Description from the packaging.

The fastest race on this planet... or any other.

The fastest, hypersonic, nitro-burning race of your life.
Customize your own turbo-charged machine and prepare to rip through futuristic 3-D environments, subterranean tunnels, abandoned canyons and surreal nuclear landscapes. Link up to eight simultaneous players over the Internet or intranet, just to make things more intense. But be forewarned: miss a hairpin turn, spin out at 180 miles an hour- make one small mistake, and you're vapor. And there's no going back. You've got to get in the race or die.
