Welcome to Formula One - 2017 Season MOD!
Hello, guys and gals; It is that time of the year again, and I am exited for what this new 2017 season can bring. New rules, New Cars (with Fins) and New Grip...meaning higher speeds.
Last year you guys made the F1 2016 SEASON MOD a huge hit in the RD Community and I am pleased and humbled by your support. Thanks!!
I still think that F1-2013 is Codemasters best F1 game engine of the series and together we can take it to the next level. I have named this new adventure the SKYFALL F1 2017 EQUINOX Mod. [Because it was born the 20th March 2017 at 20:17 minutes during the equinox].
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making this build. I will try to update and polish it if you guys like it.
