GP-1 is a motorcycle racing game developed by Genki and published by Atlus for the SNES, which was released in 1993. It was followed by sequel, GP-1: Part II.
There is an Exhibition mode that can support two players and the Season mode. It is possible to choose between six bikes, and six different engineers whose skills match the player's racing style. While the bikes are slightly different from each other having different suspensions, engines and frames, there is no real difference between the engineers but still they will influence the improvement or worsening of the bike performance.
To be a successful racer, the player must invest in the best equipment and fine-tune his bike so that it runs at an optimal level. To do this, the player will have to race against 15 opponents on 13 tracks located in 12 countries in order to win some pocket money. The game features real tracks all over the world but, even though the display on the menu is correct for the tracks, while playing some turns are wrong or non-existent. During the championship, the player will receive money for getting the first positions on each race, which enable him to upgrade parts of his bike fine-tuning it for better performance. While learning each course, the player will have to find the perfect racing line if he wants to have a chance at winning. In Grand Prix racing there's a fine line between executing the ideal turn and making a mistake that will send the player flying off his bike and tumbling down the track.
