Cars: Mater-National Championship is the sequel to Cars - The Video Game. It was released two years before Cars: Race-O-Rama. The game takes place in Radiator Springs as players take the role of Lightning McQueen and Mater, as they prepare themselves for the 1st annual Mater-National Championship against many race cars around the world.

Plot

The game focuses on the first ever Mater-National race held in Radiator Springs by Lightning McQueen and features an improved world as well as new characters. New characters featured are Emma, a small white and pink rally car from England, Gudmund, a cocky 1980 Audi Quattro rally car from Sweden who has loads of headlights and loves driving through caves at night, Otto, a German tuner car who doesn't understand the concept of speed limits, Koji, a red, grey and white Japanese drift car who loves drifting and Giovanni, a tough-looking but very nice red Ferrari Enzo from Italy. Ornament Valley, Radiator Springs, and Tailfin Pass have all been updated. In Radiator Springs, new rock formations have been cut, and Fillmore has opened a nature park. In Ornament Valley, there is a construction zone, an airport, and several new rock formations to explore. In Tailfin Pass, roads have been completely revamped, and there is a new mine and an abandoned western town to drive through. But some of these are blocked off and can only be played in races, and as a result to this, the three areas are smaller than in Cars - The Video Game.

Characters

Returning to the game

New to the game

Emma

"Emma is spunky and cute, with just the right amount of self-deprecating charm. She's England's reigning rally car champion, as popular for her personality as she is for spraying mud all over her competitors. She's come to the Mater-National Festival to compete in the Rustbucket Race Series, and is a little star-struck when she meets its resident champion, Mater."

Otto von Flasenbottom

"Given Otto's exquisite German engineering, you might expect him to be a perfectionist. He's certainly focused on racking up the wins, but he's also having a great time doing it. Otto's got a rock star attitude, and he knows what he likes - and he likes to drive fast. He spends a lot of his free time cruising the Autobahn back home, and doesn't understand the concept of speed limits."

Gudmund

"Gudmund is the reigning rally car champ of Sweden... and a bit of a wild man! He loves to stir things up both on and off the track and takes any challenge head on. With his huge headlights, he's happy kicking up dirt clouds in the middle of the night, even if he's the only one out there. He's got a dry, off-kilter sense of humour, but he's a fair, fun and friendly competitor all the same."

Koji

"Koji comes from the world of downhill Touge racing commonly known as drifting. Much of Koji's success is attributed to his light and maneuverable style of driving. He prides himself on his ability to take turns with wide, screeching, smoking powerslides. Koji treats his sport as a science - he's extremely competent, but he's not so focused that he forgets to have fun."

Giovanni

Giovanni, a tough-looking but very nice smooth red Ferrari Enzo from Italy. He is also a fan of Lightning McQueen, who inspired him to be a racer. Luigi and Guido claim to be his biggest fan. He was the final boss character that Lightning McQueen races in the video game.


Yuri

Yuri is a Russian Rally car, among others joined the Mater-National Championship. He is first seen in the Road Race: Inside The Turkey and in seen again in the Road Race: Canyon Run. His license plate is YURIKAA. This is a reference to his catchphrase, "Yuri-Kaa". He doesn't appear in any cutscenes and he has no backstory or introduction, very little is known about him and he is one of the only cars seen throughout the entire series who is Russian.


Philip

Philip came to Radiator Springs, but he drove on the wrong side of the road (because in the U.K., they drive on the opposite side of the road) and nearly hit Lightning. Lightning said that he was going to teach him to drive on the correct side of the road in the U.S., but that soon turned into a race.

Issues

Before the launch, they were trying to copy all of the roads from Cars - The Video Game into Mater-National, plus the newly designed roads for the three areas of Carburetor County. Unfortunately, there were some problems. If all was included the frame rate would be close to about 20 or 40. The only way to unlock the roads is to see to win and get all bolt banners in the game. If that wasn't the case, the player could try some cheats, if it couldn't, the player could forget about it. Other issues where that for some reason: You can drive around the areas as Monster McQueen which is faster than the normal McQueen. The stadium in Mater-National is actually the Radiator Springs Raceway and for the first time ever, Chick Hicks was not in the game. Also, Mater-National has some border issues that don't connect but are shorter because of the designing issue.
