Forgot to add START PAINTKIT.bat file for starting the paintkit. Everything else is the same.
Please read my previous comment on how to use this portable version of ICR 2.
Here's the portable package:

Seems that a lot of people have problems starting the game. Here's the DOS Full RIP with additional carsets as a portable version, pre-packed with dosbox 0.74, just extract it and start the game by clicking on START THE GAME.bat
Although this pack is portable, you may have problems starting the game if the path to the game folder is too long. Keep it short - something like D:\Games\ is fine.
Do not extract it on your system drive C:

If you get couldn't find Indycar2.exe
You have to mount game in dos config and in the auto exec section. See CJ NEMETZ as an example.
Where CD stands for change directory or change folder. So if your game was in dos\Games\Icr2 on your computer it would be
Then the name of the game exe to start the game Indycar.exe
If you put a space then -h after the exe (Indycar.exe -h) you get better graphics too.

"Anyone managed to get the Windows version running?"
It's here on MyAbandonware and it's called CART Racing.
You just have to extract the contents of SierraCartRacing.iso to an empty folder and you can start the game from WINDY.EXE
For me it works "out-of-the-box", no compatibility settings and no additional software needed.

Guys, you can find the full version of this on archive.org, and sierra online still has the patches up for download as well, ICR2.net has the mods, check out GPLaps on youtube for a tutorial on how to properly acquire and install this game.

Dis Is Friggin Weird... When I'm In Safe Mode On My PC The Game Runs Perfect But Normally It Doesn't. Explain This plz

Figured out how to run it, with sound. Make a folder in your C:/ drive called "games"
Place the INDYCAR2 folder in there
Then on DOSBOX:
mount c c:/
you can use the last line to launch any .exe in the folder

when this first came out, it had some of hte best graphics for a racing game for it's time. The 3d polygons still look pretty decent now, decades later actually.

I get a "Unable To Find INDYCAR.EXE in ``" when running it through DOSBox.
Any hints? Tips? Tricks? Amusing anecdotes?

Wow! Runs great in DOSbox. Very fun... And very drive-able, unlike a lot of the F1 games out there (just my opinion, folks), old or new. Thanks for making it available again!

don't mount the indycar II directory as C:
you have to mount your C: as directory before it, i have mine in games\indycar2
then i just...
mount c games
for whatever reason its config is looking for indycar2 as a subdirectory

What do you mean the download has no sound I downloaded the Mac version of the game and it says it's a Mac file. So I can't run the game.
Josh 2017-08-19 1 point DOS version
When I try to run it in DOSbox I get "unable to find indycar.exe in '' "
what does this mean? Can somebody help?
Saiph 2016-01-14 2 points DOS version
I have ICR2 installed under DOSBOX, and sound works fine. Make sure you have DOSBOX set to emulate a standard SoundBlaster card, and run the ICR2 SETUP.EXE to select this. You may have to try SoundBlaster first, then SoundBlaster-16 etc. but you should find one that works eventually.
One extra tip: If you just run "INDYCAR.EXE", the game will have VGA 320x200 graphics. Try running "INDYCAR.EXE -h" and you should get SVGA 640x480 graphics instead.
