Just 19 days to go before Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco will release the second installment of their Project CARS racing franchise. Project Cars 2 will feature 60 circuits, of which 20 are scanned tracks to ensure a faithful representation of their real world counterparts. In all, the Project CARS 2 track roster spans 130 individual layouts suitable for a wide variety of racing styles.
Besides a large roster of modern racing circuits and driving locations, Project CARS 2 also features a nice selection of racing circuits from yesteryear such as the historical versions of Spa- Francorchamps, Monza, Silverstone and Rouen Les Essarts. In this post, we take a look at some previews of the 1967 Monza circuit which comes to Project CARS 2 featuring 3 different layouts.

The Autodromo Nazionale Monza is one of the world’s most famous racing circuits located near the city of Monza, north of Milan, in Italy. Operational since 1922, it is the third oldest racing track in the world. It was purpose built for both the Italian Grand Prix, and to give Italian automakers a high-velocity track on which to R&D their products. In 1954, work began to entirely revamp the circuit, resulting in a 5.750 kilometers (3.573 mi) course, and a new 4.250 kilometers (2.641 mi) high-speed oval with banked Sopraelevata curves. The two circuits could be combined to re-create the former 10 kilometers (6.214 mi) long circuit, with cars running parallel on the main straight. The track infrastructure was also updated and improved to better accommodate the teams and spectators. The banking held the last race in 1969 with the 1000 km of Monza. but still exists today, albeit in a decayed state. It is used once a year for the Monza Rally.
Project CARS 2 the ‘ultimate driver journey’ will become available September 22 – 2017 for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam OS.
