Funny isn't it?

I came back to it after an absence of pretty much 7 years and thought I'll not be as quick as I used to be. I was no 'alien' even at my best, but reasonably proud of my -33 rank. I decided to try and go green on the HistoricRank and ChallengeRank circuits I was still out on. It took me a week to get Lime Rock and for the last 10 days or so I've been pounding around Imola. I hated Imola back in the days, only then managing a 1.35 (benchmark is approx 1.33.6). I found a reasonable set up (I have many installed) and got down to the high 33's with one 'fluke' lap at 1.33.7, but I kept making the same mistakes. The night before last, just before I went to bed, I installed my 1.27 Monza set up, changed the gearing, and in 5 laps went a hundredth under. Last night I did another dozen laps and got down to 1.33.11. Pribluda was telling me on best sectors I could have done a 32.8.

Off to Keimola now and I shall use the same set up with suitable Keimola gearing.

It is just great fun [boring, boring!] unsurpassed by anything else [/boring, boring!]. When you actually beat a benchmark, the satisfaction is tremendous. And the ability to analyse on GPLRA and upload to GLPRank is great fun too.

What is your Cooper time at Zandvoort and can you offer any hints as to how to extract more out of that car at this track?

Not much better than yours - 1.26.662- so only 0.186 under benchmark. That time would have been set in 03 or 04 and I doubt that I've driven Zandvoort since. Unfortunately I can't identify the setup I did that with either.

It would be interesting to hear if any of you GPL guys have tried the F1 1971 for Rfactor and what you think? I'm a big GPL fan but I'm enjoying the F1 1971 mod. The cars are still very skittish but you can feel some of the aero effects which means its a different kind of challenge.

The 70s F5000 mod has quite an 'accurate' feel too - I think its put together by the same team.

I've been a little off the ball with Rfactor recently and didn't realise there was a F1 '71 mod available. I'll have to try it!

I've tried both - and you'll know what I think, so I won't even bother to say it.....


I'm still driving round and round Bremgarten - for me, one of the toughest circuits to go negative on in GPL. I never managed it in my 'prime', but since going back I'm within 3/100ths. When I do it, I'm sure I'll do it by several tenths. I know from my best split times that it's well within my grasp, but doing the perfect lap is so hard. How the aliens managed 2.02 or even 2.01 laps is completely beyond me. (Bench mark is a low 2.07!).


It's slightly sad to see that of my old 'buddies' on GPL Rank, no-one has uploaded any times for about 6-7 years other than me.....

I suddenly had a thought last night and decided to have a look on this new-fangled YouTube thingamijig to see if there were any of the old GPL videos on there.

First hit was one of my favourites:

Push The Limits

There are a couple of sim racing 'celebrities' in the credits too.

I finally tamed Bremgarten. What initially seemed impossible became much easier in the end - 2.06.81, nearly half a second inside (I even beat Pirenzo's old best!) and Pribluda was telling me that a very low 6 was on the cards. Now I just need Solitude to be all-green in ChallengeRank.

I post this for my own interest really, as so few Tenthers now drive GPL....

I will get around to reinstalling it, honest guv!

I'm not done with GPL, but it's finding the time. I need to dig out all the updated graphics. Anyone know where they can be downloaded in one package?

I'm not sure about one package - you can certainly get the GPLEA stuff for the cars in one go.


I suggest you start here -

http://gplps.org/wb/pages/projects/gpl-installer.php

then go here -

http://gpllinks.org/

Go to - To Do's if You're New to GPL

So, just for fun, I installed GPL again using the all in one installer. I've had a couple of online races and I'm already down to within .8 of my best at Watkins Glen. Yes, it looks dated alongside the modern offerings, but with it set to a high res and all of the eye candy that the all in one installer provides, I'm loving it again and it still knocks the socks off of anything I've tried since. Such a challenge. I know there will be plenty of harrumphing from certain quarters, but does anyone else dip their toe in now and again?

I tried it a couple of years ago and it was awesome, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected. And then I tried Assetto Corsa....and enjoyed it even less. I guess Sim Racing just doesn't suit me as well now. But whilst I was experimenting to find out if it was still the hobby for me or not, GPL Was certainly still more satisfying than most games.

Assetto Corsa provided me with some very satisfying online races on RaceDepartment. But when the racing wasn't super close and fun, I didn't enjoy it. GPL was able to keep me entertained just hot lapping. Somehow it has the 'magic' that other, technically better, games miss.

So I may not play it anymore (does that count as harrumphing?), but it still stood up against modern games when I did try it. The only thing that got close to it was Assetto Corsa.

I think that's one specific thing that GPL has that other sims don't, it's an addictive challenge - even hot lapping because there's the challenge of going a few hundredths quicker......
