About Grand Prix Net
History: When I couldn't find a good web site for Grand Prix owners back in mid-1997, I began this site. It used to be a simple list of links to articles and reviews on the Grand Prix. As time passed, and the Grand Prix mailing list (that I also started back in January of 1997) grew, I decided to expand into what you see here today. This is the most comprehensive collection of Grand Prix information that you can find either on the web or in print.
The sections on this site are accessible from the navigation area at the left at all times if you visit the main site page first. You can also use the site map to help navigate through all the information.
