Sadly, the game performs very poorly when played on Mozilla Firefox.
Also the controls will malfunction at random times.
I also experienced a freezing browser. I couldn't figure out why...
The whole game was made in Flash, so no extra fancy stuff.
It has to be a problem within Firefox or its Flash plugin.

Playing this game on Firefox may cause frustration :(

Performance on Google CHROME however is just great.
You'll drive faster lap times on Chrome !

Tap the accelerator to brake or just lift it. The car slows down quick enough.
Don't use the reverse-keys to brake.

To an extent the game allows you to drive through tire barriers.
These mainly serve the purpose to make walls more visible on critical parts of the track.

It's 1987 again !
1000 hp are waiting to be unleashed.

Popping turbochargers and flame spitting exhausts.
Cars, wide & low, throwing sparks everywhere when underbodies kiss the bumpy tarmac.

This was the turbo era of grand prix racing.
There was never something like it again. Have fun in '87 ! :)
