Trivia

Bugs

In a rush to release the game, the creators got careless and left a few glitches. One of them was when you finish the game and get everything you can, your percentage says 98.8 It teases you and makes you go insane because you think you finished.

The other glitch was that no matter what, even if you saved your game, cars can disappear from your garage.

Emulation

One of three games to be emulated on the short-lived bleemcast! PlayStation emulator for Dreamcast.

Extras

Early releases were produced with a scratch and sniff coating on the blue GT Mode disc. A gentle rub with the fingers or a soft cloth will release the fragrant scent of grease, oil and burnt rubber.
