Never believe the blurb on anything at all. The cassette blurb for this, for instance, says this:
'The most gruelling and challenging car race in the world is the 24 hour WEC Le Mans competition.
Drive it, experience it, survive it. The most realistic and addictive racing game yet. Four
dramatic laps must be completed to stay the course with 3 checkpoints to pass on each lap...
so buckle up and burn rubber.'
I say this; The most gruelling and challenging car race in the world is the 24 hour WEC Le Mans competition.
Drive it, experience it, survive it. The least realistic and most annoying race game yet. Four
bland laps must be completed (if you've nothing better to do) to stay the course with 3
forgettable checkpoints to idle past on each god-awful lap. So buckle up and burn rubber.
Then, realise your mistake, pull to a stop and promptly unbuckle again.
It may sound a bit harsh but this really is pretty poor. The graphics are dull and give no
feeling of travelling at speed. The control of your car is also poor - it conveys no realism at all.
Above all, it's annoying. One touch of an opponent causes you to fly through the air for no
particularly good reason. Even at budget price there are far more acceptable offerings than this.

Don't fo it readers. This really is a pile of old poop. Spare the hard earned contents of
those wallets. Keep them firmly locked (normal folk don't have padlocks on their wallets Roger - Ed)
and look elsewhere for budget thrills. Ah, a perfect end to a perfect holiday.
