To make it more realistic, Slightly Mad Studios took a lot of information from the perspective of a real racer. They took photos of real racing games, recorded height information and even used ?laser scans?. Additionally, they took some real racing drivers like Ben Collins and Nicolas Hamilton the play the early versions of Project Cars to see what it looks like and get?feedback.

According to sources, Bandai Namco Games Europe S.A.S just announced that they will be the one to distribute Project Cars globally.
