Install the Game then the Mod

Once both game and mod have been installed a "Speedway Evo2 Mod" icon will be added to the desktop. On later versions of Windows (Vista/7/8) Turbo Sliders needs to be launched with Administrator privileges. Right-click the "Speedway Evo2 Mod" shortcut and select "run as Administrator" to do this.

2. Starting to race...

Solo

The Evo2 mod contains 140 tracks and 4 bikes upon which to race them. 59 of these are British Tracks and these tend to be the ones most frequently raced. Each track has several racing lines that, with plenty of practice and trial & error, each player can discover and eventually master.

AI (Computer-controlled opponents)

The Evo2 mod sees the limited introduction of AI opponents. These are available on 6 tracks; Byrjun, Cardiff, Coventry, KingsLynn, Poole and White City. To race against them visit the "Players" menu and ensure the "AI fill" setting is 2 or more (0 switches AI off).

Online opponents

After getting to grips with racing STS using Solo/AI play, the next step is to look for fun online servers. These are hosted by BSS members who advertise connection details in the "Servers and IPs" thread on our forum.

Hosting a server

For anyone with a half-decent internet connection (ideally with computer attached to the router using a wired connection), it is recommended that the below instructions are followed in order to host your own server.
