Project Cars initially had a hard time gaining traction in the racing-simulator genre, which makes sense. With big franchises like Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport, there isn’t much room for another game. We’re glad that didn’t deter them, because based on this new trailer – Project Cars looks to be the best racing-sim we’ve ever seen.

The game centers on developing your own character and leading them across a motorsports career from starting out in go-karts all the way up to NASCAR and Formula 1. As drivers progress, different teams will reach out and offer entry to compete in unfamiliar racing series. So even if you become a DTM champion, taking on NASCAR as a second series isn’t out of the question.

It’s a compelling recipe, but you’ll have to wait until November to get your hands on a copy. Did we mention Ben Collins, Top Gear’s ex-Stig, is involved?
