Namco re-worked it into Ridge Racer, released the following year in 1993.
2) SimDrive used was a curved wrap-around screen for the display.

3) Gouraud shading is an interpolation method used in computer graphics to produce continuous shading of surfaces represented by polygon meshes. In practice, Gouraud shading is most often used to achieve continuous lighting on triangle surfaces by computing the lighting at the corners of each triangle and linearly interpolating the resulting colours for each pixel covered by the triangle.
