The Autódromo José Carlos Pace, better known as “Interlagos”, is on its way to Project CARS 2.
Ian Bell, head of Slightly Mad Studios, has been very active in our forums as of late. He recently explained that new tracks in Project CARS 2 were laser scanned with drones, and has been answering many questions from the community regarding the highly-anticipated game.
His latest tease reveals a circuit that is eagerly anticipated by many fans: Interlagos. In a post in our forums, Bell stated, “Small update on Interlagos. We’ve made contact with the nice people at the circuit and have also sourced a laser scan. As soon as the team catch a breath they’ll start working on it.”
The post implies that Interlagos is in the early stages of development. Although the game is not due for release until later this year, the track is likely a candidate for a post-release DLC pack.
Ian Bell also had something to say regarding DLC for Project CARS 2, “I think this time we’ll give ourselves a little more time per DLC pack. So most likely less packs [than the first game], more content per pack.”
Also, when responding to a post regarding other possible tracks in South America being included, Bell replied, “We’re not done yet. We did translate pCARS into Brazilian Portugese. So we haven’t completely ignored South America.” Could this mean more tracks from the Continent? Perhaps a brand-new, custom-built road experience analogous to the California Highway track in the original Project CARS? We’ll have to wait and see.
Interlagos, Portuguese for “between lakes” and officially known as the Autódromo José Carlos Pace is one of the most iconic racing circuits in the world. It’s famous for the high-speed bend in the home straight, large undulation and quick lap times. The track has also staged the conclusion of many Formula 1 World Championships, as well as famous victories by country men Ayrton Senna and Felipe Massa.
Since it’s a track on the official Formula 1 calendar, Interlagos can of course already be experienced in F1 2016. It’s also available in iRacing, but many fans are eager to try the track in other racing games. When voting on tracks they want in a future Gran Turismo game, Interlagos is the tenth most-requested game by the GTPlanet community.
