You may wish to wear your nostalgia goggles for this one!
Spotted this on /r/games and felt it was relevant enough to warrant posting here. Personally, I can remember playing a Ridge Racer game in the late 1990's to early 2000's, can't recall if it was this one or the one before it.
Either way, I think this is a curious and/or funny little time capsule, preserved for whatever reason... It's interesting to poke around it and see how UX and design has changed and improved so much over the span of 13 years.
