Driving Speed 2

Driving Speed 2 is the next iteration of the Driving Speed tech demo.
You need a pretty shit hot graphics card to play it. The minimum spec is a hardware 3D acceleration card, even then some cards will struggle with this game and some cards will fail to run it at all such as the budget Intel on-board graphics chips that are commonly found in budget PCs and laptops.

Please don't email me asking for the source code to the Driving Speed engine. This is a commercial product and contains proprietry information.
