Description

Arcade racing in and around London in a variety of cars. Compete in three leagues - small cars, luxury sports cars and GT racers on your way to winning the title and the ultimate car.

In this UK-customised racing game you drive on the left, knock down Gatsos (speed cameras), and get chased by police in Vauxhall Astras and much more.

Simple arcade racer is fun, but it's over far too quickly. Windows Steve Hall (322)

Trivia

Due to a lack of licensing agreement, all the cars have been subtly renamed. For example, a Mini is called a Nimi, an MG is a GM, a TVR is a TRV, and so on. The most curious renaming is the Jaguar which becomes the Trafagular. They've also done the commentary to reflect this, so you get "reporting as speeding BWM near Tower Bridge".
