In this week's TeamVVV.com Weekly Racing Video Game News, DriveClub shows signs of life as we finally learn its belated due date, get treated to a new triumphant trailer and learn some new all-important details. But is it too little too late?
Along with the release date, we also got the answer to the other most frequently asked DriveClub question: it will only run at 30fps I'm afraid.
Still, DriveClub isn't the only racing game that will be pulling up on PS4 this year, despite the current drought. It so happens that popular PC sim Project CARS is being ported to PS4 on release, and new screenshots confirm that the PS4 version will retain the PC's proposterously pretty visuals.
It's fair to say that most of us are probably finished with Gran Turismo 6, but some upcoming commemorative Ayrton Senna content gives us the perfect excuse to dust it off once more.
All this and more can be found in the latest TeamVVV.com Weekly Racing Video Game News round-up embedded below. As always, links to all articles discussed in the video can also be found below.

Agreed! Cant wait until november. By the way in the 5th video of 9 "PCars UI: SOLO" i noticed theyre using a tune that was in GTR 2
Its a shame that they're shutting down but it should mean that Raceroom improves as in my opinion its lagging behind the other main sims (surely this must be the main cause for their bankruptcy?) The game has potential and an acceptable amount of content to buy, however I think the prices for individual cars and tracks is a little steep considering the quality of them compared to Assetto Corsa...
Always feel these sorts of packs are all very,,,meh. But how you can include a Merc in a "Best of British" baffles me, regardless of where it was built. Surely there are better example of British sportscars from the past that can be used? Anyway, microtransactions are the way forward and I like DLC but throw in a track or something, no?
Just need the games room to be sorted...might have to just check this out on a friends setup instead. ;o)
...and less shiny graphics. Not everything in real life looks brand new all the time.
