55 mod in the rain???? Cripes!!

I'll need an egg shell under my throttle foot.

And my book of excuses would probably need an update as well :o   Hats off to the enthusiastic mod team who never fail to amaze, hard to believe that after almost 15 years I am still looking forward to new content :hat-tip:

Keeps us all going :hat-tip:  Bob

Thanks modders!

Personally I like the most "formula cars" (i.e. open-wheel), but every mod is more than welcomed!

Regarding a '71 mod, mentioned before, I just wanna say that even existing with another sims, GPL is different to all of them. You can drive the best rFactor mod and never will be as the "worst" (if it's possible) GPL mod. So, liking both GPL formula cars as I like them, I think would be GREAT a '71 (or any other open-wheel) mod for GPL.

Cheers, Marcos.

Agree with all the above. GPL has given me so much knowledge of historic motorsport and made me really appreciate it.

GPL is THE place to go for simulated historic motorsport and i certainly think another F1 Mod would capture the headlines in the SIM community, especially as it will be done to 'GPL standards' with the usual eye for detail, so the 55 Mod would be a great addition and the first F1 Mod in a while.

I've started to get into the 71 Can-Ams this year, and so would look forward to the 66's also.

Anything from the Mod team is fine by me as its always top quality and blends in with all the other Mods in having that GPL feel.

Keep up the great work. Its appreciated by many. There is so much content to go at already that i'm blown away with what we have.

A few years ago I did a quick computation - if you ran a one hour practice, half hour qualifying, and two hour race at every (then) available track (not counting duplicates) with each car from each mod ...you would drive over fifteen years non-stop.

There are probably a million people that have been doing this for the last 15 years...they've been so busy driving that they haven't had time to post anything to the forums.  :)

Can't wait for both the next CanAm mod (my favorite year) and the 55 mod. Thanks in advance to all the wonderful people who make these.

Here's a great video of the 55 race at Spa. Very professional video with a clear picture. It shows the track being prepared for the race. Qualifying in a heavy rain. Lots of close ups of the pits and garage working on the cars. The worlds biggest tire pressure gauge. All the drivers. The whole race with Fangio dominating.

Watch this if you want a real feel of the 55 race.

Thanks Pete, great find. I guess I should go back to the drawing board for some '55 updates...
Also thanks to that, I've now got videos of '55, '58, '62, '65, '66 and of course some footage of '67. '71 GT race would also be appreciated ;). My pet project

It was mine too when I was a tester. I was heartbroken when the project was dropped. I wish I had kept what I had on the mod. I lost everything on a hard drive crash.
