Test Drive Le Mans is the official game of the internationally famous Le Mans auto race, which dates back to 1923. Players can select from a series of faithfully re-created Le Mans circuit tracks that wind through the Sarthe region of France, and can choose between 32 cars that reach speeds approaching 200 mph. Also, race fans can compete in GT1, GT2, and prototype classes and choose from 24 officially licensed racing teams.
Along with distinct engine sounds, the cars also exhibit realistic engine conditions, so racers need to factor a pit strategy into their racing. Lighting effects around the tracks mimic the race's 24-hour cycle from day to night to day. Precise road conditions and collision effects allow for realistic crashes, spinouts, and flips that players can feel thanks to the game's Dual Shock Controller support. If that's not enough, try the two-player split-screen option or the endurance championship mode, where players can elect to go the whole 24- hour race or compress it into more manageable amounts of time.
