  DSC Motorsports Park circuit now available


The track was originally created for rFactor, and now reimagined for F1 Challenge. A track based in the late 70's to mid 80s, it is a fast flowing circuit with a number of sweeping bends and two banked curves to test the fastest cars and drivers.

Conversion help was kindly offered by Lee67, who can be found offering a number of high-quality track conversions for F1 Challenge HERE.

  F1-SEVEN - '77 DSC Motorsports F1 Team now available
The 1976 DSC Motorsports Team car has been released for F1 Challenge. This download require the F1-Seven 1975 and GFX 1976 mods to be installed first.



Presenting the DSC Motorsports team of 1977.


1. Driver and Owner Nicholas Cole was ever-present, leading the charge in the #60 DSC M02B-Cosworth. This car dealt with the flyaway races in the Americas at the beginning of the season. Eagle Star, an insurance company also based in Sutton, England, continue their partnership, whilst Castrol remain the team's title sponsor.

2. A high-downforce wing was introduced for Monaco, and was used at select races afterwards.

3. Introduced in time for the French grand Prix, a new nose and wing assembly helped lift performance on the faster tracks making up most of the latter season. It was with this car that Cole took a stunning 3rd in the Italian Grand Prix, a high point, but also the only points-score recorded all season for the #60.



Joining Cole were three other drivers, in the #62 M02B car.


1. Rupert Keegan competed in the first 4 races, on-loan from Hesketh Racing who skipped the races in the Americas in order to concentrate on the start of the European Season. Fast but ultimately fragile, Keegan retired in all 4 races.

2. 1976 DSC driver Bob Evans rejoined the team in Spain, and would continue to drive for the rest of the season. Whilst also suffering from reliability problems and recording 7 retirements, he also managed two 6th places, in Monaco and in Italy, capping off DSC's best race performance to date.

3. Taking the place of Bob Evans for the final race at Fuji was 1976 Japanese grand Prix standout Masahiro Hasemi. After impressing for Kojima before ultimately finishing 11th, Hasemi again proved a capable driver around the Fuji Speedway, finishing 8th.

  F1-SEVEN - '79 Chevron B41 car now available
The 1979 Chevron B41 car has been released for F1 Challenge. It require the F1 1979 mod to be installed first.



1979 Chevron B41

The only Chevron, designed by Derek Bennett, to compete in the F1 category. Though it never appeared in a championship F1 event, it did run a full season in the British Aurora AFX Championship in 1979 - driven primarily by Tiff Needell and David Leslie, and a solitary outing in 1980. Its best finish was 2nd on its first outing at Zolder. Sponsored by Durex, this car is the configuration seen at the non-championship 1979 Race of Champions, where it retired on lap 16.

  F1-SEVEN - '76 DSC Motorsports F1 Team now available
The 1976 DSC Motorsports Team car has been released for F1 Challenge. This download require the F1-Seven 1975 and GFX 1976 mods to be installed first.



1976 DSC M02A

The M02A was a completely new car for the 1976 Formula One Season with the team starting from scratch, aside from the ever-present Ford Cosworth DFV powering the car. A narrow chassis in contrast with it's predecessor, initial testing proved positive, although consistency and reliability in the early races was hard to come by.

However, at the French Grand Prix the team had started to get on top of the issues in the car, and 6th place was followed by a 5th at the British Grand Prix. With the car shining at the high-speed tracks and in changeable weather, two further 6th places in Austria and Japan represented DSC Motorsport's best season to date, leaving them 10th in the Constructors Championship with 8 points.




1976 DSC M01D

For the first time in the teams short existence, DSC Motorsports fielded a second car. After failing to qualify for the struggling Stanley-BRM team in Brazil, Ian Ashely was approached to drive a second car. Last year's M01D car was updated and prepared for Ashley to drive, and was modified further after the United States West Grand Prix, when a ban on the tall airboxes that had become commonplace was enforced.





Despite finishing an impressive 7th place at the South African Grand Prix, Ashley's results were blighted by retirements and the occasional error, and after the British Grand Prix Ashley was replaced by Bob Evans. The move was slated in the British motoring press, but having tested and raced for Lotus earlier in the season, Cole was looking to Evans to help develop the M02A in the future. Evans was on more than one occasion let down by the M01D chassis, but everything held together for Evans to take 6th place in the Dutch Grand Prix

  F1-SEVEN - '73 and '74 DSC Motorsports M01A & B 2.0 updates
I have updated the 1973 and 1974 car as part of the release of the 1975 car. Major changes are:

- New 'authentic' Team backgrounds were produced, to match the menu backgrounds of the other teams.

- GEN file edits and general improvements to make sure the cars appear without additional mods. Previously the cars were referencing files from other years (Such as needing BOTH 1973 and 1974 files), now they require only their respective year's mod installed (1973 for the 1973 car, 1974 for the 1974 car, etc.)

PLEASE REMOVE THE PREVIOUS 1973 AND 1974 CAR FOLDERS BEFORE INSTALLING THE 2.0 UPDATES!
This is to avoid any issues with regards to overwriting files, and to prevent mismatches.

You can grab the updated files from the Downloads Section.

  F1-SEVEN - '77 Marinho F1 Team now available
The obscure 1977 Marinho Formula One cars have been released for F1 Challenge. They require the 1977 mod to be installed first.




Whilst the car never became a reality, the team's roots are based in the 1974 BIP Lola 2-litre sportscar project, which wanted to move on to F1 in 1975. This never materialized when the BIP bank was nationalized following political unrest in Portugal in 1974, but in 1976 the project was still alive, with a planned debut at the 1977 Spanish Grand Prix.



The car was a sculpted, arrow-shaped Cosworth kit-car that looked far ahead of it's time, sporting a shovel nose and radiators well to the back of the car, in Brabham BT52 fashion. The car featured a number of unusual and unique features, including a V-damper setup for the suspension, the use of 8 smaller brake discs (4 onboard and 4 outboard). The team also boasted 'a cylinder head of revolutionary design, which increases the power of 480 HP to around 650-700 HP." How this was to be achieved was never revealed.



Two drivers were selected from the 1974 Team BIP Sports-car team, Mário "Nicha" Cabral (4 Grand Prix starts) and Carlos Santos (0 Grand Prix starts).
