Pro Racer has all the excitement of race day. A range of cars for all abilities and exciting tracks to race on make for a great challenge. The Rally Mode and helpful tutorial also add to the fun, helping you get the most out of your driving skills and prolonging the challenge of the game's tough courses. If you're up to the task, Pro Racer will push your driving skills to the limit.

This budget-friendly racing game features a choice of six cars and three track options: short course, long course, and mirror course. Customize each race with a choice of camera angles and view your top finishes with the replay function. Learn the ins-and-outs of each vehicle by completing the in-game "driving school."

Races have the player racing against 3 opponent racers. Players try to attain the fastest lap times and the fastest total race time while trying to defeat their opponents. The players fastest times can then be saved.

The game also contains a brief tutorial that explains the controls and some techniques of racing.

* Novice, Intermediate and Expert cars to suit all abilities
* Choose to race over Short, Long or Mirror courses
* Select Grip or Drift handling models to suit your own racing style
* Race an ongoing challenge over the courses you've accessed
