GRAND PRIX
EVOLUTION

by Whills​


This work is a tribute to sim racing history.

Inspired by Geoff Crammond’s Grand Prix series released in the 1990s, this addon features the faithfully recreated vehicles from the original series. You will experience the evolution of the Grand Prix racing and its simulation during the golden years.

Original games (Formula One Grand Prix, Grand Prix 2, Grand Prix 3, and Grand Prix 4) were firstly released in 1991, 1996, 2000, and 2002 respectively. Click here to watch the original gameplay.

This addon was firstly released for rFactor, then converted, optimized, and updated for Automobilista.

Try rFactor version:

A great mod just became even better. Nice touches and still great arcadish-simulation FFB+physics couple which makes for a great single and multiplayer base.
The sound and cockpit updates sound are really nice additions. Thx for your work again.

Great mod! Great quality. You nailed it with the physics and the FFB. I think it is right in the sweet spot. Not hardcore but not arcade either. Thanks for your work.

Hi!
Awesome work... but I think there's an issue with the 1994 season. Left rear suspension is hitting bottom with the same ride height as right rear. Can you check it please?

This is wonderful!

However I wich it would have more rounded tires and cockpits. Also AI shouldn't drive trough players wheels. ;-)

This is absolutely amazing. I initially dismissed this as a gimmick or novelty but after watching the GPLaps video I had to download it. Blown away by the quality. Is there any chance we could have a real names option for the GP1 cars please? That's what I had on the Amiga.

I was so looking forward to seeing Grand Prix in VR (https://forum.reizastudios.com/threads/ams1-working-in-vr.14245/) but only the GP3 version has the full cockpit modelled, in VR it is extremely disconcerting to drive an F1 car with no seat and no bodywork!

This MOD is brilliant. Super fun, it brings me back to my Pentium 100 and my GP2 CD-ROM in the late 90s. Would be possible to create a version with proper steering rotation (something around 450-540)? I understand the current values are probably based on the original games, but would be great to have those now matching to our current wheels. And how to remove the intro logo and the new song? I dislike when a MOD changes some of the default content in the game without disclaimer.

Thank you for you review!
You can change the steering rotation of the 1998 cars in the garage menu: https://www.racedepartment.com/attachments/image_134-png.403404/
You can also change them by editing the .hdv files with notepad, you can find these files in the mod folder (they are form91.hdv, form94.hdv and form98.hdv):
you can search and find the lines like:
SteeringRotation=(180, 10.0, 19)
SteeringRotationSetting=9
it means that the default steering rotation is 180+10*9=270 degrees. The minimum value is 180 degrees, the maximum value is 180+10*(19-1)=360 degrees. You can change the values to fit your needs.
You can remove the intro logo and menu song by editing the .srs file in the "series" folder, open it with notepad and just remove the lines: MovieDir=GAMEDATA\VEHICLES\GRAND_PRIX_EVOLUTION\#Support\
MusicDir=GAMEDATA\VEHICLES\GRAND_PRIX_EVOLUTION\#SOUNDS\MUSIC\
then you will have the original logo and menu music.
