This game follows the 98 Championship of the World of GP motorbike racing with 500cc bikes raced by the likes of Michael Doohan, Max Biaggi, Alex Creville.

GP500 gives you a choice of the 14 circuits raced in 1998, the real riders and 6 different bikes (the V2s and V4s, and the Modenas KR3 V3).

Kenny Roberts Jr. tested the bikes' physics models, so they are very accurate to drive, making GP 500 an accurate simulation not suitable for beginners.
