Release id #21961 : Grand Prix Circuit

This is obviously a release by "SCG". It is an "A Touch of Class" release that has subsequently been improved and re-released by weetibix of "SCG".

Like discussed we should probably not add the intro credit as code.

Well, sometimes it's really hard to assign the correct info with only one possible field. So I assign this to SCG and remove the Pudwerx credits.

Use both groups, it seems to be imported by SCG.
Isn't the cracker mentioned?

I'm a bit dubious on the reason for adding both groups.
In this case I, after some thought, also think both groups should be added like Zyron says, but only because the cracker is not known.

The SCG intro says this is an NTSC fix and an import, so it's obvious that he did some work on it before he released it.
This may ofcourse have been in cooperation with "A Touch of Class", but it doesn't say anywhere.
If it had been possible to set the crack credit to a group I think the release should have been attributed to "SCG" and the crack credit to "A Touch of Class".

Personally I think that both groups (the cracking group & the importing group) should always be added to imported cracks.

I agree, but how about fixed versions (PAL fix in this case) of cracks?

Well, if there's an intro from the fixing-group linked to the release I'd say use both groups again :)

Ok. Fine with me. :)

Though technically the someone could have made an unapproved "bad fix" to a release, and kept the old intro. This release would now be listed as a release from the original crackers.
