Not only did the standard PAL WO3 have more than the US NTSC version, this version, had bonus features, and was only ever released in PAL (UK).

  • 2 tracks from te japanese version
  • Better AI (more aggressive / better overtaking etc)
  • Better Physics
  • Assegai craft is upgraded: speed +1
  • Icarus craft is upgraded: speed +1
  • More menu options in general (Asks if you want to go to next track / autosave etc)
  • Better lightness in tunnels
  • New characters in name entry (numbers etc)
  • Shadows under AI craft
  • Perfect lap indicators / records

  • Few other bits / tweaks etc
Just started replaying this one, as I have yet again completed fusion.

List of differences between WO3 and WO3 SE(from the official forum)

01 - 8 extra "classic" tracks (3 from WO1 and 5 from WO2097/XL)
02 - 2 tracks from the Japanese version of WO3
03 - AI bugfixes
04 - Enhanced game physics
05 - Assegai craft upgraded (speed +1)
06 - Icaras craft upgraded (handling +1)
07 - "next race" option after gaining a gold
08 - Auto-load of saved data on game start
09 - Brighter visibility in tunnels
10 - Certain "invisible walls" removed
11 - Larger text size on the menu screens
12 - Numeric characters available for player name entry
13 - Shadows under the AI craft
14 - Perfect lap indicators (a red "P" next to a lap time)
15 - Console link-up feature (without having to enter a code)
16 - NegCon replay bug fixed
17 - Weapon pads grey-out for a second after use (in W3O you had to judge for yourself if they were active)
18 - Different system for unlocking the tracks/craft.
19 - SE asks you to confirm if you want to overwrite your saved game. W3O just goes ahead and overwrites your data
20 - Slightly enhanced graphics on the four standard prototype tracks
