Back in the early 2000s, I participated in a GPL team competition. Track makers produced a whole series of new venues specifically for these races. One guy asked for participants to send in pictures of family, etc, and he placed the images at key points around the track.
My kids were small then; I sent their pictures in, and the designer placed them outside one of the slow corners; they were clearly visible as you drove through the turn.
I can't recall the name of that track, or the competition name. Does anyone on this page remember this? I no longer have the ability to run GPL, so I can't find it that way. I'd love to find it on YouTube. Any help is appreciated!
I remember I drove the track with those pics, I just don't know which on was it. Can you help?

I am now concentrating on Crystal Palace and Castle Combe, two circuits that I know well in different ways. I saw Jochen Rindt win a Formula 2 race at the former and I raced at the latter.
The GPL creation of Combe is unusually accurate. The section between Folly and the exit of Quarry, one of the most demanding parts of any circuit in the world, is especially well modelled, just as I remember it (that is me exiting Quarry in my avatar). I have only two gripes:
- The contrast is not as sharp as on other circuits.
- The AI are hopelessly slow. I have got below 1m 8s but they are at least seven seconds off that, so if I did a race I’d probably lap them all twice. Is there a way to tweak AI permanently for one circuit or is it necessary to adjust AI Speed in GEM+ and then reset it afterwards?

When I start out with a new sim I like to read the manual cover to cover first, but there seems to be no rFactor 2 manual. Is there a manual, or something similar, which would cover everything you need to know about the interface and also give me, e.g. detailed information about setups?

I took a break from other sims and decided to re-install GPL, the easy install guide works fine and everything's good until I try to get in the car. I've got 3 monitors making up 1 desktop in Windows 10 set to 5760 x1080 (Radeon RX 580). In GPL however I get 3 identical displays in the menu which is fine, and if I select a single screen sized resolution I get 3 in-cars, but once I pick 5760x1080 (either within the game or GEM2) when jump in the car it crashes to desktop. Doesn't seem to matter which rasterizer I use.
