Grand Prix 2: Mauricio Gugelmin (1988)

The first championship season, using a 1988 carset and shape but with the default [1994] tracks (ran at 100% distance), to prevent glitches and problems with CC cars (not uncommon on custom tracks). All subsequent championships will feature the default 16 tracks, Ace difficulty, and no driver aids. The only variations to follow will be in terms of graphical & audio effects, the length of practice & qualifying sessions, and the frame rate.

Up until this season, I had yet to win a race in which a driver aid wasn't enabled. I am using a $10 digital "PS2-style" joypad with the shouler buttons as gear shifters. The driver/car combo was chosen because it is low-powered, and would present an easier learning curve than entering the 1988 season with a high-powered turbo car. The lack of throttle help requires sensitive dabs on the throttle to get through corners. A fondness for the March 881 car was an extra reason; it was Adrian Newey's first design. The existence of a genuine Judd engine recording was another factor.
