TOCA 2 Touring Cars (called Touring Car Challenge in the USA) is a racing video game developed and published by Codemasters, and released in 1998. It is part of the TOCA Touring Cars series.

Mainly an annual franchise update of cars and tracks, the game did add more detailed graphics, physics, multiplayer modes and other minor features. Fictional (but realistic) tracks were added, and support races such as Ford Fiestas, Formula Ford and others also arrived. The level of car damage possible during a race was also enhanced, which was a significant selling point compared with the likes of Gran Turismo which had no damage model at the time. The intro (opening scene) of the US version features the song "Sole Sentiment" by Ratman.

Cars and Drivers[edit | edit source]

* It is worth noting that Nigel Mansell did drive races for Ford during this season, and is also on the drivers page in the in-game options, but does not actually feature racing in the game

Other info[edit | edit source]

Similar to the first game, once you select a car, you replace a driver and partner the other driver. However, unlike the first TOCA game, this time you replace the second team driver, not the first.

TOCA 2 is notable for being one of only three PlayStation games (the others being Wip3out: Special Edition and Andretti Racing) to feature a four-player mode using the PlayStation's link cable and split-screen at the same time - i.e., four players compete against each other simultaneously using two PlayStation consoles, with two players per console and connected to two televisions.

TOCA 2 for Windows also has the ability to import skins for each car. They can be edited using any paint/drawing program.
