Spend ages playing that game!!
Me too! I never owned it, but my best friend at school used to. About 17 or so years ago I would visit his house and we'd do hotseat racing in GP2, he would later come to mine to play GP3 and then, when GP4 came out, he bought it and I went back to his. Good times.
Did many offline 100% races. Made my own car sets... 1993-2001. It was quite good to mod. "New" tracks like the 1995 version of Imola. A non chicane version of Hockenheim. A program in which you could mod the car sets. I gave them enough power to get to 366kmh/227mph on the first straight of Hockenheim or Monza.
Did you use the keyboard? If so what difficulty setting? We used to make cars too back in the day for GP3, we had a lot of fun doing that.

Do you recommend I update the game with a new 1994 mod? I see there's both early-1994 (Senna + Ratzenberger) and late-1994 mods available.

In GP2 i used the keyboard. It was when i bought GP3 that i started to use the wheel for a Crammond game. Had already GPL though. Had to buy a wheel bc GPL did not like keyboards.

Can remember only slightly mods and so from GP2. Played that game for the last time in 2002 or so. Only this hotlap game we had in TFL did me try to get it reinstalled.

I modded the hell out of GP2. Ran championship seasons for almost every year from 1970, both F1 and Indycar. Good stuff. I remember one guy making epic carsets, including a 1994 F1 carset. They can still be found on http://grandprix2.de/ . I think it was P. Augusto-Lopes and "F.K" who made the best carsets.

I still remember the days of using dial-up to download the carsets (took forever!), splitting them over several floppies (as we had no network at home back then), join them together and loading up the game.

One of my most favorite moments ever was during a career I did when I must have been 7 or 8. Qualified last almost everywhere, somehow everything clicked at Barcelona and I was somewhere down the middle of the grid. Was running P7 at the last lap until Berger (I believe?) retired and I scored a point! I was so proud I printed the result and showed it to everyone :haha:

Good times.

I see your SoS 1937 and raise you CART Fury, which took all the worst and incredibly ludicrous parts of the movie Driven and turned it into a videogame
should be mentioned that it was originally made as a arcade game and was later ported to the ps2.

The thing that bugged me about GP3 was that mechanical errors were fixed before the race even started. If you ran a career race, the AI cars (or yours) would fail at the exact same time every race.

So when I ran a 100% race at Interlagos and sat in P2 until the gearbox blew up with two laps to go, I nearly threw my wheel in the bin, as I realized I was on a death march since I loaded up the damn race.
