Awesome stuff! The original was the first track I ever drove in GPL!

Now sadly I have to try and figure out how to get my wheel stand under my desk. Something I had been putting off for a multitude of reasons... HAHA!

Thanks Jim!

Just watching your lap now Jim as it downloads!

Can't wait to see the challenge that now awaits us.. the first 3 lap pro race will be immense!

PS. Is your Brabham a custom colour? For 'Black' Jack? I have an old one installed on mine as well for a few of the numbers, an STP Red custom Brabham back from the RSC days IIRC.

Thanks guys for all the positive comment.

It means a lot to me that it works for you, you enjoy the experience and at least a few of you see it as more than a "novelty" drive that you put away after a few laps.

To answer your question lestyn16, this is a Brabham BT 24 that I painted a colour to my personal "Privateer" taste last year, complete with twin Australian and Manx flags.

Its not mine to distribute as the base textures are made by the original car set painters.

In Glen Helen, Ballaugh Bridge with "Air" and at the Gooseneck.

Hello Jim,your 14 year odyssey has come to a wonderful end and the track you've shared with us is the culmination of your epic journey ! Thank you for sharing it with us.
  I haven't driven it yet but I believe this will be, in the words of Bill and Ted, "MOST EXCELLENT" !  . :punk:

Thank you very much Jim.

Wonder how it felt when you finally pushed the button to release this masterpiece.

I feel honoured to finally be able to drive this historic track.
Respect for your patience, perseverance and skills.

Thank you Jim. Looks incredible. I know it will be a "gold standard" track.

Very frustrated as it won't work on my mobile. Looking forward to getting back to my pc to drive it.

Sit back and enjoy a rest - watching the TT?

This day marks the 75 anniversary of the D-Day or operation Overlord. Many australians lost their lives on the beaches of my country,to participate in the liberation of my country.

  It is pure coincidence,but today I can't help but think of the friendship of the Australian people, and now of all the european nations.

75 years ago we smelt the sweet taste of freedom.The freedom that give us the enjoyement of driving fast and happy on the beautiful Isle Of Man countryside and crossing its charming villages. .
After such dedication to the I O M,I like to think, Jim, that you are released by the delivery of your masterpiece.

The GPLTD is now updated:
http://gpltd.bcsims.com/?sbtd=AAIOM


@ROOKIE4EVER
Thx for pointing to it. I have fixed it.
The "m" in the track.ini track_length = 37.728m
is of course not meters, it is miles. ;)

@ginetto:
Thx for the GEM+ picture.

@Greg:
Thx for the new GEM+ picture here: http://srmz.net/inde...=80#entry140292
I have replaced ginetto`s with yours on the GPLTD.
Those who use GEM+ can now download the picture from the Track Database for the 37.75 mile Isle Of Man Mountain Course by clicking on your right mouse button.

Hee hee, I'm glad you volunteered to do this TP! If my "knighting" is anything like my driving, I would have accidentally chopped his flippin' head off! :lol:
