Slightly Mad Studios is very excited to announce a major new addition to Project CARS as the world-renowned Indianapolis 500 will be featured in the WMD-powered racing title.
First held in 1911, the Indianapolis 500 is the world’s longest-running motor race and one of sport’s major spectacles. Each year, 33 drivers compete for their place in victory lane, racing 200 laps in high-powered open wheelers, always inches apart from threatening concrete walls.
The Indy 500 is one of racing’s marquee events, being watched by a worldwide tv audience and more than 300.000 spectators trackside, making the Indy 500 the world’s biggest single-day sporting event.
Being the cornerstone of each IndyCar Series season, the Indy 500 takes places on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Players will be able to experience the thrill of driving a 700hp open-wheeler inside the world’s most famous oval as Project CARS will feature a true to life virtual version of the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway venue. Aside from offering an exciting place for action-packed multiplayer races and quick race events, the Indy 500 will also become a integral part of Project CARS’ career mode.
To go along with the track, players will be given access to all cars and drivers of the 2015 IndyCar Series season, featuring the series’ Dallara-built DW12 open wheeler. Powered by 2.2l V6 turbo-charged engines from different manufacturers, the DW12 is used by all IndyCar teams in various configurations for both oval and road-racing.
As Project CARS strives to provide the most authentic racing experience possible, all aspects of modern American open wheel racing will be accurately featured within the game, including asymmetrical setups, the IndyCar Series’ push to pass feature as well as proper oval racing rules.
Project CARS will be coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Steam OS, WiiU & PC, starting November 2014.
