Thank you, Dave! :bravo:

It's nice to see Big John and his correct #7 Honda through the mist again, just like I did 45 years ago....

Sorry Gordon, I must make a correction. I was mistaken about Surtees running the #7 RA301 wingless at the
Nurburgring, the pic I posted is actually at another wet race at Rouen. We can see that Surtees has his wing
on at the start in the photo of the grid at Nurby :

Sorry to have mislead you about it.

However your memory about #7 at the German GP is correct , and here is the winged version if
you would like. :)

Wasn't very difficult for me to connect Surtees with #7. He used this very number in every German GP he participated in from 1963 till 1971.

Yes, I like the winged version very much! Many thanks for the correction.

And no problem Dave, I'm profoundly grateful that you do all this historical work. :yipee2:

Thanks Turboman . After some thought I decided to change my season to make the German GP historically correct :


[Event10]
name=German Grand Prix
shortname=German GP
trackDirectory=wetnurb
month=8
day=4
numberOfLaps=14
startingGrid=9
flag=gerflg
trackShortName=Nürburgring

then added the heavy fog into my track67 file :

[ fog ]
type = 1
density = 5.00
fog_r = 198
fog_g = 202
fog_b = 214

Some screenies of the outcome :

Dave, I LOVE what you did with the 68 German GP! In that first screenie image of the GEM+ selection screen, in the grid picture, "that's me" just right of center at the top edge of the picture, crouching down at the railing to get some good photos of the start! What, you can't see me? LOL. I actually have a 2'x3' original poster of that second picture, the program artwork. As for your attempt to model the rain and fog: looks nice, but doesn't come CLOSE to depicting just how thick the fog was at points around the circuit, or water on the the track. Rindt talked of visibility down to only 100 yards, and Hill described streams running across the road! Still, very nice job and I'm looking forward to driving it myself, thanks to you!

1968 German Grand Prix :

Found these fog settings which I like better :

[ fog ]
type = 1
density = 5.0
fog_r = 150
fog_g = 175
fog_b = 200


Attachment 1.JPGAttachment 2.JPGAttachment 3.JPG

These settings I think you will like better, Wee Scot. For the full effect of the Wet Nurburgring, make
sure you get the wetnurb track from here :

http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=9325  

Then get the falling rainpack from here :

http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=2681

and then install a nice track upgrade here post # 106, but don't replace the track ini file,only use the
loose files or you will loose the wetpavement and the track probably won't load. Alway backup your
succesfull upgraded track before trying more. :)

Thanks for pointing me to all those great files. Just got home from work and I've got several hours of Olympics to watch on the DVR, but I'm not working tomorrow, so I'll devote the day to new GPL pleasures!

I am zipping my choices for Gempics for 68 carsets I use. Really there is only Irridux's older carset
and pioujd428's (Gempic included here) Kyalami68 carset, but if someday we get them these could be used.
I am using them now for my personal 68 set, so maybe others might like them too. :D

A few previews :

EDIT : See Post #14 for the correct BRDC International Trophy Race

Total noob question .....Where are these files to be placed .?..
