Project CARS 2 and GT Sport get Le Mans feverby Samarth Kanal on 6th June 2018
Le Mans added to both leading racing sims ahead of endurance race
In the build-up to the world's greatest endurance race, Project Cars 2 and Gran Turismo Sport have added Le Mans to their circuit lists, with a number of classic and modern sports cars to complement their respective rosters.
In Project CARS' 'Spirit of Le Mans Pack', a standalone purchase for £8.49 on PS4, Xbox One or PC (or part of the season pass), you'll find the Le Mans vintage track, modelled on the track as it was in 1970, when Richard Attwood and Hans Hermann won the contest.
- From the database: the 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours
- Project CARS 2: The car list
- GT Sport: Review
- Project CARS 2: Giant killer
With the new layout, five career events are included: the 24 Hours of Le Mans Experience, GTO Masters, LMP Challenge, San Marino Group 4 Trophy, and Spirit of Le Mans.
And the car list gets a boost as well as Project CARS sets to recreate the Ferrari vs Porsche battle of 1970. Included is the Ferrari 512 S, 512 M and the Porsche 917 LH. Of course, you can bring the other vintage Porsches to the old Le Mans track as well.
For those who wish to recreate Porsche's duel with Toyota in 2017, the Porsche 919 Hybrid and the Toyota TS050 Hybrid have been added to the game. The other cars included are a pair of 2016 Audi R18s, the 1980 Porsche 924 Carrera GTP and the 1986 Porsche 961.
With Project CARS 2's full day-night cycle, it should be possible to run a full 24-hour race (or 24-minute race), if you're that way inclined.
GT Sport players also get Le Mans, with the full Circuit de la Sarthe track included – but there's no option to do a full 24-hour race with day-night transition – with the option to pick a time of day to race.
The Playstation-only game also adds nine new vehicles to its slowly growing car list, and all of them for free in a recent update:
- 1968 Fiat 500 F
- 1988 Jaguar XJR-9
- 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 Bertone Prototype CN.0706
- 1989 Sauber Mercedes C9
- 1996 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV GSR
- 1992 Nissan R92CP
- 2011 Renault Sport Megane Trophy
- 2016 Renault Sport Clio R.S. 220 EDC Trophy
- 2015 Subaru BRZ S
