World Racing 2 enhances the technology of the game's fore-runner World Racing, which introduced an innovative 3D landscape technology and sophisticated driving physics. While World Racing focussed on the simulation aspect, World Racing 2 will put the fun of driving at centre stage and offer optimised arcade racing characteristics, rich and varied range of mission modes, lively scenarios, enhanced tuning options and a great variety of cars.

When the Formula 1 engines roar this weekend at the legendary Hockenheimring, many racing enthusiasts will be longing for more, wanting to test their own driving skills on the famous and freshly rebuilt circuit. In late September, this will be possible without any risk of ruining your car or tires: World Racing 2 includes Hockenheim's rebuilt circuit into the game for PC, Playstation 2 and Xbox. In 2002, the original racetrack of Hockenheim has been rebuild and is now 4,574 kilometres long, with 17 turns and six straights for an improved racing experience.

In World Racing 2, this track will be one of 6 different settings the player will be able to choose from. Developer Synetic has implemented a large and exciting variety of diversified challenges into the game, with over 100 mission races and over 60 different licensed cars.

World Racing 2 puts the fun of driving centre stage and offers optimised arcade racing characteristics, a rich and varied range of missions, lively 3D scenarios full of detail, enhanced tuning options and a great variety of cars.
