This is the 'bonus stage 2' track from the Japanese version of Outrun 2. These tracks are from Daytona USA 2 and the Japanese copy of Outrun 2 has much more arcade faithful versions of the tracks (This is the exact track you get when you select "challenge course" in Daytona USA 2: Power Edition). There are very significant differences between the Japanese version and the EU/US versions including:

* Straight away, you'll notice that you start right in front of the swinging pirate ship. In the PAL version, you start around the corner from it.

* In the first tunnel, the purple and grey kerbs do not slow you down unlike the western versions.

* The Bunki between the advanced and expert stages is fully tunneled like the arcade challenge course.

* You enter the expert course in the city straight away (bypassing a sizeable chunk of the "countryside" part of the course which is present in the western releases as well as the separate expert track in the arcade).

* In the western versions, as you are exiting the city, your car is kind of "magnetized" to the right hand wall coming out of the corner. This does not happen in the Japanese version. You can actually see me hitting the grass as I'm so used to countering this phenomena from the PAL version.

I'm sure there are other minor differences too but they are the big ones. The Scud Race / Sega Super GT tracks in the Jap version have some changes over the western releases too. For anyone interested:
