Long gone are the days of the glorious Grand Prix Manager. Hard to believe there isn't a market for it... anyone with good alternatives?

Why an alternative when GPM2 even has a 2014 MOD?

You can run GPM2 in within Dosbox in a current Windows PC. You will even find the game itself (legally I believe) to download on the Internet.

In GPM2 there's an rookie named "Alonso". I always wondered if this is the real Fernando Alonso. The game was released 96. I'm not sure if Alonso was that famous back then.

Anyway, loved the game. I will also try the new iOS Manager and report.

It could be, Alonso was doing quite well in karting in those years.

 

By the way, how surprising and excellent to see GPM2 still receiving such attention by fans. :up:

Never understood why a game developer can't just buy the rights to this game and give all the drivers fake names as not to upset FOM and sell it on steam

It's very good :) Certainly the best of its kind on the AppStore. I would recommend it.

It is a lot of fun and the presentation is excellent.  Well worth the asking price.

I remember the guys over at GPracegames had a interview with a certain Mr.Grabowski back when they where GPM2World, about helping out for a GPM3, but there was more than one hurdle. Wanting to, was not one of them.
