Project Cars 3 - My first Scheduled Multiplayer Race (Ruapuna Park, Road D Class)

Project Cars 3 has been released today for Deluxe Editon owners, so we can finally take a look at the multiplayer experience as well. Here you can see a scheduled race on Ruapuna Park Outer Loop with the Jaguar F-Type in Road D class.

1:20 "Touring Tuesday" Scheduled Race - Ruapuna Park Outer Loop with Jaguar F-Type SVR Coupe (Road D class)

The scheduled races in Project Cars 3 are comparable to the daily races in Gran Turismo Sport. There is a specific race every 20 minutes and you can register for them ahead of time and set a qualifying time.

The races seem to take a bit over 15 minutes, so if you enter a race you might barely miss the following one and even if you make it you won't be able to do qualifying, so if you want to qualify, then you can probably only start a race every 40 minutes (entering every second race).

As you can see in the video the game will slow you down for cuts and in some spots it can be very strict, so you have to watch out for that.

It is possible to use cars from your career mode garage for these races. As you can see the winner here used the Evo 6 which is normally in class Road E, so he upgraded it. You can also use a stock version of any car as a loaner car though. However, this may not be a good choice in some classes once people have figured out the best cars.

In terms of the actual racing my first experience was very positive, as you can see in this video. There were some nice but fair battles and no hard takedowns. Obviously I may have just gotten lucky with the opponents being fair, so we need to wait a bit longer to see what the races look like on average but at least having a good race is certainly possible.

I will probably be showing scheduled multiplayer races regularly over the coming weeks, so if you want to see those, then follow me on my live stream channel here:
