Spirit of Speed 1937 (PC) Preview

Background Info

Screens(12)
Spirit of Speed 1937 conjures up the greatest era of motor racing when the racing car first grabbed the public imagination with its speed, danger and beauty. Imagine racing a six-litre car hurtling around steeply banked tracks at killer speeds; drivers with nothing to protect them but their overalls and a silk helmet; tracks deliberately built for speed not safety. Race the cars whose mere names are legendary: Mercedes, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Napier Railton and Auto Union.

In Microprose's startling re-enactment of 1937 Grand prix Racing you'll get the chance to drive a choice of twelve real racers on nine authentic circuits across Europe and the USA. Take up the challenge in Time Trial, Single Race or Complete Season modes or, try your skills against others in the multi-player modes. Once you could only imagine the experience! Now you can live it.

Key Features

  • Drive the 12 greatest racers ever built from the heyday of motor sport; each with their individual handling characteristics and special quirks.
  • Experience nine different racing venues that became shrines to motor racing history such as Brooklands with its steeply banked curves; the tremendously fast autobahn circuit at Avus in Germany; the Roosevelt Raceway in the USA; the original (and lethal) Monza and the 8.5 mile, sand-streaked circuit at Tripoli, Libya.
  • Drive accurately simulated racing cars that have a special physics model, including individual suspension for each one.
  • Develop the right racing strategy to suit your car and the circuit; follow the correct racing line to suit your racer's capabilities and be aware of its specific tyre wear, petrol, oil usage and braking characteristics.
  • Marvel at the detail. Everything is fully researched and simulated from the wooden dashboard to the throaty roar of those massive engines.
  • Check your oil, water and petrol and decide the right time to make that crucial pit stop - the technology may be a lot simpler but it's less forgiving and more deadly: if you blow your engine, or run out of fuel, you're out of the race!
  • Immerse yourself in the authentic period detail: the Thirties soundtrack, the interface styling and the realistic newspaper articles.
