Was wondering if there will be another 10 yearly online World Cup for GPL, or if there are plans for it!? If not, might be an idea for different league admins and mods to organize/create such an online event. Holding qualifiers if there's a lot of interest etc.

How neat would it be to hold an original 67 series at some original tracks @ 36fps. Preferably with some aliens like Woodward and Hirvonen attending, showing us how it's really done. There are also still enough fast guys around among the online leagues to have a competitive field, even when there aren't that many aliens around.

Any thoughts?

10 years ago, 11 as we ran it at the 40th Anniversary of the 67 season we ran full races on the days the race where run originally. That said I'd be willing to help with organizing.

We already missed Kyalami date, but it was the same with 2010 WC as I remember.

GPL Weekly is able to host the official results once the regulations are clear. Would it be a nations vs nations world cup as last time? I'm afraid Hungary can't provide 3+1 drivers anymore... :(

I'd say primary individual driver, we can do a nation ranking if it works out. But points can be tallied at the end.

Here are the F1 races during 1967. Points paying rounds in bold. Kyalami date is already gone, but there would be plenty of time before the ROC in March.

South African Grand Prix Kyalami 02/01/18 80
II Race of Champions Brands Hatch 12/03/18 2x10,1x40
I Spring Cup Oulton Park 15/04/18 2x10,1x30
XIX BRDC International Trophy Silverstone 29/04/18 52
Monaco Grand Prix Monaco 07/05/18 100
XVI Gran Premio di Siracusa Syracuse 21/05/18 56
Dutch Grand Prix Zandvoort 04/06/18 90
Belgian Grand Prix Spa-Francorchamps 18/06/18 28
French Grand Prix Le Mans Bugatti 02/07/18 80
British Grand Prix Silverstone 15/07/18 80
German Grand Prix Nürburgring 06/08/18 15
Canadian Grand Prix Mosport Park 27/0
8/18 90
Italian Grand Prix Monza 10/09/18 68
XIV International Gold Cup Oulton Park 16/09/18 45
United States Grand Prix Watkins Glen 01/10/18 106
Mexican Grand Prix Magdalena Mixhuca 22/10/18 65
XV Spanish Grand Prix Jarama 12/11/18 60

I am open to any format, as long it's original 67s @ original tracks. Back in the day we had these Nations Cups, that's a nice format as well. But I initially meant a drivers championship with the best around online. I like Jonny's suggestion.

7 races at 7 original tracks (36fps), using all 67 cars by choice. 1 hour races (half GP's).

Or we could do 2 series, with -50 ranked or better at Pro settings, and those below -50 at Int settings (with arguably 1 reset?). If there's a lot of interest holding qualifiers, and /or give some 2017 league champions a voucher.

I'm not the best of organizers. It would be great if some league and site admins got together in a group. Like Michi, Jani, JonnyO, Stefan and some of the other online league's admins/mods.

Thanks all for being so passionate about this suggestion! Ofcourse it's not my idea, but was thinking about this already last year...

I'm not at the level of representing Argentina if I can convince some guys to race (and I hope to), but would be great to have a new world cup!!

Cheers, Marcos.

Any patches allowed? Pitstop/Refuel? Weather for Mosport?

I envision to keep it as close as original, but with the modern graphics/sounds updates, and GEM. But no 60fps patch or other pitstop/weather patches. Just my opinion. To keep it as close how it was when released.

To me the server 1 suggestion by Jonny O appeals the most to me. 7 races at original tracks, all 7 cars have to be used. 45-60 minute races, historic pts counting.

GPLRACER already has a Master of Mods series in the summerbreak, for those interested to run all mods. First we need a little group of admins/mods who are willing to organize it.

Here is some off my incoherent rambling as a starting point how I'd run an season like this.

I do like the 7 chassis 7 tracks idea. Problem is we got 11 tracks and 7 chassis. So either we eliminate 4 tracks or we up the car count. I prefer the later, since we got bunch of mods to choose from and a good driver should be able to conduct a variety of cars in my opinion.
Next point is over how much time we want to spread this, full year, half,...
Final point regarding tracks, I highly suggest running the newer Spa over the Papy version.

Once we got the schedule, we need to look at how to run a single race and how and what to score.

"Worst case scenario" we have too many drivers to fit on a single server. Either we do the GPLRACER thing and make everyone submit times ahead of the race or hold a 15min Prequal session to sort them into somewhat levelized servers. Preferably splitting the field down the middle so 24 drivers 12 on each server. The other question is how does one combine results of two separate races (I have an idea about that but I need to run some numbers first).

We are going to need servers, one is necessary, two would be better. Also a time that works for most or we stagger the races.

As for the race itself:
Distance;majority seems to say half GP, I say half GP because personally I prefer them distance based rather than timed. So historic distance *1/2.
I'd say no shift-r or oAo D2 Shift-R regs, ie recover to pits under own power and reset only there.
Pitstop patch is fine by my rekon, it's only boon if there is no or limited Shift-R allowed.

Not sure about contingencies as for mass discos and other dancing plague like events. It's either rerun or half points maybe both depending on distance covered pre event.

How to score, the classic 9-6-4-3-2-1 +1 for fastest lap sounds good to me,
Individual driver championship  is the best option imo. Nation Cup can be secondary though I fear there will be some disparity in numbers so I'd advise against it. Also I'd like this to be open to all not just the top drivers. The best. driver float to the top naturally anyway.

we have Mosport Rain .



I do not agree to a system 9 6 4 3 2 1 if you have 35 registered most will finish with 0 and therefore they will not register

So do prequalification (best lap on 3 tracks?) And distribution on several servers
divisions 1, 2 ... etc. mod 67
or div 1 mod 67, div 2 mod F2 ...(or mod 65)
