No other racing game lets you see and experience the true impact of spectacular real race car collisions to the level TOCA Race Driver 3 does.

In preparation for the game's launch on February 24th, pull on your crash helmet for the new "Damagevideo, now available online at

The TOCA series has pioneered the use of damage visuals and physics so you can really experience the reality of what happens when you don't remain in total control of a 500bhp race car! TOCA Race Driver 3's advanced Terminal Damage Engine is hugely rich in its visuals thanks to incredible particle effects and far deeper in terms of physics that effect your car's handling and ultimately your race result.

The additional particle effects really show the punishment you car's receiving: sparks fly spectacularly when you bottom out and end up grounding the car. You'll see windscreens shatter, wings get ripped off, spoilers break and fly from the car. Plus, new game effects will show incremental amounts of damage as bodywork realistically deforms around crumple zones during a race.

Delivering 100 times the level of damage effect detail over its predecessor, TOCA Race Driver 3 slams into retail on February 24th for PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC.
