Grand Prix Legends (ISO image) 1.0
http://vetusware.com/download/Grand%20Prix%20Legends%20_ISO%20image_%201.0/?id=14508
Grand Prix Legends (ISO 9660 image). Contains all original content for the North American release. This is quite possibly the best racing sim available for Windows, period (yes, including all of the modern racers). This sim is very extensible/"moddable," and there is a very large, active support community. This runs beautifully, unmodified on old Windows 9x boxes (assuming they have decent 3D accelerators for the time). To run this on modern systems, you will absolutely NEED to go here: https://gplps.wordpress.com/gplps-gpl-installer/ and grab the latest installer. This includes installers which allow for installing in later versions of Windows (I can confirm it works in Windows 10), and also has modified rasterizer files to allow the sim to be able to talk to modern graphics cards. You will need a GPL CD for this installer, and this ISO image works great. The modern rasterizers are fantastic, and support just about any display resolution. I use this with a Matrix TripeHead2Go at 3840x1024 (this is NOT 4K--this is three older 1280x1024 displays chained together). For laptops/systems with Intel graphics, use ONLY the modified DirectX v7 rasterizer, unless you really like a very slow menu interface.

NASCAR Racing 2003 Season (ISO image) 1.2.0.1
http://vetusware.com/download/NASCAR%20Racing%202003%20Season%20_ISO%20image_%201.2.0.1/?id=14513
This is an ISO-9660 image of the most popular Papyrus sim ever released: NASCAR Racing 2003 Season. This is arguably the single BEST racing simulation available for Windows, period. Only 100,000 copies were sold before the product was pulled from the shelves and production ceased. As a result, obtaining and original NR2003 CD-ROM is extremely difficult, and the demand for this sim has driven the eBay price of a typical NR2003 CD above $150 for a used copy, and over $400 for a new, boxed copy. By contrast, I bought the sim new late 2003 when it was released, and I paid only $40. While I would highly encourage finding an original disc if you can, I have made my disc available here, if you want to try it. You will need to use the included patch, and if you want to play without the CD image, use the separate NR2003.exe (after you have applied the patch, of course). The CD key is included in the archive in "key_and_patches.rar." INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: 1) Mount the CD image using DAEMON tools, or Windows 10's built-in CD image handling stack; 2) Install the product using the supplied key, full installation/all options; 3) Apply the 1.0.0.0 to 1.2.0.1 patch; 4) Copy the included NR2003.exe to the base NR2003 directory, overwriting the existing file. Visit http://nr2k3.weebly.com/mods.html to see what the massive NR2003 modding community has been doing to keep this wonderful product alive. Splash'N'Go Graphics has done a wonderful job supplying updated seasons/cars for later NASCAR seasons. If you really want to know why this sim is #1, look no further than here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zYVLBfh5vI
