Not much in it as far as looks. Colours seem a bit more vibrant in Pcars but that is just settings.
Both very very realistic. Too realistic really to the point of being sterile. give us more dirt!

Sound? well, shitty work computer speakers wont do either justice. I've never heard a SLS AMG GT3 in real life so I cant comment, but of cause, I'll give an opinion. AC sounds better.

Driving? don't have Pcars. and i'm a AC fan boi.

As close as it gets to real life:

I've heard the merc in real life at the clipsal. It is a bowel shaking deep growl. Nothing else sounds like it.

I have been doing radio ops at Phillip Island on a couple of occasions with the GT3 racing... very hard to beat and Wally, your description if spot on.

The footage on the right has far more track side objects then the one on the left. I prefer the looks of the right to be honest, which I assume is PCars.

I'm sorry but I fell off my chair laughing... :D
Interesting that you've noticed more roadside objects with that eyesight!

It's kind of pointless comparing the sound as AFAIK the F1 camera changes in AC now play the in-car sounds.  I assume the Project Cars clip was playing exterior sounds.

Was the Project Cars version of Spa laser scanned?  Pretty impressive job if it wasn't.  One thing I don't like about AC atm is the black driving line - especially on the straights.  There shouldn't be as much rubber build up on the straights should there?  It even seems a bit dark in the corners for me.

Change optimum track to green or whatever and you'll see the difference. Is the track dynamics selectable for server admins?

Only the grip percentage and gain.

Sorry...it was merely a jest :)  You wrote "I assume" while there's big letters under the picture on the right saying pCars :) 

But in all seriousness, all I can see is a few more banners & visitors - that's about it.  What else have you noticed?
