Sega Touring Car Championship Special (セガツーリングカーチャンピオンシップスペシャル) was a special version of the Sega Model 2 arcade game, Sega Touring Car Championship. It opened as a medium-scale attraction in Tokyo Joypolis, before also appearing at Okayama Joypolis and Kyoto Joypolis.
Sega Touring Car Championship Special follows in the footsteps of the older Sega Rally Special Stage being a specialised version of Touring Car where players rode inside full-sized vehicles acting as motion simulators, while looking out of the windscreen at a giant projected image of the game.
Unlike Sega Rally Special Stage, however, Sega Touring Car Championship Special was built with a choice of three cars; the Toyota Supra, AMG-Mercedes C-Class and Alfa Romeo 155, with the Opel Calibra being removed entirely from the game. This meant it was possible to race against two other human opponents (making it the only version of Sega Touring Car to support more than two players), while the footage was shown on three large monitors for spectators to view.
The fate of Sega Touring Car Championship Special is currently unknown.
