Project CARS – NEW BUILD 189 AVAILABLE.

 

NEW BUILD 189 AVAILABLE.

Slightly Mad Studios have released the newest weekly build of Project CARS, giving Junior members the chance to catch up with the developments of the past four weeks.

The new build is packed to the brim with new content, including two new cars and no less than 12 new tracks that have been added since the last Junior release.

Build 189 marks the first chance for Juniors to try the Palmer Jaguar JP-LM and the stunning 2011 Bac Mono. While one is a lightweight and nimble track day race car, the other is a road going sports car that brings racing technology to public roads.

The two new wheels can be raced on a slew of new tracks, both modern and historic. Juniors will get the first chance to race on tracks like Sakitto, Badenring, Milan and their historic counterparts, making sure that everyone gets to race on some of their favorite type of tracks.

The new build also includes the first version of the TweakIt tool for Full Members and above, introducing the first part of Project CARS’ Live Editing Suite that will allow members to tweak lots of aspects such as cameras, lighting & weather to their liking..
