Codemasters' TOCA Race Driver 3 for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC is ready to burn rubber, as the publisher today announced the game has launched at retail.

Building on the multi-motorsport approach of the series, TOCA Race Driver 3 features more than 80 different cars in total, most of which are officially licensed, such as the German DTM, the British GT, and the Australian V8 Supercars. Notable additions over previous TOCA games include Baja trucks, monster trucks, sprint cars, and Koenig-tuned Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Porsches. All the cars in the world aren't worth much without somewhere to race them, so Codemasters also included more than 40 tracks with enough multiple configurations to push the total number of course layouts above the century mark.

PC gamers interested in kicking the tires on the game before committing to a purchase can download the freshly available PC multiplayer demo. The 556MB demo lets 12 players hit the road in Mercedes C-Klasse cars, Renault Cilos, and Dodge Chargers.

TOCA Race Driver 3 is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older and retails for $29.99 on the PC and $39.99 on the PS2 and Xbox. Check back soon for GameSpot's full review.

I called my local gamestop, they had 3 Xbox copies .... went during lunch and got one. I suggest calling and finding out. There are some shipping issues, not sure about the exact problem, but its there, just have to look hard.

Is it REALLY in stores this time? I looked on the 21st, 23rd... I really hope it's on shelves, because I don't feel like making a 4th trip out. I want to play TOCA 3, but I don't want the demo!
