All are welcome. This is not just an alien race, because extra team finishing points are rewarded.
You can also take part if you were not in the previous League vs. League race.

iGOR Chatroom: #GPLRACER
A practice server will be hosting the track and mod occasionally on iGOR. Please check iGOR if it is available (or ask an admin to host it) and practice online.
On race day we all meet in the iGOR chatroom #GPLRACER
The password will be given in the iGOR chatroom #GPLRACER and posted on the forum for late comers.
For positions 1-19:
30 - 25 - 21 - 18 - 16 - 14 - 13 - 12 - 11 - 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1
3 Extra Points for each driver who can finish the race, provided you do not finish more than one lap down. You have 2 resets – they may be worth using to score team points.
If we have an uneven number of drivers from each team the numbers will be evened up after the race. E.g. if we had 10 LBGPL and 9 GPLRACER drivers the last placed LBGPL won't count.
If you should have any questions, please ask.
Please post here if you want to race for one of the teams:
If we should have a total of more than 19 drivers, we can also run on two servers.
The results of both grids will then be combined to produce the overall winner (points from Grid A + Grid .

It is disappointing that ‘aliens’, ie the people who are inexplicably, impossibly fast, seem not to have had a go at the 1955 Mod. They have all moved on to other sims, I suppose.
I can usually get close to or even below the 1955 times registered for circuits in GPLRank. Sometimes well below... For example, the GPLRank best time for the W196 at Osterreichring (Zeltw71) 1971, one of my favourite tracks... Before going onto the circuit I changed a few chassis settings. Then I did half a lap, returned to Setup, changed the gearing and drove a few laps.
My first flying lap was just under the GPLRank record (2m 7.257s). Since then, after perhaps 100 laps and various alterations to setup and gearing, I have got down to 2m 4.61s. The virtual Fangio’s best effort so far is 2m 4.45s. I am confident that I can shed at least one more second, perhaps even get below 2m 3s.
But I wonder what time an ‘alien’ would do.
1955, 1965, 1966, 1966 can am, 1967, 1967x, 1967 F2, 1967 sportscars, 1967 Formula Libre, 1968, 1969x, 1971 can am?
Also, how does the rFactor 2 Brabham BT20 compare in accuracy to the GPL mods?

My son also has a PC for GPL
We are in the same house and connected to the same router
BIG question... Can we play GPL together, and if so, how?
Iv'e tried hosting and entering IP addresses etc. but everything just times out. Sure this must be possible. If so, could someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance.

What happens is this:
1) I click on "TRAINING" or "SINGLE RACE", select the modified Spa and click on the green button.
2) After a few seconds, a popup informs me "COULD NOT INITIALIZE THE REPLAY SYSTEM". I click "OK".
3) Another popup: "CANCELLING THE WEEKEND".
Boo! Is there a simple solution to this?
