Unlike GPL, it doesn't appear possible to have different drivers and their cars at different races. I'm may be missing something here, but that means you can't build a historically correct grid for each race in a championship season.
Also tried the light version of Content Manager which is GEM+ on steroids. Very nice program indeed. However, you can't edit a championship season with the light version so I can't comment on how well it works for changing each AI driver's capability or if you can have different drivers in each race in a championship.
Have been watching the AI race a bit too and don't see anything major wrong with them although they seem to run off track a lot. I know we've all complained at times about how bad GPL's AI can be, but overall, I think GPL's AI is as good as AC's. That's pretty amazing for a 20 year old sim.

Of course, one of GPL's nice features is the ability to create championships with historically correct grids for each race. It appears that AC can create championships, but I'm unsure if it can make each race have the correct number of drivers.
Assuming it can, I believe you're saying that the full version of Content Manager can then adjust each AI driver's strength and aggression values.
I also wonder how AC's strength and aggression values work. GPL, of course, has hype, experience, alertness, .etc values for each AI driver. More values aren't necessarily better, but perhaps allows better fine tuning. Also, how does the race global strength and aggression values affect the individual AI driver's strength and aggression values?

Is there some experience of online races with this mod? What about hosting races for AC?

You're welcome Pete. I'm a die hard GPLer of course, but I'd heard so much about AC that I had to try it out for $20. It really is a nice sim.
If we could combine its graphics with GPL features, then we'd have the best of both worlds. Maybe Remco can figure out how to make AC handle a championship season?

Figured it out, you need Dream Pack 3 which includes the Lotus 25. The 33 borrows files from that.
