Hi,

I've been spending the last three weeks slowly getting back into GPL after a ten year break. My aim, this time around, is to enjoy racing rather than hot-lapping, and today I did just that.

The intention was to learn an historic track which I hadn't driven before and to be competitive against the AI. Well, mission accomplished. I've just had an absolute blast with the AI in my 1966 McLaren M2B. Really close racing and I felt the fear and excitement of the original drivers.

So, a huge thank you to the everyone who keeps GPL going. This is what it's all about. Lee, I'm loving the head-movement patch now that I've got it to work.

Now for my next challenge in the McLaren: but which track should I choose?

Pete

Janakkala!

Seems daunting at first, but it's a lot of fun once you've memorised it.
