Geoff Crammond’s early ’80s racing simulator was great to play – at least until you inevitably spun out on the first corner.

That didn’t stop me from playing it obsessively for weeks on end – determined to at least finish a race just once. It never happened, but I was happy to keep trying anyway as I hadn’t played a simulation of this type before.

Many years later he was to return to the genre with the amazingly excellent Formula One Grand Prix and…yep, I still spun out on the first corner every.
