If you have pink or purple stripes on the tyres, download this zip. Copy the contents inside the main Grand Prix 3 folder and replace files when prompted. Right click, Save As... on the following link:

This fix correctly re-aligns the treads, which are actually in the wrong place in the BMP. Normally people recommend you just paint the purple bits black however that was not a good enough fix for me.

I'm aware GP3 is essentially a dead and buried game but it doesn't have to be. Not finding fixes to simple problems that have been around since the game came out has done my head in!

Eh not really, if you use period-correct hardware this problem doesn't exist. This is caused by newer hardware not applying the texture properly.

Though I suppose this is as close enough to a real fix for modern hardware.

More than alive. I have all modern racing titles but i re-installed GP3 and i'm having same fun i had back in late 90's, or early coz i used to play World Circuit since it came out.
By the way, where can i get 1998 default tracks updated?

THANKS!
