Get a feel for each car on a diverse set of tracks including Road Tracks, City Limits, Ovals, Spring Break, and Lost World. Ford Racing 2 is ready to put you in the driver's seat, but are you daring enough to sit there?
Ford Racing 2 is the second game in Eidos' "Ford Racing" series. It includes 30 Ford cars, 16 racing tracks, the ability to race head-to-head, over 30 challenges.

BIOS: SCPH39001, "Simulate VIF1 FIFO read ahead" is an unsafe hack. This hack will cause the game to crash when the camera is in a certain direction. All speedhacks are safe, but high levels of VU Cycle Stealing will cause slowdowns and choppy framerates. Seems to run well, but much testing was not done other than a few races. Small bit of lag on 2D load menus (GPU cap). MyDreamName


  • Widescreen crops the top and bottom of the 4:3 image, meaning less visible viewing area than when played in 4:3.
