Raceplan is a simulation of Formula One Motor Racing. You control your own F1 team as if you were a team boss, making decisions over designing and developing your cars, signing drivers, recruiting sponsors and instructing your drivers on tactics for testing, practice and race days.

In Raceplan we try to make the game work the same way as in real life, with realistic decisions and strategies. The choices you make are the same as you'd have to make in real life. Sometimes you'll have to make tough decisions, whether to hire better drivers, or develop your cars, or invest in sponsors to improve your future income.

Just as in real life, the best combination of car and drivers in Raceplan will not always win. You'll need to find a balance between going as quickly as possible (or as quickly as necessary) without breaking the car or crashing, and your judgement of the tactics and performances of your drivers and your competitors will be critical when you decide what risks you need to take during the race to win.
