This one is supposly alot better than the last... I have not tried it yet.

As promised, a new Australian playable demo for ToCA Race Driver 3 is now online, renewing the opportunity to try out the multi-disciplined modern racing simulation being created at Codemasters. This V8 Supercars 3 demo contains the Phillip Island GP Circuit for V8 Supercars, the Hockenheim GP Circuit for DTM touring cars, and the National Dirt Raceway Stage 5 track for Baja Motocross buggies.

Toca sucks, nuff said, if you want a multi car and series format racing game, actually it is a sim, not a game, just get rFactor, it rocks !!! Lots of mods in the works, and a few already available.

I've tried several TOCA demos and they were all terrible. I'm a Need For Speed fan so TOCA just doesn't cut it for me, sims bite.

do not insult real sims by calling toca a sim, lol, it is FAR from a sim , want a true sim? GTR, F1 Challenge 99-02, rFactor, play those with ALL driving aids off, then you're playing a sim

It's quite good. Graphics aren't impressive, but gameplay is good and it's easy to play.

Racing sims (the real ones) kick ass! Itīs makes you experiece what kind of work racers and their teams do in real life, especially if you compete against skilled guys in online races. It can be so tense, that an action racer almost seems boring, because you have to be perfectly concentrated every second. Then the whole setup development, itīs still to some degree a mystery to me, at least with GTL, where you have over 30 cars that all react a little different to changes. The learning curve is extremely steap with racing sims, but if you dare to try to master it, it is extremely rewarding!

Grand Prix Legends has burned one of my best moments in PC gaming in my brain! After hundreds of laps on the Nurbingring (13 miles, over 70 corners) I managed a 7.05min laptime and that with all aids off, manual shifting, stock setups (just reduced gas for only 2 laps). It was AFAIK 10 seconds faster than the demo lap from the legendary Doug Arnou that came with the game. I felt very proud but that was probably Dougīs first ever lap at the Green Hell and I wouldnīt be suprised if the record lap (in that game) was a 6.50-6.55. :D
