Great stuff :a15:

p.s. This section of the press release needs a little tidy up: 'WMD members will be the first to enjoy the new car once it’s will be added to the development builds of Project CARS for a first test drive.'

There may well be, but as always, we cant confirm until its been agreed for obvious reasons ! :)

Project CARS needed this partnership. I've been chatting to the guys at Oreca and they are very excited to be part of this new project. We have some very special plans ahead so keep an eye on my posts.

There is no doubt it is a significant partnership. ORECA are arguably the worlds leading prototype builder for many teams around the globe and what makes this licensing deal even more sweeter is that no other racing title on the market has this pedigree in their arsenal. 1:0 to Project CARS.

Project CARS is now firmly competing with the big boys ..GT6, iRacing and Forza. We need partnerships like these to be taken seriously and to offer a truly authentic racing product to the masses.

Great car choice, when looking at the on-boards between LMP1 and LMP2, the LMP2's always look lie more fun to drive, so :thumbsup:

Both the ORECA works car as well as the Thiriet by TDS car use Nissan engines.

Build by the French motorsport specialists ORECA,

Don't think this particular bit has been mentioned, but it should be "built". I agree that a second pair of eyes on official announcements would be handy. I'll volunteer.. or just post in the SM forum and I'm sure any typos will be spotted before announced. :)

Most likely both petrol and diesel variants, but we're in discussions with Oreca on other possible variants so keep an eye on future posts.

Cannot wait for the Oreca LMP2 :)

BTW, wasn't trying to be a SA on the proof-reading thing, but second pair of eyes always helpful as things are very easy to miss with the same eye.

As there were only petrol engines in P2, are you suggesting there might be some fictional variants possible here? Would it be a stretch to say that we could have a modified 03 chassis (and powerplant) for P1? Maybe even a coupe?

P2s also have diesel and there could also be hybrid version of either. Although its early stages to confirm anything until its been decided with SMS and of course ORECA.

I don't know if I've seen a deisel p2. I'd think production based deisel powerplants wouldn't be good enough to power a P2 car O_o

I'd be interested in learning about these engines.

All P2 engines are modified production units. The first diesel engine for P2 was supposed to debut... last month, but we all know how that turned out (http://auto-racing.speedtv.com/article/le-mans-mazda-lmp2-engine-program-delayed/). Hence my curiosity about fictional variants.

Thanks Naruko, I know all P2 are production based I just wasn't aware of any P2 diesels. I forgot about that disasterous mazda diesel project.

Its probably because it's based on the same skyactiv technology in the GX cars which is just laughably unreliable.

Great news!

I think all this work Petrolhd (and Mark with the supercars and Felix/Patrick with Solitude, etc) is contributing is a perfect example of what this project stands for. I hope there is a 'dev diary' documentary type thing at the end that highlights how Petrolhd and others have gone about helping with licensing; the feedback and insight they encountered from the manufacturers when they approached them and what it's been like to see their hard work represented in game.

Would be a cool little featurette or 'blog' to include with the final game or a special edition.

Great work indeed Petrolhd! I hope you are not taking up too much of Phil Merrick's time with all these negotiations he needs some time to reply to me :)

A question that probably cant be asked but will this be in the base game or DLC?

Daniel Westlake
23-07-2013, 13:03
Very cool! A great choice to have included in multi-class racing or as a one-make series.

Well, unfortunately its the entire senior team I'm afraid!, we're working on a number of projects and exciting developments :) As for release etc.. Sorry you've probably guessed the answer.. I just can't confirm anything, that's for SMS to announce.

But..but you can talk about engines right? :a45:

I mean you don't have to confirm anything but I want to know what some of the POTENTIAL OPTIONS for Diesel and Diesel hybrids are for LMP2s, besides that horrible skyactive project. :a18:




Genuinely interested ;.;
