    V. Tracks
    The tracks are listed in the order they appear in the Grand Prix mode. I 
    am not including car settings since that is really up to the driver 
    preference. Experiment with different settings to see what you find best. 
    Tyre choice is really up to the player. Extra pit stop with soft tyres 
    but better handling. Also the pit stops seem to last the same weather 
    you change tyres or not or put in 2 laps worth of gas or 20 laps of gas.
    Fairly easy track with no bumps. Lots of good places to pass.
    Medium difficultly course with some downhill running. Fast in some places 
    while somewhat slow in others.
    The turns in this course are little bit harder. Be careful not to 
    accerlerate to early in the turns. 
    -San Marino-
    Track gets a little narrow in certain places. Again don't accerlerate to
    early in the turns as that will send into the walls.
    The hardest track on the circut. Almost impossible to run side by side.
    Be very careful not to hit the wall while passing. Also be careful on 
    the U-turn that is near the middle of the course, that is a very slow
    turn. Be careful on the pit exit as it is very narrow.
    This course has some sudden right angle turns, but they are not too 
    difficult.Be careful with the U-turn as you tend to ram into the wall
    Be careful not to take to much speed on the two mini turns next to the 
    pit entrance because you may end up hitting the wall on the last turn.
    One of the fastest tracks on the circut, be sure not to overshoot the 
    turns because of the sudden turns. Don't take the first turn too fast.
    On the first turn, take it slow and go to the right as it may seem that
    it is to the left.
    Really fast track with some sudden turns. Be careful not to overshoot 
    the turns.
    VI. Grand Prix Mode
    Go through the entire Formula 1 season in your quest to become World 
    Champion. Here you will go through 17 races and earn points for not only
    the Drivers Championship, but also for the Constructors Championship.
    (If the setting is on Champion, the 107% Rule is in effect. This means 
    when you qualify, your time has to be within 107% of the best time)
    VII. Challenge Mode
    This is one of the coolest things about this game. In the Challenge Mode,
    you have to get through events that happened in the 1997 F-1 season.
    There are three different divisions.(In Challenge Mode the game is set
    on the Professional setting)
    In these events, your goal is to move up in position in the amount of 
    time given.
    Your goal here is to keep your postion and move up if possible.
    In these events, your car goes through problems such as losing a tire or
    losing your brakes.

    VIII. 2 Player Mode
