Codemasters announced the return of the TOCA series in TOCA Race Driver 3.

Coming this winter for PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC, race drivers will be competing in a massive variety of the world's most aggressive motorsports, complete with explosive damage effects, head-to-head online multiplayer racing and a game engine rebuilt for a greater degree of simulation.

The TOCA series has now been around for 8-years and has managed to gather a strong fan base of racing gamers. To appeal across the board, TOCA Race Driver 3 will deliver individual game modes that are specifically designed to satisfy the speed-freak and the motorsport simulation fanbase, using all the juice from the enhanced engine.

For those who know their friction circles from their piston rings, there's the new Pro Career mode where you follow a career in a specialist racing discipline - including GT, Off Road, Touring Cars, Historic, Open Wheel, Rally and Oval.

With each discipline representing a different genre of motorsport, you'll progress through championships that cover the breadth of that discipline.

If you want to make it as an Open Wheel race driver, you'll start off in Go-Kart events before progressing to Formula 1000, then further championships including Formula BMW, Formula 3, and all the way up to join the BMW WilliamsF1 Team!

More than ever before, TOCA Race Driver 3's stunning physics and damage engine will take real-life racing to the next level. You may have seen realistic speed and acceleration before, but TOCA Race Driver 3 accurately simulates full tyre wear, tyre and engine temperatures, fuel consumption affecting weight distribution, and real world engine inertia. This incredible detail is simulated on every vehicle, across the entire range of motorsports featured.

Alternatively, if you want to jump straight into some of the world's most powerful cars and see those tyres screech under full power, take the World Tour - an immediate and accessible racing mode. With race-driven cinematic cut-scenes, continuing the series' innovative plot driven narrative, and more championship choices than ever before, the World Tour is the ultimate fast fix of race gaming.

However you decide to race, no TOCA game would be complete without full-on car damage. For TOCA Race Driver 3, the next generation of the series' Terminal Damage Engine is being intensely worked on to create motorsport gaming's most spectacular real-car collisions on world famous circuits.

Featuring 35 different motorsport disciplines, you'll be competing in British GT (BGTC), Muscle Cars, V8 Supercars, D, Monster Trucks, Baja Motocross, Formula Palmer Audi, Historic Grand Prix, Touring Sports Cars, Formula 3, BMW WilliamsF1 Team and many more specialised championships, complete with race rules including flags, warm up laps and full car set up.

For the heavyweight touring car racer, there's also the D and V8 Supercars Career modes, featuring both series' 2005 seasons, complete with car set ups, practice sessions, qualifying races.

TOCA Race Driver 3 is coming winter 2005 for PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC.
