Gfred

Gfred is a point to point race with checkpoints scattered all around the map, and became much bigger than I ever imagined. Initially made as a random experiment, it evolved to contain so many different facets over the years. Its randomness is still entertaining.

Gfred Rules

When it was originally created Gfred pretty much only had one rule - don’t kill anyone else in the race. Over the years more rules have been added, with the first banning the use of motorcycles and more recent rules aiming to curb the use of glitches.

Now there are two rulesets, Open and Traditional. Open rules have the intention of allowing freedom and the ability to think creatively to complete the course quickest, especially for speedrunners. Traditional rules aim to preserve the original intent of the race and level the playing field, to have participants rely on their driving skills more than anything else.

All live stream Gfred races and stream records, unless mentioned otherwise, will be ran under the Traditional ruleset. There are also solo world records for both rulesets, all listed on the Historical Stats sheet linked at the bottom of this page.

  2. Must complete the course without help from any other player.

  5. If you die on the freeway you may use your cycle to get back there.

  6. For PC records the game must be locked to 60fps.
