Rift Touch Controllers on Project Cars

The Project Cars - Game of the Year app comes up on an Experience search on the Rift site. Says it supports Rift. Does anyone know if my wireless Touch Controllers will work with the game? I hate to shell out the $$$ only to find out 'No'. Any help is appreciated. - Chris

    No touch controller support.  Actually I’m unaware of any decent racing sims that use touch controllers.

    You can control with keyboard, mouse, game pad (like Xbox controller), or any pc gaming wheel (with or without pedals).

    i have both pc cars (Oculus store) and assetto corsa (Steam store).  PC Cars graphics are pretty impressive but I prefer Assetto Corsa because I think it feels a bit more realistic.  Both are good racing sims imho.

    Custom built gaming desktop; i9 9900k (water cooled) oc to 5ghz, gtx 1080 ti (from my old AGA), 32 gb 3000hz ram, 1 tb ssd, 4 tb hdd.  Asus  ROG Maximus xi hero wifi mb, StarTech 4 port/4 controller sata powered usb3.0 pcie card, Asus VG248QE 1080p 144hz gaming monitor, Oculus Rift cv1 w/2x sensors. Vive Cosmos, currently work in progress.

    If Project Cars supports generic direct input devices (it should), then Auto Oculus Touch would probably work. https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/60220/auto-oculus-touch-v0-1-5-latest-release-5-sep-2018/p1
    It can bind touch controls to a virtual (no pun intended) gamepad.

    It depends on how you would want to control it though. There's no position tracking at the moment, so you couldn't pretend to be holding a wheel. Thumbstick or controller rotation (roll or yaw) should work.

    (Note: You'll need to learn how to write scripts for it to get it to work though)
