That size of track with that quality... with that options... all those years...



And I don't forget the abridged version, wich only default is to be a "mid-real" track!

Excellent work Jim! Thank you very much.

It would have been sad not to see your work completed. I hoped at the very least you'd let one of the other track makers finish it if you couldn't.

Like Targa Florio, I never could have imagined many years ago, that I'd ever drive a track like this.

Thanks again. :)

I just have to say that I've paid £126 to have my steering wheel shipped over from the UK to Japan just so I can drive this track.

I can't wait!

My wheel alone didn't cost that much.  :)

But it will be worth every penny to drive this fabulous track.

Who said the Nûrburgring was a dangerous track ? :biglaugh:


   Behind our protective videoscreens, it is better to CTD than Crashes To Death


The hard to believe list of IOM motorcycle racers fatal injuries, this course must be a long time and forever winner on the Guiness book of terrible records

Thanks for the answer! The wait is killing me lol! I re-downloaded GPL and all the patches, fix, mods, just to enjoy this track; I can't believe finally it has been released to the public!

Although any death is tragic, that list is tiny compared to the number of people that are killed on public roads every day, and we let that happen.

Motor racing is and should be dangerous. The danger is part of the appeal.
No one forces riders or drivers to do it. In fact they are queuing up to do it.

Good on them showing two fingers to the nanny state we now live in.

I have a strong view on this, akin to Paul's, contained in the first few paragraphs of the

PDF Readme and Driving Guide.

in your AAIOM Track Folder or as a separate Download my site.

Thanks Paul  for your opinion

to limit the topic to some statistics related to my country, in the mid sixties, there was 23000 people a year killed on public roads, not less.

Now, we have around 3000, with a car traffic let say four time more dense, but political men and general opinion wld like to reduce the speed limit lower than 80 Km/hour

We have entered the Big Brother age, where the general thinking is that the idea of the death must be only a concept, not a reality...

Jim

Just want to say a big thanks for this. I, like everyone here, have been checking SRMZ for updates over the past decade and I'm so pleased you have finished this to your usual high standards. Absolutely incredible piece of work.

So many great releases for GPL by this talented community, but for me, Targa, Spa67 and IOM Full Course are 3 tracks that have really pushed the boundaries of what is possible - and - have really highlighted to the wider community that GPL is still the place to go for the authentic Grand Prix experience on incredible tracks in their original format.

Really well done

Clutch
