
