Description
The Spark F1, F2 and F3 cars are a generic car of the specifications found in historic Grand Prix cars, and are similar in construction to the Tecno F2 and F3 cars of the late 1960′s which often led the way in those lower formulas. Tecno were very competitive, and in 1968 dominated the European F3 Championships. The team gave Clay Regazzoni his big break, helping him secure an F2 title in 1970.

The F1 car is completely fictional, and based off the F2 chassis which is in turn based off the Tecno F2 car. However, the livery is supposed to represent the “Yamura” team and fictional driver “Pete Aron” from the 1966 movie “Grand Prix”. In real life, the car was a McLaren M2B, driven by Bruce McLaren.

I'm getting a blue ball around these and the eve cars. Is it because they are not DX11 compatible?

1968 was the third year of the 3.0L Formula One era, and arguably the first year in which the top teams had their acts together with proper engines and sorted chassis. But there was plenty of turmoil; there was a horrible stretch during which something like eight drivers were killed at the rate of about one per month, beginning with Jim Clark; it was the very first year that sponsorship liveries were allowed by the FIA; it was also the year wings first appeared on F1 cars. These were each transformative developments in the future direction of F1 culture, as we see today when safety, sponsorship money, and aerodynamics are all top-tier priorities.

Fantastic embodiment of what F1 racing was like in 1967 & 1968 (the F1 variant - it is brutal - very GPL).
