Grand Prix-cision Racing is a turn-based game of motor racing strategy written for the PC by Robert Latorre and made available here with his permission. It runs under Win98/ME/XP/Vista/7. Robert no longer supports the game and I don't have the source code so I am making GPR available "as is".
Each turn, you choose a speed for your car from those available according to the acceleration, deceleration and maximum speeds in your car's specifications (which you can select before the race). Corners can be taken faster if you are on the racing line. If you exceed a corner's rated speed, you use Wear points and may be forced to "roll" on the Chance Table, which might result in a spin or a crash.
Each car may be under the control of a player (that would be you) or the AI, which is pretty decent. Pit stops and weather can play a role. Entire F1 seasons can be raced; the program keeps track of driver and team stats.
