Here's my video on secrets and easter eggs in Grand Prix Legends. Please let it know if there are some secrets that I missed, I would like to make another video.

https://www.youtube....h?v=r2v1cWeYYqY

There are also some images I found while browsing trough the DAT files that I couldn't find on the tracks themselves:
1. Isle of Man - Hidden message about the 'spanish inquisition' or something like that.
2. Sodegaura Forest Raceway - Cavemen (One says "what are you looking for?")
3. Clermont-Ferrand - Red Cross widgy wodgy, it doesn't show up in my game.
4. Nürburging - Smeagol / Gollum and some images from a rockband (?).
5. Laguna Seca 1967 - Emma Peel

Thanks Millennium, that is a very well made video. I hadn't found all the ones at Clermont, now I know where to look.

Thanks - great video!

I'm not sure if this counts, but two things that I noticed which aren't really Easter Eggs, but but maybe bugs.

1) At the original Monza, if you squeeze an AI car into the guard rail exiting the pits, it might go supersonic.
2) Anywhere, I think, if you crash the car and pause it while the car is bouncing - particularly on its side - when you un-pause, the car will have tremendous energy and bounce a LOT.  This sequence of pause and un-pause , if timed right will cause the car to careen about tremendously.

This is best done in F10 view to enjoy the fireworks.  What you need to do is drive and crash in a way that the car loses two wheels on the same side.  Then as lt's about to land on its non-wheeled side hit F2 (instant replay) > Esc (goes back to paused action) > Pause to restart the action > F2 just as it's about to land on the non-wheels side again > Esc > Pause and repeat as long as you can get the car jumping

Looks like on of the Rally Stages, because I cannot say for sure.

Boomtown Park, maybe?

That's a cool crash video and shows a bug in the GPL physics.   Once the car is off the ground there is nothing to slow down its rotation rate in any axis because tire contact with the ground is what provides the force to do so.

Gravity always works so eventually the car will tend toward the ground, but as the video shows, rotation rate and movement speed may be grossly off by then.

I once had a replay of an AI car that went airborne and landed perfectly on its nose like a lawn dart with all four tires off the ground.  The car spun like a top indefinitely.
