0.9.8 r4600 GSdx r4600 SPU2-X r4600m The game works ok but have graphical issues (blinking menus and in races the cars dont have textures). The sound seems OK, no issues found so far. Is pretty demanding with scaling. Needs powerful CPU and GPU. H3llRaiser

Needs EE cache to boot. Texture on cars is corrupt when using Bilinear (Forced), Trilinear (Forced) or Trilinear (Ultra/Slow) texture filtering.

The same applies for the Direct3D 9 and 11 Hardware Renderers. Slight memory leak when driving around the track.


  • The game sets to widescreen when it is prompted by the 16:9 ratio setting in the PS2 internal menu.
