- Formula cars and Sports cars
Next to the touring cars RACE 07 also features Formula cars as well as sports cars. To enhance the experience of driving the open race cars we have developed a helmet camera as never seen before. Not only does it accurately resemble the view from inside a helmet, it also has all the visor dynamics the real fan could wish for. The visor gets dirty and can be cleaned by pulling off a protective layer of plastic, the so called Tear-off. This all contributes to a unique experience.

Several tracks are exclusively represented in RACE 07 and are not featured in any other motorsports games.
- Enhanced track dynamics
With RACE 07 all tracks comes with a strengthened attention to details. Focus has been on trying to recreate the atmosphere surrounding real life racing and race tracks. 3D audience and more than double the amount of track side objects are just a few of the steps taken to improve the immersion of actually being on one of the real life race tracks included in the game.
- Car filter
RACE 07 features a car filter that allows you to mix cars and classes as you please. Use the car filter to create single make racing or mix formula cars, sports cars and touring cars.
- Human-like AI opponents that will force you into an error.
The AI in RACE 07 is better than ever. They behave as natural, trying to force you into an error, putting the pressure on by making moves and stressing you by flashing their headlights. You'll have a hard time defending from these fanatics; the strength/aggression of the opponents can also be adjusted in the game!
- Online artificial intelligence
RACE 07 includes online AI which means that you can fill up the field of cars on a server with computer generated opponents. This feature assures a challenging online experience, even if you are just a few people logged into the server.
- Enhanced community appeal; community drivers, customized skins and league-support
RACE 07 has everything racing-communities could wish for. Not only are the loyal fans of SimBin racing games already represented in the game through their names on various cars, they will also be able to host leagues and use their own car skins in the game, creating the ultimate individual championships.
- The two-race-format
RACE 07 truthfully recreates the WTCC all the way to the two-race format of the real WTCC races. The top eight finishers in the first race will switch places on the grid for the second race and the winner of the race session is the player who gathers the most combined points in the both races.
- Bugs and dirt on window
A new version of the bug on window and dynamic weather effects system used in RACE is being introduced for RACE 07, this will also work on the helmet visor and will greatly enhance the immersion factor while playing the game. Functioning window wipers allow you to sweep away both rain and insects.
- Dynamic weather effects
Dynamic water drops on helmet visor and windows are simulated in real-time to simulate the sensation of racing in wet or intermediate weather conditions, the liquids are also being affected by the wind speed.
- Performance monitor
The performance monitor included with RACE 07 is designed to help the player find the best compromise between visual appearance and game performance, the player can set a target frame rate, once set the game will suggest the best suitable graphical settings after having monitored the games performance during a race session.
- New controller interface
With the new controller interface much more attention is paid to the players wanting to drive the cars using a joy-pad, keyboard or utilize the mouse steering option. Added controller logics have been applied to make control of the cars with a joy-pad just as involving and satisfying as with a wheel. The new controller interface allows for several controller profiles to be created by the player.
- Offline and online versions
RACE 07 features the option of choosing between an offline and online version when the player installs the game. The offline version offers all the same content as the online version but the player will not be able to join in online multiplayer races or compete on the official RACE 07 leader boards with this version.

The player will be able to select which settings and sessions to use, to customize the race weekend to his/her liking.
Time attack is a multiplayer mode being played on one PC and should be thought of as a social game mode. The player can compete against friends sharing one PC, by setting lap times and chasing the ghost car of his/her friends, or aim for the top spot on the RACE 07 leader boards. Players can check their positions on the official leader boards after or even during a session.
If the player want to improve lap times or experiment with car setups? Then practice mode is the ideal choice, in practice mode there are no restrictions and sessions can be arranged just as the player likes them.
Championship mode will give the player the chance to experience the 2006 or 2007 WTCC championship. The player will go through the full championship experience, visiting all the tracks of the 2006 or 2007 seasons, experiencing the unique 2-race format of the WTCC including the reverse grid for the second race, being penalized with penalty weights when performing well and much more.
With Custom Championship we want to offer the players an easy to use configuration screen for setting up their own championships. This means the player chooses what car to use and then what track(s) to use, when these choices have been made the game will from these choices generate a new championship file.
In short the player can create a championship using all existing tracks in the game or as little as two when creating a custom championship. The choice of using a one or two race format is available to the player when setting up a custom championship. The choice of enabling or disabling the weight penalty is available to the player when setting up a custom championship.
RACE07 features support for 24 opponents in multiplayer mode. These can be either players or AI opponents, or a mix of both. The option of having AI opponents (or Ôbots') makes sure that even with a small group of players you can still have a full grid of cars.
Multiplayer options are included for both online and LAN. Players can serve and play, hosting the game from their own computer and allowing other players to join or setup a dedicated server, the dedicated server application is included with the game.
