It doesn't seem like there's a GUI to change the graphics settings, so you'll have to do it manually:

Go to:
x:\GOG Folder\STAR WARS Racer\data\config\current
Open video.cfg with Notepad++ or similar and change the settings to enable max settings:

VIDEO REFLECTIONS=ON
VIDEO ZEFFECTS=ON
VIDEO DYNAMIC_LIGHTING=ON
VIDEO VSYNC=ON
VIDEO LENSFLARE=ON
VIDEO ENGINEEXHAUST=ON
VIDEO TEXTURE_RES=3
VIDEO MODEL_DETAIL=3
VIDEO DRAWDISTANCE=3

and a bonus controller tip:
if you're using a dual stick controller, open current_control.map on Notepad++ and change the last few lines to
JOYSTICK AXIS=RX FUNCTION=ROLL_RIGHT AXIS_RANGE=NEGATIVE
JOYSTICK AXIS=RX FUNCTION=ROLL_LEFT AXIS_RANGE=POSITIVE
that way the right stick will roll in a proper way, and not inverted

now, if only someone could find a way to emulate the rumble...
Great tips, particularly the draw distance that made a huge difference :)

Thank you for taking the time to share this!
will do this when I get home. thanks for the post. someone should add this to the pcgamingwiki article.
I forgot to compare, but from what I saw so far, this is an awesome tip and the game runs just fine with these settings.
Thank you very much :)

TBH, when it comes to the controller (aside from using the triggers as throttle and brake), I run the game like the keyboard controls; left stick is roll left/right (click to engage slide), right stick is pitch up/down and steering (click while pitching down to boost), LB is repair, RB is Taunt, and A/B/X/Y are just what the game assigns them to be. Serious thanks for the extra video settings, though. Even on my desktop gaming rig, some of the integer settings maxed out at '2' on 'High' settings in-game.
