Update: The track editor is now available here.

Update 2: Added Autodromo Nazionale di Monza circuit

Update 3: Added last two tracks (Hockenheim and Spa Francorchamps) plus championship mode. The BBS version now plays identically to the itch.io multi-cart version.

Step back in time to an era when folk were real folk and racecar steering wheels were real steering wheels.
Mot's Grand Prix is a pseudo 3D Formula 1 racer inspired by Grand Prix Circuit, Continental Circus and a bunch of other 80s/90s racers I've forgotten :).

Strap into your single seater and blast around 6 classic race courses:

Or enter the championship and try to be top of the points table at the end of the season.

The game has 4 difficulty levels plus a practice mode to learn the courses without the pressure of racing.

You can also enable mouse control in the pause menu. It has 3 settings:

"Steering" mode can be quite playable if you use a large window size or full-screen mode. Use the keyboard keys to accelerate/brake as usual.
"Full" mode is not really playable unless you're some kind of robot, but can be useful for other input devices if they can be configured to output mouse movements (e.g. a Steam controller).

This is a game where you have to slow down for the corners!
Use the colour of the racing line to judge your speed.

If you're really having trouble, you can switch on "Auto Brake" in the pause menu. Auto-brake automatically slows you down for corners, but not to avoid crashing into other cars.

Don't be timid about muscling through traffic
There is no damage model. Your car is indestructible. Be fearless! :-)

Hope you enjoy this game.
