Start the game by creating your dream racing team! Input your team and manager name, and choose your team’s country of origin. Select from a range of pre-designed logos to be the emblem of your team! You are not given the option to customize or design your own logos though.
United GP can be a tad bit complicated and thus, there’s a nice tutorial to guide you through the many features in the game. However, after the tutorial, you may need to take some time to get used to how the game works, especially if you aim to be a champion!
The best way to learn the game is to play it. Thus, go ahead and boot up your first race! The game attempts to be as realistic as possible in terms of the process flow of racing. You’ll begin by racing in the qualifying session to determine your starting position. If you didn’t do well in the round, you can purchase to run another lap using real money currency.
Then the race proper will commence! The race is mainly text-based with the layout of the track showing the positions of all the racers, including your team’s racer, which is highlighted blue. The leading car is highlighted in yellow though. There’s also a live ticker that shows you what is going on on the track... a lot like the commentary that you usually can listen to when you watch an ongoing race. There are plenty more stats and numbers that you can view as you watch your car speed through the tracks, such as the total time at the pit stop, the car and driver condition as well as weather and any changes to the tracks.
While racing in United GP, you can change your driver tactics from neutral to either aggressive, which will wear out your car faster, but your driver will earn bonuses in aggressive driving, such as overtaking other racers; or defensive that is suitable to use if you’re in the front of the pack and wanted to increase the chance to block other cars from overtaking your car. If your driver’s lagging behind, you can also get your driver to perform actions to improve his position. For instance, on slipstream areas on the track, you may want to use the “full speed” action to ask your driver to go at full throttle, while for corners, you may want to execute “corner slamming”. Your driver can only perform 5 actions per race, so be sure to choose the right action to use!
Not to mention, you’ll need to adjust your strategy depending on the conditions presented as well. Not everything will turn out the way you expect it to be! Thus, thankfully, in United GP, you can, for example, easily change your pit stop strategy. Pit stops as you may know are vital in any race. You need to be fast and accurate, but it’s tough to achieve both. Increasing speed will decrease accuracy and vice versa. So, you’ll need a balance between those two factors in order have a good pit stop time.
After racing, you’ll need to give your race car a once over to see if any car parts have worn out. Go to the garage to check their condition and replace them if necessary. The conditions of the parts are indicated by a health-like bar. Once a part drops from green to yellow, you’ll see a significant and very noticeable drop in performance. However, in order to replace your car parts, you’ll need to ensure that you have the parts you need to start off with! You’ll need to produce new the components yourself at the production tab. Components cost money and at the beginning, you can only queue up 1 component in the production line. You can queue up more by researching later on! All in all, be sure to check your car regularly and replace worn parts or your car will not be able to perform at 100%!
Research in United GP is of utmost importance! This is where you can unlock special driver actions and many strategical bonuses that will give your driver the edge he needs! You can also unlock higher tiered components to replace the old ones. How? By investing research points into the features you want, of course! Each research will require a certain amount of points and you’ll need to fulfill that requirement before you can earn the bonuses and new features that the research unlocks. You are given a total of 12 research points and these points will regenerate at the rate of 1 point per hour. Can’t wait? You can always speed things up using real money!
In-game money can be hard to come by if you’re not as good at getting into the top 10, let alone the top 3. Thus, besides racing, you can collect a fixed income from your sponsors as well as some extra cash from quests that you’ve completed. You can get a small bit of bonus cash if you level up as well, along with the plethora of new features, race car, and components.
The car customization in United GP is pretty impressive too! There are plenty of colors for you to choose from and all of them can be unlocked over time as you level up. The designs available look fantastic and you can also customize the color/s of the designs you’ve placed on your car. Although colors for designs are mostly unlocked, there is still a few that are locked up unless you’ve hit a specific level. You can also name your car and buy new ones if you have the money to spare!
Let’s not forget about the achievements that you can earn as well! Collect all the trophies in the game and see them being displayed at your showroom, where your race car resides in! As you progress, you will also unlock other features, like recruiting more drivers to expand your team.

The graphics in United GP look very amazing for a browser-based and text-based game. They 3D rendered the race car which is pretty cool! This makes it easier for you to view the final outcome of your car customization too! However, the frame is a bit too big. It doesn’t fit the browser and unless you are playing at full screen, you’ll be doing a lot of scrolling around. The game does not provide any music, voice overs or sound effects.
