Advance Racing is a game for the Game Boy Advance released in September 2001 in Japan, December 2001 in America and February 2002 in Europe.

It's similar to GT Advance, but has more cars and more tracks, and a different simulation mode. This game and the whole series, have usually easter eggs on fake car parts names, reversing the name of famous Nintendo characters to make the fake name. The sounds in this game are recorded from real cars, except the drift sound, which is actually produced by one car and used in all.

Trivia

  • Even though this game is for the GBA, the name 'Advance' doesn't come from the console. In future releases for Gamecube, DS, Wii and 3DS the name 'Advance' is kept, and an earlier title for GBC was scrapped.
  • Reversing the fictional 'Oiram Repus' Oil name you get Super Mario.
  • The start of the game is a pilot, since it shows the player entering a dealership (which in the actual game is only possible after getting at least one license done).
