Heres the title screen:



Heres the cart:



(There used to be a James Pond III ROM on this cart), theres a build label visible underneath the RR3 ROM label.)

Big thanks to Qjimbo of http://www.qjim.bo for the assistance in the dump:

Some differences from the final:

* Some RR2 characters are still in there (Kakana, Bunker)
* At least one new character not in the other games, 'Nasty NAT'
* The title screen has a build date, and the tagline 'World Warriors' not 'Tour De Force' as in the final.
* graphical and sound glitches.
* The Japan track crashes - a lot.
* The 'Club' noise (IE when you hit someone with a club) plays at the start of each race.
* Mbote is 'Mobina' in this build and Smythe is 'Singh'.
* Bike descriptions are different - some of them look like theyre from RR2.
* After race comments are mostly from RR2.
* Bunker has a cop sprite, and can arrest you as such.
* Repoman's comments are different from the final.
* In options, you can select both engine noise and Music playing at the same time.
* Each race always starts with a car behind the starting line for some reason.
* Cheats are enabled by default for debug.
* Things like ££ amount, your bike etc are not reset on a Game Over.
* Cops will still arrest you in snitch mode.
* Cops have different comments in snitch mode.

In the pic you can almost see through the label to see the text behind it. Is it possible to make that out on the real item?

Looks like it says "James Pond III" and then "Beta 3A", or something similar.

By the way... Before you're selling it or anything, I'd try to make an overdump of the ROM, just in case the Road Rash 3 data doesn't fill the cartridge and there's any leftovers of James Pond III (or any other build) in the supposed free space after it.
