GT Racer apps take you back to the "Golden Age of Auto Racing"

Oh, the benefits of technology. We can’t live with it and we can’t live without it. In the latest example of how our items like the iPad and the iPhone are shaping the way we find entertainment these days, we got news that John Galt Films Inc, the leading international producer of high octane vintage racing films, has released ten GT Racer applications for the iPad , iPhone and iPod Touch. GT Racer is a documentary-style film that dives into the world of racing like no other film app we’ve seen in the past. The app is based on the GT Racer HDTV series that was aired worldwide on a number of channels and is now being transferred to the world of Apple apps.

Directed and produced by Alexander Davidis, the whole scene of GT Racer transforms your world and takes you back to the Golden Era of auto racing, one where you can take a look at the most exclusive series of international racing, featuring the 1950s and 60s Aston Martins , Ferraris , Maseratis , Porsches , Mustangs , Cobras , and so many other race cars as they compete in the some of the world’s most famous race tracks, including the Nurburgring , the Spa Francorchamps , Laguna Seca , and Carrera Panamericana.

More than the cars and the tracks themselves, GT Racer gives you the opportunity to feel the incredible atmosphere of the time, a time where high-octane racing wasn’t all about technological innovation as it was pure, unadulterated racing.

The GT Racer titles are developed by Smarphone specialists, Netframes, and include the following titles: Shaken & Stirred - Spa (Belgium); On Porto’s Street Circuit (Portugal); Big Speeds at Silverstone (England); The Nürburgring Factor (Germany); Legends of Lime Rock (Connecticut, USA); Ferraris at Laguna Seca (California, USA);
The Spa Six Hours (Belgium); Nordschleife: The 500 km Marathon (Germany); Fast Curves at Magny Cours (France); La Carrera Panamericana (Mexico).

Each of the episodes are now available at Apple’s iTunes store for $22.99 each.

I think I’m going to like this game, so I would like to try it now on my iPhone and iPad. The games offer a lot of cool tracks as well as the cars.

I would love to check this out on ipad or iphone. I really loved watching race flicks. Hey, do we need to download the app for us to be able to save the file? I was thinking that I would like to show it to my friends or share it on my Facebook wall. Just asking. Am not an internet-tech savvy person.

Well, this game sound so interesting though I have the same idea that the speed doesn’t matter here though I find the cars line up so cool!

@ marlonslay dude, this one is not a game. It’s a collection of videos about vintage cars. Try watching and you’ll enjoy it.

I don’t know what to think about this game. I bet this would be the counterpart of the GT5 where the everybody wants a need for speed. I think the game’s aimed would be who’s the last car that would finish the whole course!

One thing that I really loved about this one is the whole section about the competition between the Mustang and the Ferraris. That one is certainly worth watching over again.

It’s enough that we admire these iconic cars and be passionate about their design and vintage specs. However, driving this car in the race track is another scenario. I’m afraid that I wouldn’t feel the need for speed action when driving in one of these cars.

hmm. I wonder who will get interested in driving a vintage car? As far as I know, people want to an awesome speed and blast off in the race track so why the hell I should drive a car that can’t even torque?

Nice, I have been looking for old school racing videos for a while now. Good thing that these came out, I would definitely grab all the episodes and watch them this weekend.
