GTC Africa (GTC meaning Global Touring Challenge) is a rally game for 1-2 players in a geographical setting of Africa. The game could be seen as a follow-up to the developers previous game Wild Wild Racing though now we stay in one continent only, and use more ordinary rally cars.

The game has 9 cars used in 19 circuits in environments from cities to savannah and jungle, which can be raced individually or in one of three championships, either East Coast Championship, the North South Challenge or a full African Tour with all 19 circuits.

For 2 players, only the individual races are available, not the championships, which only allow one player racing against AI. There is also a Practice and a Challenge mode, which consists of a mini-game on a mixed circuit. Customization is only selecting Teams (with team colors, and cars) and choosing automatic or manual gearbox.

Driveable cars are:
  • Ford Cougar
  • Ford Escort RS Cosworth (Mk V)
  • Ford Focus RS WRC (Mk I)
  • Ford Mustang (Mk IV)
  • Mitsubishi Lancer (Evolution VI)
  • Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
  • Pontiac Grand Am
  • Pontiac Vibe
  • Subaru Impreza

I think that cross at the rear might have a double meaning?

In the rerun, you don't see the speed or time.
