Description

A detailed recreation of rallying licensed from Toyota Great Britain. Driving on gravel, asphalt and ice is involved, with each race made up of a series of short stages to complete. After each stage, your times are compared with those of your rivals, whose names are subtly changed from the real drivers of the day. Up to four human players can be involved, taking it in turns.

As visibility is sometimes low, and the exact curvature of a corner isn't always obvious from the apex, a co-driver is provided to give pace notes. These can be adjusted before you take to the track, specifying what is defined as 'hard left' and how early the warning should be given.

The steering sensitivity can be adjusted, and you can choose between automatic centering, and a push-the-opposite-way-to-centre mode, but more unusual is the option to race with the steering directions reversed - definitely one for advanced players.

Trivia

Toyota's advertising slogan of the time, 'the car in front is a Toyota', was used within the game. Unfortunately for Toyota, it was soured in a Touring Car race at Silverstone in 1993, in which their 2 cars collided (while running first and second!), causing one to end up on its roof. Veteran commentator Murray Walker was on duty that day, and exclaimed 'the car upside down is a Toyota'!
