Lotus II: RECS is a racing game developed by Gremlin Graphics Software for the Sega Mega Drive. It is a sequel to Lotus Turbo Challenge. Despite its name, it is actually a port of the Amiga game, Lotus III but with an added level creator (the "Race Environment Construction System" or "RECS" part of the title).
