Just what is this anyway and how does it work?

This is a competition run for players of the Amiga version of Formula One Grand Prix (or World Circuit), competing against each other over a full championship season.

Each race of the season is spread over two weeks: Qualifying in week 1 and racing in week 2. After the first week all the qualifiying results should be e-mailed to the adminstrator where they will be tabulated and posted to the amigaf1gp mailing list. The next week everyone races that race and e-mails their times to the administrator. The fastest overall race time wins, with an extra point being awarded for the fastest qualifying time.

How do I take part?

The basic requirements are that you have an Amiga computer (any model will do), the F1GP (or WC) game published by MicroProse Software and an add-on for the game called F1GP-Ed. You'll also need access to an Internet e-mail account so you can submit your results.

To participate in the championship, you will need to do the following:

  1. Read and understand the rules.
  2. Subscribe to the amigaf1gp mailing list. All championship related information and discussion is posted there. Results are also posted there, before appearing on this web site soon after.
  3. Fill in the registration form.
  4. Read the instructions detailing how you should send your results. This is important - if you send them in the wrong format they might not get noticed!
  5. That's about it really. All you need to do now is to make sure you complete the specified races and submit your results before the respective deadlines. Results will be posted to the mailing list shortly (a day or two) after each deadline, and will appear on this website soon after.
