Description from the packaging.

Grand Prix racing simulation.
By Rick Koenig.

The first race car challenge for simulation fans.

Join the legendary Ferrari racing team and take charge of the Ferrari F1/86. As complex as a modern warplane, it accelerates from 0 to 175 mph in 10 seconds and corners up to 3 G's.

Design your vehicle from engine to suspension, from gear ratios to fuel mixtures. Then race against the hottest Grand Prix drivers in the world on 16 actual Grand Prix courses, each accurate to the meter. Careen through turns, roar down the straightaways and "drag to the flag" at the finish line.

Monaco at 180 mph. A crash and burn could blow your season.

Put together a winner.
Switch engines, change the suspension, adjust gear ratios. Every modification makes a difference you can feel for yourself on the Ferrari test track at Fiorano.

Win the Grand Prix.
Simulated intelligence of actual Grand Prix racing opponents will separate the dreamers from the drivers.

Hug the road.
Analyze your aerodynamics with performance graphs from the Fiorano wind tunnel. Test air speeds and wing angles to set up your car with optimal drag and downforce.

Harness your horsepower.
In the Dyno Room, try different fuel mixtures, test the cooling system, electrical system, engine ROM, and turbo-chargers.
