Starting in Spring 1950, you begin your racing career in the Stock Car Racing Amateur Cup. Pick from a choice of cars and take part in the qualifier to play the rest of the Championship. Win races to earn money and try out different cars.

In this latest update I have overhauled many of the gameplay systems, balanced stats, scaled down my overall intention of the game and generally polished the game. I now feel as though the foundation is extremely strong and ready for an infulx of content, including cars, tracks and more championship styles including Point To Point Rally and Time Trials.

Please keep in mind that this is a work in progress and will be continually improved upon. Any and all feedback is appreciated so please leave a comment about your experience, especially if it was negative. I want to make Take It Racing 2 a great game!

Please note: the downloadable ROM is also only the Demo. Windows Executable may possibly be coming soon. Please donate to support Take It Racing 2's development.

The first Take It Racing was made over 1 week for GB Jam 8 and the Unexpected Jam. Take it Racing 2 has been in my mind ever since. It took 2 months to complete the first version of the Demo. I have now been working on Take It Racing 2 for over 8 months.
