Grand Prix Legends
Description official descriptions
Grand Prix Legends is a racing simulator based upon the 1967 Formula 1 season, cars and tracks.
The game mimics the physics and behavior of the original cars, which are notoriously difficult to drive in real life. You can take part in practice, single races (with variable opposition) or the full 1967 Grand Prix season racing on classic tracks like Monaco, Rouen, Kylami, Monza and the 174 corner, 14 mile long old Nurburgring circuit.
The game supports steering wheels and pedals as well as other peripherals. Internet & network play for up to 20 players is also supported.

Grand Prix Legends appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
The Honda RA300 and the Cooper T81B do not appear due to licensing reasons. (They were both replaced with fictional manufactures.) There exist third party patches on the Internet to fix these problems.
In Grand Prix Legends, the French Grand Prix is raced at Rouen-Les-Essarts. In real life however, the 1967 French Grand Prix was held at the Le Mans Bugatti Circuit. The missing track can be downloaded on the web.
Includes a 100+ page strategy guide by Steve Smith, former contributing editor of Car and Driver Magazine.
Jackie Stewart was to appear in this game, but was not included due to licensing reasons. It has been rumored that Stewart has commented on the game as being more difficult to drive a vehicle in Grand Prix Legends, than the actual 1967 Formula 1 cars. As of 2009, footage of Stewart commenting on a mod of the game exists on the internet.
About 200,000 units were sold.
