Grand Prix 2: Ukyo Katayama (1992)

A new championship attempt at Grand Prix 2. The toughest challenge yet.

A simulation of the 1992 Formula 1 world championship for drivers and constructors, seen through the eyes of humble Japanese debutant Ukyo Katayama, in his Venturi Larrousse Lamborghini.

The carset features a modified 1992 car shape, with wider rear tyres. The 1993 regulations specified a reduction in rear tyre width. To reflect the (vast) superiority of the 1992 Williams Renault FW14B (which featured traction control, ABS, power steering, active suspension and a toluene fuel blend), it has a power rating of 830/820 horsepower (in qualifying/race trim). Mansell and Patrese have the maximum grip level (but Patrese's random grip range is higher). Senna also has maximum grip setting, but his McLaren-Honda is less powerful. The next tier of drivers (Berger, Schumacher, Alesi and Brundle) have 'near' maximum grip setting.

This is by far the most difficult carset I've raced with. I am once again using 'ace' mode with no option to use any driver aid, including throttle help. All tracks are default 1994, with different coloured skies to simulate changing weather (a crude effect, I know).

Racing as Ukyo Katayama in his first season of Formula 1. In real life, he scored no points, so there is very little pressure. The lap times are much quicker than the reality of 1992, and it seems as though the Williams cars will be impossible to catch, let alone keep up with. In this way, this season will hopefully prove to be more realistic than the last.
