"illegal"?

I feel if you have purchased a piece of software and it doesn't function as advertised, and the developer/distributor of that software is of no help, then whatever you do to get that software working properly is legal.

I didn't consider it "piracy" that I downloaded a hacked version of GTL.  Simbin had my money and I had a game that wouldn't run 90% of the time;  had I not been able to get GTL working I'd have considered them the pirates.

Indeed. It's illegal while you don't buy it. If you buy it and doesn't work, you have the right to search for a solution, specially when the companies just ignore you.

Like Stefan wrote, GTL runs fine under Win7-64 using the altbierbude. I have two versions of GTL, the original DVD with Starforce and the Computer Bild Spiele DVD without Starforce.
Have a look at the altbierbude for a fantastic running GTL with very much track and mods, with a autoupdater and servers and all drivers have the same game data.
