    Brazilian Grand Prix
    F1 2015 by Codemasters
    9pm GMT

    This race is part of an ongoing series of races that will follow the 2015 and 2016 seasons, with a summer break to run some 2014 races on the F1 2015 platform. Although these are "club" races so as to be informal and less stringent on attendance, separate Championships may be scored for the 2014 interlude, and the bulk of the 2016 season start. Individual drivers only. Our aim is to re-live online the race we just watched, play the game in the most hardcore manner possible, and have fun. There will be bugs and glitches for sure, but things will get better with time hopefully. Our experience is that F1 2015 has a solid physics engine and is worth the effort.

    @Peter Hooper claims this to be one his all time favorite tracks, and I'd have to agree. Even in the wet, which is seemingly a good possibility, it's fun. Looking forward to it.

  5. Always has been right there at the top of my list since my early Geoff Cramond Grand Prix days on pc.

    I'll be interested to hear from you guys whether you think they changed the kerbs at turns 2 and 7 or 8 to reflect what we're seeing this weekend. I did run this track the first week the game came out but can't recall there being any difference.

    The FOV is a bit off, but for 15 years old it's stunning. Shows what they could do if they really wanted to. You must have died and thought you were in heaven with GPL.

    Those:inlove: historic tracks!

  10. mcnasty1


    Wish I had a computer worth a crap I would totally get that...well if I had a p.c. id prob be on rfactor race room a.c. or the new dirt..was hoping for sum of those games to come over to xb since the whole windows 10 update ..

    Practice start at 4 est correct robert?
  12. Company called Papyrus, but no longer in business although some of the guys are still in the business. All the cars from 1968 were available.. Lotus 49, Ferrari 312, BRM P115, Brabham BT24, Eagle Westlake T1G. They had licensing problems gwtting the Cooper. Coventry T81B and the Honda RA300 so put in two fictitious cars the Coventry and Murasama in their place.

    Came with all the 1967 circuits (Monza, Monaco, Silverstone, Mosport, Kyalami, Zaandvoort, Watkins Glen, Nordshleife, Rouen Les Essarts (although it was actually held at Leans Bugatti that year I believe), Mexico and of course Spa, and over the years a huge database of additional tracks were added which you can see here:-


    This game will forever hold its place as number one for me :)

By serria or something like that..tracks and all I think were fictional but it was my first racing game I got and was got me into playing games.alm ost afraid to go back and play it now.lol. had a cool view like bumper cam but further back and u could see the front struts and wheels.pretty cool
