Those screen shots look very good. Didn't see any FTR in there though. Guess it is some sort of sponsor conflict issue or maybe it was back in the field, true to life!

I`ve been looking forward to this game for a long time....

and unfortunatly, you are right HSE2 there wont be FTR Falcons in EA Sports' V8 Challenge.

Only Ozemail, CAT Racing ,PWR and Paragon Motorsport will be in the game from the Ford camp and HRT, HYL, Castrol and Pepsi from that other manufacturer..

It will only have 4 Aussie tracks too, the other 4 are Swedish tracks with made up Australian names :crazy1: , as the game is based on a game called Swedish Touring Car Championship.

Codemasters are also releasing a V8 game around June/July
It`ll have all teams except HRT (no big loss) and 7 Aussie tracks.

I`ll be buying both games but the codemasters one looks heaps better.

I have this game pre booked with the games wizards, I have had no word from them on a possible release date.

Was really pissed off with Hardly Normal after they advertised the game for sale on the 15 Dec. I was told by them on that very day that they had 6 on back order. I'm glad I didn't hold my breath.

V8 race driver is due later this year and is better from what I have read. Never mind, I'll just have to buy the both of them!

EA sponser a holden, There are more holdens than Ford in the game, No top running Ford teams in the game end of story.

Also Race Driver will be soooo much better from what i've seen and heard, It will be released in June 2002 on PC DVD ROM

Resist the urge and wait for Race Driver

Thats my 2 cents
