The goal of the GP3 Series is to give young upcoming drivers a chance to develop their driving skills and jump to the next step: GP2 and then Formula 1.

Pista rĂ¡pida, utilizada nas principais categorias de automobilismo nacional e internacional.

Very good job indeed. The Alfa is very well done but the Brabham has wrong gear ratios for the DFY and the Ligier keeps the rear top cover of the engine exausts from the previous year car. Anyway amazing job and a delight to drive!

Thanks for 1.10 updated version! Good work. Now the cockpits are OK. Car shapes are from 79, but it's good, really good enough to drive.

Cockpit colours and Brabham sounds will be fixed soon in 1.1 version of the mod

OK - full settings fixed problem with AI vehicles skins. But still some vehicles have different skin colours in COCKPIT and TVCOCKPIT cams. Lotus in TVCOCKPIT have colour from 1980, but in COCKPIT is still green (like in 1979). Same with Brabham - white-blue from 1980 in TVCOCKPIT, but red from 1979 in COCKPIT view...

I just downloaded this mod. First race I trying with Mansells Lotus. In showroom skin was dark-blue, like in 1980, but in race (cockpit view) skin was still green, like in 1979. Also some AI vehicles has mesh skins... The idea is good, but this mod still need some work, I think...

I figured out how to fix the skins. Under display settings make sure you have Opponent Detail set to "FULL". It worked perfectly for me..
