Both beginners and pros can test themselves against 14 virtual drivers based on the unique artificial intelligence.

Giesse Squadra Corse with its Ferrari F575 and the Team DAMS with its Lamborghini Murciélago. With the introduction of the new Time-Trial Mode nothing stands in the way of the first multiplayer contests. In this mode players can easily save their laps and post the file on the Internet for comparison with other drivers.

More than 140 highly-detailed race cars, a choice of 34 different track designs, breathtaking graphics and outstanding physics provide incredible variety in the race for the championship.
