Grand Prix Racing Online is a motor sport management game, where you get to control and influence a racing team of your own. Sign drivers, technical directors, and staff. Negotiate with sponsors, and other managers to form teams. Set up your car for qualifying and the race, and set your strategy in order to become the best manager and win the Elite group title.
When you are satisfied with your car preparation for the next race, you can proceed to the track. At the top of the screen is a run down of all the laps you have completed, with the settings you used, the lap time, and the amount of time the driver lost due to errors.
Every driver has a special attribute called driver energy. It defines the condition of the driver and is directly related to how hard the driver can afford to push the car in the next race. The higher risks you take in the race, the faster the driver energy will drop during the race. If your driver energy drops to 0%, your driver will complete the remaining laps of the race with no risks at a slower pace. Depending on their skills, some drivers may be better at preserving their energy during a race. On the other hand some tracks may be more demanding than others for the drivers. It is important to note that very few drivers can drive a whole race with maximum risks! In between races, your driver will slowly recover energy. It is very important for you to estimate how fast his energy will recover between races and what risks he will be capable of taking in the next race without running out of energy. The energy level will not affect the driver pace in practice, qualifying and testing, however your driver will lose some energy during his qualifying laps.
This is where you confirm your car setup and strategy for the race. You can take your setup from either Qualify 1 or Qualify 2 or you can put a new one in. You must also specify the amount of fuel you wish to leave each pit stop with and the tyres you put on the car in the pits. You also need to decide how hard your driver is going to try to overtake, defend his position and set fast laps as well as how hard he pushes when there is a problem and how aggressive he will be at the start of the race.
Not every car consumes fuel at the same rate, and not every driver uses the same amount of fuel, it depends on their driving style, you need to find out how much fuel your car and driver uses to get the best strategy available, the more fuel you have on board the slower your car will be.
Before every race you have the opportunity to sign a new driver or Technical Director. Drivers and Technical Directors take their decisions between 19:00 and 21:00 CET on Mondays and Thursdays. It will cost you $500,000 to make a public offer to a driver, and anyone can make an offer to any staff member as long as the overall is not too high for the group they are in. Be careful because once you make the offer you will pay the $500,000 and it will not be refunded if you remove the offer. Once the deadline for making offers closes the staff will look at all the offers, and decide based on a number of factors (which again are up to you to discover) which offer is the best. If you are successful in signing a driver or technical director, you will pay the current driver or technical director a compensation equal to half their salary, for however many races are left on their current contract.
You can make up to 4 offers before each staff decision but keep in mind every offer costs at least $500.000 (depending on the type and timing of the offer) and to change an offer you will need to remove the old one and make a new one costing you additional money. It doesn't matter to what staff the offers are directed, you could make 3 offers to drivers and one to a technical director, or 2 offers to drivers and 2 to technical directors. The maximum bonuses that you can offer to drivers and technical directors depend on your current money balance. If your balance is negative you will not be able to offer any bonuses at all.
When making an offer the signing fee may not exceed 300% of the salary in your offer. If you are successful in your offers with for example 2 drivers, you will get the driver with the offer with higher priority and the other one will be canceled automatically.
The drivers and technical directors will take a decision on Monday and Thursday (1 day before every race) between 19:00 and 21:00 CET and no offers can be made during that time. For more details on when the next staff decision will happen please check "Your offers" page.
While driving test laps, you get knowledge about the car on three areas: power, handling and acceleration. This knowledge is shown in test points. The number of test points you gain depends on the focus of testing, the number of laps done, your driver, your technical director and staff. What follows is a fully automatic process which turns the test points into car character points. In more detail it works like this. You test and get test points. Next, you race and after the race the knowledge is (automatically) converted to new ideas (R&D points). This conversion depends on your technical director, staff and facilities. You do not have to have a TD or facilities to be able to do Research & Development. After each race, your new ideas (R&D points) are turned into production (engineering points). The success of this (automatic) conversion depends again on your technical director, staff and facilities. Again, you do not have to have a technical director or facilities to be able to do engineering. After each race, the engineering points are (automatically) converted into new part details ready to be fitted on the car (car character points). The success of this conversion depends on how many additional car character points through testing you already had per car character. The more points you already have, the harder it will be to gain new points.
Every race, you will pay a salary to your driver, technical director and staff as well as maintenance costs for your facilities, in addition to any costs you paid from updating your car. Details of payments can be found in the race analysis page and the economy history page.
For managers in the Rookie groups money balance, car parts, staff and facilities, sponsors negotiations, car character points etc. will be reset at the start of every season. The only thing that rookie managers get to keep between the seasons is the driver if his overall does not exceed 85.
If you are in Amateur, Pro, Master or Elite and want to have your account reset you can use the "Account Reset" option in the "Account settings" page before the end of Race 15 of the ongoing season. You will be moved to one of the Rookie groups and your account will get reset when the new season starts. You will also lose your current driver (if you have one) irrespective of his overall.

NVIDIA Reflex SDK: A new set of APIs for game developers to reduce and measure rendering latency. By integrating directly with the game, Reflex Low Latency Mode aligns game engine work to complete just-in-time for rendering, eliminating the GPU render queue and reducing CPU back pressure in GPU intensive scenes. This delivers latency reductions above and beyond existing driver-only techniques, such as NVIDIA Ultra Low Latency Mode.
With the launch of NVIDIA Reflex, we set out to optimize every aspect of the rendering pipeline for latency using a combination of SDKs and driver optimizations. Some of these techniques can result in large latency savings, while others will have more modest benefits, depending on the situation. Regardless, NVIDIA Reflex is our commitment to delivering gamers and developers tools to optimize for system latency.
In the above image, we can see that the queue is filled with frames. The CPU is processing frames faster than the GPU can render them causing this backup, resulting in an increase of render latency. The Reflex SDK shares some similarities with the Ultra Low Latency Mode in the driver; however, by integrating directly into the game, we are able to control the amount of back-pressure the CPU receives from the render queue and other later stages of the pipeline. While the Ultra Low Latency mode can often reduce the render queue, it can not remove the increased back-pressure on the game and CPU side. Thus, the latency benefits from the Reflex SDK are generally much better than the Ultra Low Latency mode in the driver. 2b1af7f3a8
