The greatness of the game matches the greatness of the BTCC at that time.
And oh, the sounds! My personal favourite was the Vectra (external view). The sounds were done very well, especially in-car, and particularly when you would skip over the gravel. Sounded exactly like it did on the telly (with those wonderful mid-cockpit shots and internal mics)..
And those little things like your driver shaking his fist, or what I believe was the first use of a dynamic cockpit view, complete with functioning mirrors and a swiveling drivers 'head cam' perspective. Codies really were ahead of their time. And I'm very glad to see that the same ToCA mentality can be found in their F1 games.
The only thing missing from the game was the smells you'd experience at a BTCC meeting!
