2007 VGPHD Australian GP Pic

Currently Updating: Sorry for the delay in updates for the VGPHD Project. I have been working hard on the F1 2008 update for VGP3 and getting the update to work properly with help from Paolo and the team.


Welcome to the VGP HD Project home web site. This site is dedicated to the ongoing update being produced by Jason Frabotta for the game orginally from Paolo "The Alien" Cattani, Virtual Grand Prix 2. You will find all of the information you need to keep informed on the progress of the project as it moves closer to it's completion and eventual release. All the official F1 cars along with upgraded tracks with official banners and ads will be available with the full release update along with a few surprises.

This game was originally released for Mac, Windows and MorphOS. This update will work on all of the previously supported systems (You must have the corresponding OS executable). See below for more details.



Project Start Date: July 4, 2007
Objective: Full-fledged Official High Res and tweaked upgrade to Paolo Cattani's VGP2
Release Date: N/A
Permission: Yes
Performing Upgrade: Jason Frabotta
OS Compatibilty : Mac, Windows and MorphOS
Other Requirements : As of this website update, you need to have the original version of VGP2. I am hoping to make this easier in the near future for those who never actually bought the game. I will keep everyone updated very soon.

The upgrade will be texture by texture, file by file and track by track. The game engine has a lot of life left in it and this game will be a medium between the original VGP2 release and the new VGP3. Oh yeah, VGP3 absolutely rocks!
