The latest addition to the Project CARS vehicle roster still have 4 wheels and an engine, but a considerably smaller footprint than more of the other machinery.

That’s right, karts will be in the game. Often overlooked by racing sims (although we all love a bit of Mario Kart), karting is the starting point for the vast majority of racing careers before the drivers are even out of primary school. Even Max Verstappen will only be 18 months removed from his last competitive kart race when he steps into his Toro Rosso in Melbourne next April.

Project CARS will feature two kinds of karts. The tubular frame single seat 125cc shifter machines that we’re all used to are the entry level model, advancing to 250cc Superkarts featuring full-on aerodynamics and can reach dizzying speeds of over 150mph! There will be plenty of places to thrash these mini motors around at too, with the fictional Glencairn complex and the Dubai Autodrome’s karting circuit both confirmed. Shorter full sized circuits such as Silverstone’s Stowe circuit and the Brands Hatch Indy layout which are perfect locations to show off the capabilities of the Superkarts.
