Description

Motorhead is a racing game set in the near future. Despite it's semi-futuristic setting, the cars require realistic handling. There are 10 different cars and 8 different tracks. They are not all available from the start however; the player has to earn them by winning championships in the Transatlantic Speed League.

Trivia

Somewhere on the Redrock course there is a statue of a hand holding a pickaxe (see screenshot # 20). It's very similar to the Red Faction logo. Moreover Redrock's scenery is red, dusty and features mining operations (Red Faction is about miners on Mars). A coincidence? (Yes. --Editor)
