Codemasters announced today that the TOCA series will return with TOCA Race Driver 2006 for the PS2, Xbox, and PC.

“TOCA Race Driver 2006 is a huge project and one we’ve had in the works for almost a year already. The team are doing an incredible job and taking motorsport gaming to a level that no one else is even touching upon and they’re doing it to a hugely advanced point. The refined engine will enable players to really thrash the cars and see the real world results of doing so: radiators will overheat, tires will burnout, engines will blow – the works. “ says Gavin Raeburn, Head of Studio and responsible for the TOCA series at Codemasters.

The developers promise damage effects, head-to-head online multiplayer racing and a game engine rebuilt for a greater degree of simulation. TOCA 2006 will feature 35 different motorsport disciplines such as: British GT (BGTC), Muscle Cars, V8 Supercars, DTM, Monster Trucks, Baja Motocross, Formula Palmer Audi, Historic Grand Prix, Touring Sports Cars, Formula 3, BMW WilliamsF1 Team and many more specialized championships. Each tour will have complete race rules including flags, warm up laps and full car set up.
