Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

Hello everyone,

We, nelsonpiquetfan and me are fanatical F1 fans and we both love the turbo-era of Formula One very much.

We decided we're going to create one of the most great F1 seasons in history for rFactor.

It will be a conversion of my F1 1986 mod for EA's F1 Challenge '99-'02, which was a GP4 conversion.


Carshapes and Textures are created by Leolo1974 and Thrasher originally for GP4, about 6 years ago.


All cars have been completed so far, which are:

McLaren MP4-2C (A. Prost and K. Rosberg)
Tyrrell 014 (M. Brundle and P. Streiff)
Williams FW11 (N. Mansell and N. Piquet)
Brabham BT55 (R. Patrese and E. de Angelis)
Lotus 98T (J. Dumfries and A. Senna)
Zakspeed 841 (J. Palmer)
Lola THL-1 (A. Jones and P. Tambay)
Arrows A8 (M. Surer and T. Boutsen)
Benetton B186 (T. Fabi and G. Berger)
Osella FA1G (P. Ghinzani and C. Danner)
Minardi M185B (A. de Cesaris and A. Nannini)
Ligier JS27 (R. Arnoux and J. Laffite)
Ferrari F1/86 (M. Alboreto and S. Johansson)
AGS JH21C (I. Capelli)

NOTES: The Zakspeed Racing car will be the car which was used during pre season tests, which means it's the 1985 Zakspeed car with a car number update and Jonathan Palmer as the only driver. The 861 chassis will be created soon with second driver Huub Rothengatter available as well.

The Lola THL-1 is actually a car which was used for the 1985 F1 season, but we will release an early season package as first, and Lola Haas completed the first 2 races of the 1986 F1 season with the old THL-1 chassis as well. The car is based on the Lola THL-2 and the Lotus 98T chassis.

We think chasey, someone who liked the F1 Challenge '99-'02 edition of this mod very much, will be very happy that we decided to put Elio de Angelis in the Brabham instead of Derek Warwick, which we had put in the F1 Challenge '99-'02 version.

What still needs to be finished:

- Zakspeed 861 car
- Working mirrors
- Completely new cockpits with working LEDs
- Non tobacco liveries
- Windshields for some cars
- Upgrades

We might release an early beta mod, so people are able to give us feedback or even to help us. We are not sure about this, so don't ask for an eventual release date!

Well, I never took the time to post but I have to tell you guys that the reason why this never has been released is due to the fact that my PC crashed and therefore lost all the files. When I've some time I might take on this mod project once again but I can't guarantee anything at the moment. I wish I had released an early beta or something before but that doesn't make any sense right now sadly.

Is this still being worked on?

Quick note:
The reason to use "Formula Armaroli" by Reiza Studio as the "Benetton B186" demo was because ( for a mods"Dummy" like me is easy to Edit real life Car's specification and test Those setting in to the Driving simulation.

This video just to show how accurate an Ai driver compare to human (Lap-time qualifying is one of the way)
This car's physic come from the original except Engine.ini and Gearbox ratio is the fact spec sheet from the real car... and minimum setup to down-force and tire Slip curv tweaking (to make sure to get enough advantage and easy to control the magnificent turbo charging "BMW M12/13" power/ torque configuration ! only car Stablitilty, Traction control,ABS set to "low" with auto up-Shift. all driving aids are "off"
* Gear ratio: 6 speed
4.2:1 /optional (silver stone)

Currently drivable setup are >800hp/11,500Rpm(limit) with engine Boost map set to "3" (Temporary high boost enable) * for qualified laps and overtake

Ai car configuration with virable of engine /sound (780~820hp)

Ps: the whole thing started last year end get bored of "gran Turismo " then check (try again) out this classic rf Modding . Found out this sim had improve a lots, back up by institute year of auto mechanic and audio mixing knowledge , I able to re-config the realism of the sim as part of my hobby in to driving simulator. Hope you sim racer enjoy this add on like i do....(Welcome to setup and modification yours favorite open wheels model )

Seems to be marvellous.

Can you give us a beta version pelase ?
Could help waiting for complete mod.
sardokard on Jul-15-2013

besides I think that modders ared dispersing too much. We have fantastic 1985 mod by valiante and markus. Why nobody ever contacted those guys and used their 1985 mod as a base for 1986 or 1984

Instead we get substandard mods like labombrda -that is really awfull and it just looks like someone wanted to produce it in minimum amount of time, just to release it and be done with it. labombarda mod is utter waste of time

I saw that some people are doing 1981,1986 and 1987 mods but those are all F1C and GP4 conversions
astonbiaggi on Mar-27-2013

No news, I think this mod is dead.
HashiMel on Mar-26-2013
