Slightly Mad Studios has confirmed it's bringing Project CARS to Wii U in 2012.

The studio behind Need for Speed: Shift and Shift 2: Unleashed confirmed its latest racing project is on the way to Nintendo's next home console alongside PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

The game's description mentions several features Nintendo fans have been requesting for some time: user-generated content shared with — or sold to — a wide network of players, a cloud-based social network of leaderboards and more.

Here's a video of the game running on PC. We'll have more on CARS as it happens.
