IndyCar Racing is a racing-simulation with the famous IndyCar(now: Cart) theme.

Like in the majority of racing-simulations the view is the driver's perspective. The car's gameplay is excellent, also rookies get easy involved with it. The visualization was detailed and well ported from the original. IndyCar Racing belongs to the best racing-simulations of its time. The grade of realism could not handle with Grand Prix 2 but the game was the reference in the Indy500 category. Also in our days the gameplay is unbeaten. Visualization and Sound were innovative. For the first time there were textures on the cars, asphalt and on the sourroundings. The sound of the motor is very realistic. The 8 Race- and Speedways were lovingly copied.

Banners and famous buildings in the scene give their credit to the atmosphere. Of course, there is a simulation of bad wheather and the possibility of switching on a drivers aid (automatic braking and steering in the curves). There are many options when it comes to motor tuning. The game comes with a official IndyCar license.

Together with Grand Prix 2 IndyCar Racing is my personal racing-simulation recommendation in the abandoned scene.
