Mulholland drive and aqueduct race in Street Rod 2

When you challenge an opponent in Street Rod 2 you have the option to race on Mulholland drive or the Aqueduct.

Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive is a road in Southern California named after the civil engineer William Mulholland.
When you drive on Mulholland Drive in Street Rod 2 you’ll notice it’s a twisty road which goes up and down and has side slopes. The designers of Street Rod 2 did a good job because the road in the game has a lot of the features the one has in real life.

Watch the video for some background information about Mulholland Drive.

Aqueduct race

It’s said it resembles the dry concrete canal of the Los Angeles river and I must admit, there’s a striking resemblance.

My best guess is the designers of Street Rod 2 indeed had the movie Grease in mind when they thought of possible racetracks.
