I do not use GEM or any Mods.

I want to create a separate install dedicated to driving the "F2 Advanced Trainers" cars.

My question is :

Is it mandatory that the folder containing all the GPL files be named "GPL". or can the folder be renamed, i.e. "GPL-F2" ?

If it can be renamed, I would setup the installs as follows:
C\Sierra\GPL     for F1 cars
C\Sierra\GPL-F2   for F2 cars

If it cannot be renamed, I would setup the installs as follows:
C\Sierra\GPL  for F1 cars
C\Sierra-F2\GPL  for F2 cars

Can the "GPL" folder be renamed ?

Yes, it can be done. You can copy your gpl folder and past it with any name you choose.

I have folders called \ProgramFiles\GPL65, \ProgramFiles\GPL66, \ProgramFiles\GPLGT, \ProgramFiles\GPLCA66 etc.

I did however use GEM to set up the mods themselves but one they were set up I just click on the appropriate exe file to launch the patched GPL... actually I made shortcuts on the desktop.

You can point GEM to multiple folders by clicking the "Installs" button in the top left hand corner if I remember correctly.
