Scud Race, known as Sega Super GT in North America, is a racing game developed for Sega Model 3 Step 1.5 hardware in late 1996. The first Model 3 racing game, Scud Race is a spiritual sequel to Daytona USA with very similar controls, HUD and visual style, though features supercars rather than stock cars. The working title of this game was simply Supercar, though European flyers suggest that at one point the Scud Race name wasn't deemed final either. "Scud" stands for "Sport Car Ultimate Drive".

Like Daytona USA, Scud Race was based on a real life racing event - the BPR Global GT Series, being sponsored by the BPR Organization. It also features four real-life cars - the Porsche 911 GT2, the Ferrari F40 GTE, the Dodge Viper GTS-R and the McLaren F1 GTR. Renault Alpine GTA/A610s are also featured, but are driven by the computer and cannot be selected by the player.
