I have it installed on win xp home sp3. I tried downloading & installing
patch v3.5 but that did not help. It crashes in the middle of racing in
evolution mode. Also I recentlly downloaded & installed all the EA cars.
If that might have anything to do with it.

If it always happens when driving in Normandie, then that's a known bug.

For many people, this is solved by going to the graphic settings and turning off the Lens Flare effect.
If that doesn't help, there's the option of swapping the Sky Textures, see here for details: (there's also a link to instructions if it happens with other tracks, at the bottom of the page)

Thanks for your help. I ended up changing the the sky like you suggested
and that seems to be working. I raced the 356,356A & 356B tournaments
with no crashing. I also changed the lens flare effect, I did that first and
thought that it was fixed. But it crashed durring the 356A race. So I had
to change the sky also.( I like that sky better anyway). Thanks Again.

That's good to hear. :) I know a lot of people used this solution to put a stop to the crashing, especially in the online race community. Guess the game has a few issues with nvidia cards (3dfx was still a major player when this game was developed); lucky for me, the lens flare trick was usually enough to solve it.

Eu estava com problemas somente na pista Normandie. Seguindo a sugestão do colega Remko, eu segui os passos do site e resolvi meu problema. Contudo, estou rodando o NFS Porsche utilizando o Compatibility Administrator 5 carregando no programa o arquivo .sdb da página ( onde existe também um passo-a-passo explicativo. Estou rodando o Porsche2000 em um Windows XP SP3 com um adaptador gráfico Mobile 4 Intel Series. Verifique o outro post sobre o NFS2SE e baixe o Compatibility Admin ...
I was in trouble only in the Normandie track. Following the suggestion of Mr Remko, I followed the steps of site and solved my problem. However, I am running NFS Porsche 5 using the Compatibility Administrator 5 and loading in program the file .sdb from here: ( where there is also a step-by-step explanation. I am running Porsche 2000 under Windows XP SP3 with a graphics adapter Intel Mobile 4 Series without crashes or any other problems.
