The overall record is held by Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima from Japan who clocked a time of 10:01.408 on July 21st 2007 driving the 1000 hp mid-engined Suzuki XL7 Hill Climb Special.

GTR2 Features :

– starting lights and point to point timer
– Spec & Bump Maps (tarmak, grass, sand)
– Tire marks for asphalt and for gravel

GTR2 doesn’t fully support Point To Point counter so timer works only in the race mode.

Every time you wanna race you must start/restart race. When race started, car located on the starting ‘grid’.
Just wait until green light.

The track works only in the race weekend mode so select race weekend mode and standing race start.
