a full GP3 Season 2000 Installation
installation of GPxPatch v2.03+ (to run the carset)

Package Contents:

105 car-liveries, including normal cars, nontobacco cars, all special car versions we have seen during this season (e.g. in Monza, Indianapolis). The very most changes in car-designs are included too (lots of Jaguars and Minardis etc.)
21 cockpit-liveries
145 pitcrew and jackmen-graphics
15 different helmet-files
17 different performance files with driver- and team-names
2 tyre types [Bridgestone and Michelin-tyre graphics]

What it does:

What it does not:

  • Together with GPxPatch 2.03 this set provides single car sets performance-data and driver/team-name data for each track with only one installation. That means you don't have to install a new car set when you want to enter a "non-tobacco"-track. You just select the track you want to drive on and GPxPatch loads the right cars and data for this track automatically.
  • The performance data are very close to the real season 2001 qualifying and race-results so you can play your part in the last Formula 1 season.
  • All changes of drivers (Frentzen <-> Alesi, Frentzen <-> Zonta, Burti <-> Mazzacane etc.) are already included and will happen where they really happened in real F1. You don't need to change anything yourself in your game for that.
  • It DOES supports common championship seasons with GP3's championship mode. All driver-changes and performances will be where they were in the real 2001 season, e.g. Zonta in Montral and Hockenheim instead of Frentzen. Yoong for Marques for Monza, Indianapolis and Suzuka etc. For the limitations in using championship-season-mode please refer to the FAQs.
  • When you modify the team and/or the driver name you want to drive in the gp3 driver-menu, then this will have NO effect. Because all this data is loaded with the track, the game will overwrite all your settings in the driver menu. Driver menu is no longer connected with the ingame.
  • It does not provide the track order of 2001 (and you should NOT use GPxTrack to get the right order!!!).
  • It does not include team or menu-arts. So you will not have 2001 driver-pictures in the driver-menu and you will not have the right cars on starting-grid screen. (You can download & install fitting menu arts & starting-grid cars in a seperate package)
