Description of Big Red Racing

One of the few games that really provide the most bang for your buck, Big Red Racing delivers furious arcade racing on 24 tracks, each with 2 vehicles to choose from-- for a total of 48 vehicles that range from a jeep to inflatable boat and a helicopter.

The courses themselves are also nicely varied, with excellent SVGA detail-- you'll race on the red track of Mars and get wet in the US water race. Awkward controls and none-too-bright computer opponents mar this otherwise great game. It may not be realistic, but it's a helluva fun in multiplayer modes.

The Windows version doesn't work on XP, 7 or anything newer. It says it's not a valid Win32 file. Same with the .exe included on the patch.

@TheOligopolist thank you, got it fixed in the archive

The .cue file included with the CD version points to a .bin of a different name.

To rectify this simply open up BRRacing.cue in notepad and change the first line:

FILE "BRRacing.bin" BINARY

and save.

The ISO version straight up doesn't work.

i love this game, i have played it on and off for a few years...

@Quarty : the CD ISO contains all the musics in standard audio CD format, thus weighting a lot. Added the RIP version now.

Why is 490 Mb of size? I found the same game in another site al 25 Mb, working perfect.
The game is wonder and back my memory. Really great!!

Blast from the past

This game was pretty cool. Unfortunately there's not a good screenshot of it here. But yeah, definitely worth a check out for nostalgia. I remember being confused by the title, because I didn't understand how Racing could be described as "Red". :) Somebody later informed me that the developer was called "Big Red". :)

umdesch4. Upload your version :)

I'd play this game a LOT when children with bestfriend :) on a PII 350Mhz i guess.

I like some of the vehicles on this game.
I love italian races with shit old cars.
I love the "dirt" Trucks dirt races on france and egypt.
The Kenya with monstercar/truck
And also the plain boat!!!

I suggest anyone to try old style games.

PD: We play as one have to catch the other by consistent hit ignoring the race.

i cant get it to work :( what do i need to do?

Carlsgro 2013-01-08 0 point DOS version

This game is awesome. I bought this as a 3 pack of games cheap. 10/10

Thess 2012-08-25 1 point DOS version


Nope its the full version.
Compression is better in a zip over a CD image.
an ISO audio track for example on a CD image will
rip to 15mb(exameple) and its unzipped

In a zip file that track # would go from 15mb to 1mb or less.
MP3s also prove this.

This was one of perfect games in its time with multiplayer gaming we played all the time when we had enough of FPS games (read duke nukem)

admin 2011-12-19 0 point DOS version

it's the full version

umdesch4 2011-12-18 1 point DOS version

I have an ISO image of the original CD for this game, and it is 82 MB. This is only 28 MB, so I assume it's just the demo version.
