Hop into the driver's seat, mate

The developer behind Project CARS seems pretty pleased with the Wii U GamePad, saying that it "screams innovation" and that it intends to take full advantage of the controller's features.

Speaking with NowGamer, Slightly Mad Studios creative director Andy Tudor said:

The gamepad just screams new innovations for gameplay and is a perfect match when thinking about using the gyroscope as a handheld wheel like in Mario Kart Wii and showing data on the screen such as a map, telemetry, speedo, or rear view mirror. When you couple that with Miiverse functionality and community it’s a no-brainer.

Earlier this week we reported that the dev also feels that the forthcoming racer will "'look and feel amazing" on the Wii U.

What do you guys think? Are you getting adequately pumped for this speed-fest?
