I'm really curious in what the font could be of the Grand Prix Legends logo on the box art.
I know another logo I frequently use looks a lot like Impact with italics on, but I have never figured out what this one is ('Grand Prix' bit).
I tried a font finder program online but it doesn't come slightly close. Perhaps because it is in Italic as well.

Anyone an idea?

Probably it is custom artwork to avoid rights issues as fonts are generally protected by owners.
It might be similar but is likely not similar enough to bother someone too much.

Since the mention of GPL box cover logo, I just made a quick HD version using bezier curve in Inkscape, might be useful. (of course, please do not use the logo for any commercial purpose)

The archive includes one 1000 pixel png picture, and SVG vector scalable image (for editing).

I think we have a very close match, ladies and gentlemen :)
95% of it is identical to this font:

Serapine Italic!

Have to give you 95%.

Easy to see subtle differences tho between the two examples.
The small "r" for instance and the rounding on the "n."
Thickness of verticals and ratios are just enough to say there is a difference.
Sure you know its those kinds of distinctions that are foundations of lawsuits.

Good detective work.


One is free...I'd go with that was the one they started with, then changed it enough to make it unique.

Agree with John, better go with a free version if decide using it in public.
