Description

Edgestone Expressway is a fairly high-speed course with a variation of undulations, making it suitable for beginners. Even though players will enjoy a good time of going full speed, they have to be careful, especially at the first hairpin and the home straight before the last corner where it's narrow. In Ridge Racer Type 4, it was raced at night, whereas in Ridge Racer 2 (PSP), it was raced at dusk.

Trivia
