Question Streed Rod remake?

Reading the WHDLoad Street Rod thread, I've remembered an old polish magazine (CD-Action) review, of an unofficial (different name) successor (same team and/or same gameplay, don't remember) of this one.

I think it was around the years 1998-1999, PC only, SVGA graphics.

Anyone remembers?

My blurry memory suggests this *might* have been polish only, so I should get my lazy ass into ye old magazine closet and search for it, but maybe it was widely known?

I know of a street rod 3 project that got nowhere. I hung around the development forum for a while, but nobody was committed enough to finish it sadly. It looked promising.

I *think* this one was pretty much finished, so you might like it gimby.
Alright, so I've never played neither this unknown game nor any Streed Rod, but...

I'd love a new version of Street Rod. It's the only modding/racing game that I know of that's realistic enough to make you need to buy petrol for your car and repair it every time you have a rough race. None of the driving 300km/h with a trunk full of NOS and hitting a brick wall, only to bounce off and keep going like you do in all the Need For Speed games. I like being able to strip my bumpers off and chop the roof to make the car go a little bit faster, I like finding people to drag down at the local diner, and I love finding that next car in the classifieds section of the newspaper.

Street Rod was such a better racing game than most because it was about more than just racing, it was role playing too.
