Spirit of Speed 1937 (PC) Preview
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.
