Grand Prix Challenge is the game I've been the Producer on for the last 18 months (approx). It's been kept a tight secret up until now, which meant I couldn't tell anyone about it :-( But now it's finished and I'm putting this page up to show my friends what I've been doing (much like my GP500 page)

So, what is GPC ?
Grand Prix Challenge is an F1 racing game for the Playstation2 and has some of the best looking graphics you've ever seen on that console.  It runs at a rock-solid 60fps with 22 cars and is (in my opinion) the best F1 game made for the PS2 ever!

Of course I'm slightly biased because it's been my life for the last 18 months!

The team that worked on it can trace it's history back through Lemans (Dreamcast, PS2), GP500 (PC), DethKarz (PC) and you can see the same dedication and enthusiasm that made those great games has continued in the making of this game - it's something that we are all very proud of.
