I became interested in this game after acquiring Grand Prix and reading about it in the Grand Prix page. I am not a real expert about car racing. I like the game but it just does not feel right when it comes to mimicking F1 races. The system seems to do a good job with NASCAR races.

I live in the United States. When I tried to find a copy vendors where asking $125 for it! After some looking around I found a store that was selling it for $65 and I ordered it from them.

Why is it so expensive here in the US?

Small print run from a small, overseas publisher.

You can find copies now and then for around $50 + shipping so hold out for prices around there. A fantastic game.

Don't worry, you should get your money's worth.

Still remember throwing almost $80 to pick this up.

Would do it again in a heartbeat; such a well made game. Kicked about 2-3 other racing games straight off my shelf.

If this game cost the double, I would still gladly buy it.
This is the best racing game ever.
And I have played a lot of different racing games!

.If you only own one racing game this is the one you should have.

Yep - I would gladly pay this amount to a small publisher who are working as hard as they can to bring us a good game, rather than pay less to a publisher that just churn out shiny objects

I bought my copies direct from Gotha on their website. They offer bundled prices and the recent drop in the value of the British pound makes this a cheaper option now.

Don't forget to buy the expansions while they are still available. There are a few around in the US for sale.
