the precursor to NR2003 and ultimately Iracing, this game rocks.

you need to download the GPLS GPL installer, this patches it all up, improves graphics, better car skins and enables it to run on modern xp systems successfully. the graphics are still good enough today, especially to those of us who take substance over style ( to some degree, as obviously better graphics do help)

there are also 65 66 and 69 season mods too, to really get your teeth into and plenty of tracks, much like nr2003, there is still a huge community supporting this.

This no longer works because the computer technology has left it behind. When is Sierra going to update to 2016 but leave the cars and circuits as per the original

Grand Prix Legends (GPL) is one of the best racing simulators you will ever find. I have been playing GPL since its first beta release about 10 years ago. It based on the 1967 F1 season, so it has all the racing greats from that era, Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jack Brabham, etc and some of the great F1 cars, Lotus 49, Cooper, Ferrari, etc and it also has some of the best track s(from the 1967 era) Zandvoort, Spa (the long track, not the modern short track) Monza, the Ring, etc.

1967 was chosen because it was the last year of the old F1 cars, there was no downforce, no wings, no aerodynamics, no computers, no driver aids, just a simple (but powerful) F1 car and you, the driver. After 1967 all these things slowly started to appear....

The cars when driving them, just feel right, GPL is not an arcade game, or even a racing game, it is a racing simulator and as such it takes time to learn how to drive the cars correctly, slide the cars around, left foot braking, heel and toe, perfecting a four wheel drift never felt so good...

The level of detail in GPL was fantastic when it was launched 10 years ago, and is still great now, you can tweak your car, suspension, springs, gears, tyres, move the weight, adjust ride height, etc.

The original game graphics would look dated now, but there have been many updates for GPL, and the newest version still looks great, all the new track scenery and car skins are awesome. There is still a lively GPL community (just Google grand prix legends and see the raft of websites that come up) who can offer advice and tips and they will share car set-pups, graphics updates, extra tracks, etc.

The community themselves have designed many new cars, grahics, tracks which are all freely available for download from the many websites to enhance the GPL experience. Try a new racing formula (try the 1965, 1968 or the 1970 season, etc) or try racing F1 cars with rear wings, or with new graphics, etc. Lastly there have been many new tracks produced including Crystal Palace, Monza (the old oval circuit), the Isle of Man TT track, Silverstone (the original airfield circuit, Mexico, Donnington, and many, many others.

Install it, tweak the set up, install the updates, add new cars, graphics and tracks and then fire up the engines...

GPL is worth the effort, it rewards those who persevere with it.

Enjoy F1 racing as it was meant to be... 8-)

Unfortunately this game does not seem to run on Windows 7 so a bit of a waste of money really.
