The 1970 Tasman Cup was run with F5000 cars. Here is a link about that season :

Thanks very much, Dave!  Reading about the Tasman Cup re-kindled my interest in GPL about 10 years ago now, and was what ultimately prompted me to start editing and painting some "F5000" carsets.  Here is another super resource for those with an interest in the Tasman races--the site covers not only the 5 litre era in the Tasman Cup, but the pre F5000 series as well:  http://www.sergent.c...tor/tas70s.html

I once saw a news reel of a Lotus that was specailly modified to race in the new "Taz" series being off loaded from a ship, precariously, in a cargo net, at some port in  Austrailia. ...i had never seen a race car being transported that way ...so i follow the story... to my delight i discovered a new thriving spirit in racing that made me say " WOW!!! thats racing"...the determination ,dedication and devotion was evident everywhere... it was exciting , it was everything you wanted in all out competiveness and speed...shear intesity ..fast and dangerous... i was hooked

i am indeed glad to see that this genre is being honored, by having the look and feeling of this era envoked, captured and organized in simulation for others to enjoy as well :bravo: well done... Argyle1968    :up: :woohoo2:

And the sound was amazing, as a 5 or 6 year old I was drawn to these cars whenever they were on track and that feeling was the same well into my late teens and early 20's, I was lucky enough to see full fields of these things thundering around various racetracks over the years, the vibration underfoot as these beasts thundered past was fantastic. I really miss those days but thankfully I can still remember what they were like, can't remember where I left my car keys most of the time but I do remember the important stuff :P

Fantastic work Argyle! Bravo!
Is this project still going on? :D

We can expect for a F5000 mod to be released in the near future (next 2-3 years)? :)

On behalf of Argyle, I can say that there is a small group of Modders at the Repository who are looking at a possible
Mod someday and gathering further material, but there are many other WIP Mods that are already further along that will
see a release before a POSSIBLE F5000 will, so GPL time shall be applied. :)

Thank you for the kind answer Dave :) should it be useful, I've just uploaded an update to Thundercars slick tyres ;) Textures should be good for the F5000 carset as well :)

.......................
The purpose of this thread is to gauge interest in this project, in particular to see if 1) anyone may be interested in any of the carskins or carsets as they are finished, and 2) to determine whether there is any current or potential track design activity or interest in the following tracks, all of which were historically relevant and an integral part of Formula 5000 racing:

Pukekohe
Teretonga
Warwick Farm
...............

Resurrecting an old thread here but anyway.... :)

Pukekohe - have a basic layout with levels but needs a redraw due to some map inaccuracies (both GP Loop and 67 layouts) - Lots of trackside objects to draw so this one a long way from release

Teretonga - pretty advanced, no AI yet, needs more trackside objects - probably closest to being finished but taking longer than expected (both 65 and 68 layouts)

Warwick Farm - a driveable track with levels but no AI yet, some trackside objects but lots still to do, plus a complicated build with a horse racing track tangled up in the layout, plus a couple of lakes. Probably next one to release after Teretonga but still a long, long way from being ready.

Have tried the Thundercars mod round these tracks and they're a lot of fun.... a proper F5000 mod would be fantastic!

It's been a long time.  I lost my hard drive and had to start from scratch but it's been fun searching for photos again and trying to reproduce the liveries.  Here's a few screens of "Formula 5000/Libre" races from different series on different tracks.
