Project CARS’ smashing success around the globe has not only brought intense and realistic racing action into a million homes but also introduced gamers to one of the hottest new racing series around: Formula Gulf!

The WMD-powered title is the first racing simulation to feature the Middle Eastern’s most popular racing series as well as the Dubai Autodrome, one of the series’ calendar fixtures.

The Formula Gulf is one of my favourite cars to drive in game, and it makes for close & competitive racing in multi-player lobbies ...

They do run the gp circuit sometimes.

There's some stuff on YouTube, mostly on boards IIRC

They race on various layouts including the GP Circuit, there is lots of info on the FG1000 Website (http://fg1000.net/) its linked in the article on the front page. Pretty small grid though only 8 cars :eek:

I need to learn the track in Dubai so it looks like 10 lap races in the FG1000 will be the way I do it :)

I'd happily put something together for PS4 (Euro time zone) ;)

My attempts at replicating a FG1000 Race @ DA GP :) Just the first few laps mind...Right good fun it was!

i have tuned my gulf for almost every track in game lol spent hours doing this when i saw the hybrid in the list of cars i jumped on it and hardly driven any thing else the whole idea of a super bike engine in a f1 frame just tickles my fun button

Dubai is already in the game, if SMS includes Yas Marina then we'll have all the tracks from the real life series in the game ;)

I love the FG1000: doesn't go stupidly fast but feels and sounds like it does! My old eyes and brain can keep up with it and it's a very enjoyable drive on nearly any track, not just Dubai.

Did a 14 lap Quick Race weekend on Cadwell Park with 9 AI FG1000's(10 of us total). AI @ 90% Qualified 2nd.

Man what a perfect track for the FG1000. Anyway, spent the whole race following P1 when I noticed I had enough draft to pull beside him coming down the hill to the S/F line but he'd always beat me into T1 and mess up my line.

Anyway, won by the skin of my front wings Gelcoat. :D
(That's my own personal livery BTW)

I hope so. Formula rookie (Ford) and gulf are my favorite formula to play.
If not yas marina, at least one national circuit would not be bad

My friend selected the gulf online the other night, I thought it was going to be ridiculously hard to control, but it turned out to be one of my new favourites, we were bumper to bumper for almost the whole race, great car !

It shows neutral the whole time, no gear changes? Anyone else notice? It had manual gear lever before (I think it's supposed to be paddle shift anyway, not sure) food racing though!

Great stuff (fg1000.net)... gonna race this car @ Dubai this weekend.

Yas Marina would of course be another great addition (especially for the FA).

Inspired by the OP and having never actually taken a Formula Gulf for a test drive, despite being a proud early contributor to Project CARS back in 2011, nor had I driven on the Dubai Autodrome, I decided it was high time to reverse that situation and boy am I glad I did, what a blast!

I started on a random grid of 20 of these fantastic formula cars (more info on the car @ http://fg1000.net/the-formula-gulf-1000-car) and got placed mid field at spot 10. I had a great start and moved up a few places by the end of the pit straight, so was on for a good progressive attack if I could hold off the competitive edge of the chasers and pick off my adversaries one by one.

I hustled back and forth a few places; it was only a 5 lap race after all, but ended up just about grabbing 3rd place and getting a bottle of bubbly on the podium (well, a self served a beer at least) at the end.

These great little undiscovered vehicles (well by me at least) give wheel to wheel action and you really have to push to the limit and sometimes just beyond to keep them in check.

I'll definitely be pressing on with this series and hoping that more Middle Eastern tracks will be forth coming in Project CARS.
