Graham Hill 40 Years Ago

Today, 12:49 PM

Posted by twinpotter in Motorsport Chat
Today marks 40 years ago that we lost Graham Hill in that fateful plane accident.
We lost one of the best drivers to grace his era and one of the nicest guys who had great character in abundance and will be missed by all.
Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this time.May he be remembered today with happiness and fondness always.

Daytona Clipping Issue?

Yesterday, 06:33 PM

Posted by Manfred Cubenoggin in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
Hi there, sports fans!  It's not a big deal but I've noted an image bleed-through that lasts only for blink on the high banks of the Daytona oval as rendered by Smoggie way back in 2001.  Has there been a fix to this?  Is it even possible?  Location is entering T3.

Be nice to have a fix for this but it's hardly Earth shattering to cope with.

Project Cars Releases Classic Lotii And Rouen!

Yesterday, 03:50 AM

I could not believe my eyes when I saw that PCars had just made available an add-on pack (US$8.00) consisting of 4 classic Lotus cars and three classic circuits - including Rouen Les Essarts.
This circuit has always been a dear favourite of mine in GPL, right from the day I first bought the game.
In PCars it is excellent and oh, so familiar! :)
As well as Rouen there is the 1970s Hockenheim track (with chicanes) and also classic Silverstone.

The cars include the Lotus 25, the Lotus 38 - which SCREAMS out for an Indy circuit as it has two gears only and is therefore useless on anything other than an oval - the Lotus 40 disaster and a Lotus 49C.

Great stuff and being able to race the 25 and 49 at Rouen is just superb.

Albert Park 1957

25 Nov 2015

An alpha was made in 2002 but discontinued due to a lack of data...Well, I think this would be a great track to drive. And I can start you off with a huge aerial map I compiled from Melbourne's library archive. It was taken in 1946, but the roads are accurate and you can see the placement of all the trees and so on :)

There is footage of most of the track on YouTube, from the 1953, 1957 and 1958 races. I'm sure many more photos exist too.

Hosting (Timed Out)

26 Nov 2015

I can join races which are available in Vroc and Igor. When I host a race and my racing buddy wants to join from his home he gets ''timed out''. He can also join online races. We have also tried with him as host, same result.

So basically we can join but not host. Any ideas?
