GTR 2 – FIA GT Racing Game is a sports car racing simulator developed by Blimey! Games and SimBin Studios (later Sector3 Studios) for the x86 PC and is a sequel to GTR. Since its release in September 2006, it has received widespread acclaim. The game simulates the 2003 and 2004 FIA GT Championship racing series.

Modding[edit]

One of the reasons GTR 2 has been so popular is the ability to create custom content for the game. This has led to a large community of players who create new vehicles and tracks to race with.

Reception[edit]

  • IGN's award for Best PC Racing Game of 2006.
  • GameSpot's award for Best Driving Game of 2006 as well as the Best Game Nobody Played of 2006.
  • GameSpy rated it the 9th best PC game of 2006.

The editors of Computer Games Magazine presented GTR 2 with their 2006 "Best Simulation" award. It was a runner-up for their list of the year's top 10 computer games.[1] It also won PC Gamer US's 2006 "Best Racing Game" award.[2]
