Over a year ago, we brought you news of the next entry in the GRID series of racing titles. That was just pre-alpha footage, however. Today we, uh, post-alpha footage, I guess. This short teaser trailer basically says, "Hey you! Yeah You in the tie; do you remember racing?" Well, do you remember racing? If the answer is no, Codemasters seeks to change that with the release of the very first proper GRID 2 gameplay video on February 14. This is especially good news if you happen to be dating Codemasters.
