Now available for all Amiga owners -- FGP version 2.02a

At the start of this Formula One season Autosport magazine started running a Fantasy Grand Prix competition. FGP2 is a program which allows you to avoid at the tedious working out how many places your driver gained on his grid position and just how many points did Rubens Barrichello score by coming third. FGP2 has a simple command line and takes most of its input in the form of human-readable ascii files which can be created on any text editor. FGP2 comes with all the current driver/team data files required and can handle up to 50 different teams. Example files are also included for the files you have to create yourself.

As of the German Grand Prix, Autosport introduced Fantasy Grand Prix II. This involved a small change to the scoring for chassis and engines. Release 2.02a of FGP uses these updated rules and the new drivers/teams as detailed in recent issues of Autosport.

FGP2 is available by anonymous ftp from any Aminet site e.g. ftp.luth.se (130.240.16.3) in directory /pub/aminet/game/misc
