If it's unfinished and they're not working on it, there may well be someone else who is able to take the project over.

Hi,

GPL 66 is available and very gd it is too -http://1966gpl.speedgeezers.net/index.php?p=downloads

There is also a very nice Lancia Stratos mod that is the closest to a Sportscar mod so far get it here - http://www.virtualr.net/lancia-strat...-gpl-released/ make sure you read the install info.

You will need GEM to manage/load both mods.

Chrs, Pat

I finally got round to reinstalling GPL on my machine the other day. My CD is my original one from 10 years ago so no all-in-one patches included!

Anyhoo, I started googling to try and find the GPLEA cars again when I stumbled across something which has turned out to be a god send! I stumbled across a group call the Grand Prix Legends Preservation Society who have created a brilliant installer. You just put your original CD in the drive, run the installer and it installs GPL from your disc and then applies all the patches/updated cars for you. Genius!

Knowing me though, everyone on here has probably known about it for years...

I actually downloaded the GPL 2004 demo, which has all the (back then) latest patches for graphics and sounds and things like that, I just added onto that.

OK, so it saddened me that the first GPL thread here is now 5 pages down and the last post was 17 months or so ago.....

I've been running GPL again and boy am I rusty! I'm struggling to get within a couple of seconds of the times I did 7-8 years ago but I did upload one improved time to GPL Rank today!

So am I the only lost soul here who STILL thinks that GPL is, was and probably always will be the best racing sim?

I pop it on every now and then! Great fun. Still don't have a proper wheel, but I use my iPod to steer the car (very handy app for the PC), which is much better than using a keyboard.

I'm still using my beloved Momo Force - and it's still as good as it always was - now about 8-9 years old!

PS I can't believe that one of these sold on Ebay last week for 4.99!!!! In full working order! Makes me feel rather sad and old! I'd have bought it as a spare for that.

Clearly 6-7 years without driving GPL more than once or twice a year has taken it's toll. I've driven about 170 laps of Lime Rock over the last few days trying to get negative in the Lotus. Looks so easy in the replays. I'm about 0.07 short now......

Now that's a term I haven't heard for a long time!

And I did it tonight!

Really enjoying driving GPL again. Still as good as it ever was. And for me, it beats the crap out of rFactor, GTR etc.

I now need to go green at two ChallengeRank tracks and 3 HistoricRank tracks (although I'm negative overall on both of those ranks) and then I spend a month at the Nurburging.........

I've been inspired to stop being lazy and actually fire up GPL tonight, my G25 has been mounted to my desk for as long as I've had it but it rarely gets used these days.

The last time I had a look at GPL was when the sports car mod came out and I wanted to check out the Targa Florio, before that, I was trying to go negative on all the tracks starting with the more challenging cars. I recall spending ages trying to go negative in the Honda at Zandvoort. The elation when I did it was amazing (love that feeling!) then I moved on to the Cooper but somehow I stopped playing, I can't really remember why.

Then you must start again - then you'll remember why GPL was (and still is) so good.

I never forgot how enjoyable it was to play! I've been at it for a couple of days now, back in the Cooper and getting my times down at Zandvoort (what a stable chassis that car is - probably why it is also so darn slow!), I'm still trying to find my 'middle of the pack' pace I used to have because I'm way of the pace now!

I'll tell you, for me, rFactor is a bore compared with GPL. GPL is a real test of your ability to drive 'virtually'. And cg7aa, you could pick up a classic red Momo Force like my old beauty for a fiver on Ebay - chunder is at least right about the wheel - absolutely essential!
