Sumo working on "one of the most successful driving franchises of all time" (Sim?)

This doesn't sound like Sonic Racing 3 unless Sega has lost their mind.

Edit: Apparently they've worked on F1 before so it's presumably that.

Game Designer - Vehicle Handling and Perfomance Specialist - Sumo Digital

Job Description

We require a gas-guzzling, do-nutting Petrol-head for an exciting design opportunity!

Are you a car freak? Do you have at least three years of design experience on high profile console driving games?

Sumo is looking for someone with great experience and a passion for tweaking the physics and performance characteristics of a wide range of vehicles in a successful driving franchise to join our team of Stig Fantasists in Sheffield. A background of successful game design experience is important, as is an understanding of (and passion for) car handling, set-up and the console racing genre.

If you’re auto-obsessed and want to contribute to one of the most successful driving franchises of all time, get in touch ASAP – we want to talk to you.

The pessimist in me thinks that it's going to be something mundane, like Sumo being drafted onto the next Need for Speed after the Criterion/Ghost shenanigans, so EA can pump another one out this year.

Petrol head sounds like a more serious car game. I'll hedge my bets on a next gen Driver.

Wouldn't put Driver and Serious Car game in the same breath.

I'm gonna go with Outrun. Serious Petrol Heads would want to put a 458 with a blonde chick in the passenger seat.

GX was like cutting with a magma hot katana through butter. constant 60fps... DEM FEELINGS.

A while back didn't they say they would love to make a Mario vs. Sonic kart racer? Or something along those lines?

But yeah.. Outrun or Sega Rally?

Well, here's their wikipedia page if you want to see what games they did in the past, and they actually DO have a history with Outrun, along with F1 games. So I'm guessing one of those two. Of course, maybe they're being contracted to assist Forza or something too.
