My ultimate fantasy! To smash up a Porsche 959! No, I think I'll stick to Metros for now - it's cheaper. The Super Stock Car sponsors must be pretty loaded as they supply you, Rick Radial, with a choice of four cars to take around the hair-raising corners and over the finish line of the stock car courses. The cars featured are a Lamborghini Countach, a Ferrari Testarossa, a Lotus Esprit and a Porsche 959. For real speed demons there's also a Robin Reliant Kitten!

Very reminiscent of old CodeMasters games, Car's graphics are colourful and well drawn, but the way cars torn corners is irritating. There are three stages of animation: one, the car faces to the left, two, the car is on a 45 degree diagonal and, three, the car faces down the screen. This takes a lot of getting used to and the jerkiness spoils the game.

One good thing is that when you get fed up with driving on the same old courses you can access the course designing section. You can now make each course dead easy se you can get around it without, wrapping your car around a lamp post. However, this is still very basic car racing which won't keep anyone playing for long.
