    Tijn made a real scoreboard! Please post your times (with screenshots!) there

    I think lap times per circuit would be the most interesting thing to compare.

    There’s also the total amount of points in the championship, but as you can save/load as you please, getting the maximum number of points in a season is easier than you might think.

    I would suggest: Post lap time per circuit and difficulty level? Or we only accept highest difficulty πŸ˜‰

    Is that qualifying times? Or best lap in a race?

    Those are best lap times from practice πŸ™‚

    Ok, turns out keeping a scoreboard on a forum doesn’t really work.

    So I’ve made a thing. Lo and behold: the official DOS Game Club Grand Prix Circuit Scoreboard!

    It’s at: https://www.dosgameclub.com/grandprixcircuit.php

    I’ve posted my 2 best times for Brazil & Monaco (I have screenshots as proof). I’ll post more times as I get them. I hope you guys will too!

    Great job on the scoreboard Tijn! I didn’t expect that different cars would suit different races better. IIRC I always picked the McLaren as a kid πŸ˜›

    Haha, yeah the McLaren has the best straight-line speed, so it works well for high speed circuits such as Italy and Germany. But for more bendy circuits such as Monaco or Detroit, the Ferrari performs much better because it can maintain a higher speed around the corners.

    I’ve just set the best time for Canada in a Williams, but I don’t know if that time can’t be beaten in a McLaren. I’m not very impressed by the Williams so far πŸ˜›

    After a few tracks, yes definitely the McLaren is not suited for all circuits. It’s a bit obvious now!

    I’ve practiced a bit on Monaco, and while I’m still nowhere near the 1’00 mark I feel the Ferrari is much more suited to it than the others.

    Whoops right for my first serious time I used to wrong proof as attachment… Here’s the actual screencap for my latest Brazil time:

    I guess the other cars give me an additional concentration boost πŸ˜›

    I held #1 in Japan for a while, after I had done a quick lap in a Ferrari, but toasty managed to beat me in a McLaren.

    I recorded a video of my attempt to retake the #1 position πŸ˜€ Here it is:

    Congratulations Tijn! Having watched the video, I think you’ve earned it πŸ˜‰

    Feel free to try Monaco or Detroit too πŸ˜€

    Ok guys I’ve been inspired by our little chat with the grand champion, and now it’s time to up the antes. I just secured:

    * 1st place on Detroit (Ferrari is definitely the better car), Germany and Britain
    * 2nd place on Italy and Japan

    I hope you can handle dual employment as F1 racers and city mayors πŸ˜‰

    Haha, nice!

    I felt inspired by Andries as well, that’s when I decided to try Britain again in the Ferrari and managed a #1 time. But you’ve already broken it, so it’s back to the cockpit for me πŸ˜€

    It was fun chatting with you guys about my favourite DOS game! And now I will try and join you in playing a different DOS game each month. But I would also like to keep inspiring you to keep playing GPC and get better at it!

    So I will react on some earlier messages and post a rough guide that I have written today.

    I uploaded a Monza record to the scoreboard! Sadly I didn’t have my old copy of the game and don’t have my (and my sister’s and friends’) old times anymore.

    They probably weren’t too impressive. πŸ™‚
