Default F1 Challenge 99-02 performance?

Hi. I'm getting quite cr*ppy fps in this game (with RH2004 mod installed), but only in races or race trainings, even with all the AI cars in boxes (during starts around 30-35 fps, during race ~45-60 even if there are no cars in my field of vision. With rain, it can be as low as ~20 fps at some points). This with all graphic options maxed and 1024x768x16 (x32 is even worse). But in "Test Day" all is smooth as butter (>100 fps)...

Of course "Test Day" has not any cars to simulate except mine, so... is this game that CPU dependant? Hell, it's 2 years old. How did it run with the processors of the time then? Or is it a Catalyst issue?

My rig:

Asus A7N8X-X mobo, Athlon XP 3000+, 1GB RAM
Sapphire X800 XT (with Cats 4.11)
Audigy 2 ZS

As an example, I can run Richard Burns Rally all maxed 1024x768x32 6xAA 16xAF not getting never less than 80-90 fps. The same with Flat Out. And graphically they are lightyears ahead of F1C.

Thanks and regards.

make sure u run the 3dconfig.exe and look to see that fsaa is off
also in your ati control panel under 3d put everything to balance.
I would rather run this game at higher rez then low rez with fsaa.

also do u have the hi res tires installed from RH
they have a big performace hit with alot of cars on track.
good luck. It really is one of the best racing games out there.
to bad the net code is so shoddy.
