NASCAR Racing 4 is Papyrus’ next evolution of the award-winning racing series. Featuring the drivers and teams from the 2000 Winston Cup and Busch Series season, NASCAR Racing 4 showcases a revolutionary new 3D physics model that adds realism to the reactions of the cars – with body rolls, the ability to become airborne, and tires that spin and lock up. The cars also feature a virtual 3D cockpit that gives you the ability to look left and right, more dynamic arm and steering wheel movement – enhancing the immersive quality of the game. To further improve the quality of the gameplay, the interactive user interface includes widget sound, and pop-up help for car setup and configuration options. Other driver aids include a novice mode, traction control to limit wheel spin, antilock brakes, and steering/stability control to prevent the player from over compensating when steering.

The title will be showcased at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles in the South Hall booth #1146 May 11-13, 2000.

“With an entirely new, ground breaking physics engine, NASCAR(r) Racing 4 offers everyone a chance to climb into a NASCAR(r) Winston Cup car with their PC and enjoy a riveting experience unmatched by any other driving sim,” said Jim Veevaert, vice-president of marketing for Sierra Studios. “Papyrus Founder, Dave Kaemmer, introduces the novice to the fun and excitement of racing, but steeps the expert in all the subtleties and strategies of the NASCAR(r) racing experience, learning what the drivers know.”
