Thank you Pedro. Well done to Ray Cattini aka Ronnie Peterson at UKGPL ;)

This summerbreak serves me well for hotlapping and trying a few other sims, also broke a few of Craig Leech's WR's with F2, which are very sharp :)

I'd have never thought getting there, but at last I have gotten to -80. All my cars are now in the top 75 all-time. Now I'm aiming to get all in the top 50, like -85/-450 or so. GPL is still getting more fun. Focus as always lies with online racing though ;)

Some goals left:

17 at Kya, 18 at Mosport, 52 at Rouen, 43 at Mexico. sub8 in BRM at Ring, and generally improving my (monster)rank.

Thanks Andy. I've won a lot of c'ships online, but to be an example or to be an inspiration for other GPLers is the highest praise. Keep at it, you might surprise yourself ;)

Great lap Robert, and congratulation with this new record!

The lap looks exactly  the same as mine, the only difference is that you are much faster ;)

Keep them coming!

Congrats! Side note but I really like the tyre tread, it looks more like the ones in the 69 mods? Also, it's odd to me to hear the original sliding sound as I've always used the one from the 2004 demo!

Thanks again guys :)

Iestyn, not sure about the tyre tread if it's an add-on or so. I've always kept using these sounds out of 2002 since I'm used to it. If I would change to other sounds it will be a setback initially before getting used to it. I'm quite conservative with changes and not the most adventurous guy, but incredibly stubborn. I suppose that's why it took me so long to get a decent understanding of GPL :P

Pedro, if you have replays at 60fps you can merge them with mine in GPLRA, or simply compare the laps with all the data and graphs. I've more often heard ppl saying it looks like they are doing the same like me, but in reality my momentum is simply higher. Since I have a smooth driving style, it doesn't look too spectacular I guess. But it's very hard to pull off that laptime. Still my lines weren't perfect, and made a mistake at Jukskei, but kept good momentum and the Esses line was perfect.

I Know Robert, and like you say it looks so easy but isn't.

I have respect for you skills and envy your talent.
Great to read how enthusiastic you still are after all there years

Thanks for the "replay merge" tip!
