Michael Andretti's World GP
Get ready to jump behind the wheel of one of the sleekest, meanest racing machines ever built -- the Formula One. With a little practice you'll earn a shot at being number one on the Grand Prix circuit.
Your Racing Machines
Take your pick from any one of four Formula Ones built for top speed and performance.
Once you've picked a car and climbed into the driver's seat, make sure to look overthe instrument panel. To make this top flight racer scream around the track you'll have to master braking, accelerating, steering, and shifting.
Keep your car in top form and stay ahead of the pack by monitoring speed, RPM's, your race position, lap time, laps remaining and tire damage.
ProTip: Beginners should try the standard Ferraris V12. The Honda V10 is great for drivers who haven't mastered manual gear-shifting. For maximum output on long, straight tracks try the Chevy Lola.
The Practice Mode
Before you head for the big time -- the Grand Prix circuit -- you better check out the Practice Mode to get a feel for the way your car handles on the different tracks. World GP's Practice Mode lets you take any of the four different cars for a spin on any of the sixteen different raceways. Better yet, Michael Andretti himself is only too happy to talk through the tricky parts of each the different speedways.
To maintain maximum speeds around curves, hold the A and B Buttons down simultaneously as you navigate the curve.
Get Set for the Green Flag
Ready for a real race? Well, pick your favorite track, grab a buddy and start your engines. The Two Player Mode pits you against an- ayer, or if there's no one a professional driver.
There's 13 famous international racers just waiting to match machines with you, including Michael Andretti himself.
The Grand Prix
With practice, skill and maybe just a little luck, you're ready to compete in the Grand Prix. To win the coveted title of Grand Prix Champion you'll have to compete in races worldwide and win more points than any of the other Grand Prix racers. This is easier said than done! To enter the Grand Prix you've got to qualify. Zip around the particular race track where the race is being held five times-and here's the catch-you must go faster than at least one of the four leading racers! If you don't make it, you sit in the pits and watch the other tour racers battle it out! But get a qualifying time and you'll get a starting position as well as the chance to earn points towards becoming the Grand Prix Champion.
After you complete each level in the Brand Prix Mode, save the game and return to the Practice Mode for a little warm up on the next Brand Prix track.
