Vroom, vroom, rev up that engine and burn off down the road!. Sounds exciting eh?, well personally couldn't fall asleep fast enough.

The race starts in the time honoured manner, with the player's car sitting at the starting line (puzzling how your car is coloured and the rest are In mono, perhaps they ran out of paint).

The aim is to reach the end of the run within the confines of the dreaded timer. There are five runs in all, and frankly, the only reason they present any challenge at all is the sluggish control of the car.

Other road users bump and jostle you mercilessly, but a lot of the time you don't notice them because the scrolling is so jerky that they are upon you before you can react. Twin Turbo V8 adds nothing to the racing game genre, so save your money.
