GTR – FIA GT Racing Game is a sports car racing simulator developed by SimBin Studios (later Sector3 Studios) for the x86 PC.

Modifications and add-ons[edit]

Simbin has also released an "add-on pack" called "Kings of Ovals" which contains a set of new oval-style tracks.[2]

Reception[edit]

GameSpot said, "Despite its blemishes, GTR is the breath of fresh air this genre so badly needed." They awarded the game a score of 8.8 (Great).[3] IGN.com also praised the game, stating, "Big claims come close to reality.". IGN.com gave a score of 8.5 (Great).[4]

GTR won PC Gamer US's "Best Racing Game 2005" award. The magazine's Andy Mahood wrote, "With its licensed field of exotic sports and GT machines, exquisitely rendered European circuits, and outstanding vehicle physics, GTR advanced the technology of racing simulations to hitherto unseen levels."[5] It was also a runner-up for Computer Games Magazine's list of the top 10 computer games of 2005.[6]
