Moon is a fantasy track by Luna. As the main GPL years (65-71) overlap with the space race era IRL, it was somewhat logical to connect these two :)

I arrived to the online scene in early 2004, so I missed a few thing... If anyone could put dates to these releases that would be great.

We might also want to register the start of online leagues too.

This should be pinned, really nice to have a complete overview of these milestones.

I think these could also be added:
- 2017/10 - GPL Pace Notes (Lee)
- 2012/03 - Stratos Rocks (Renault Alpine added)
- 2010/09 - Tronaasen 2010 Mountain Road Circuit (Bjørn L Finnestad)

Great idea and list Fajanko 👍

As long as this list doesn't become an epitaph of GPL🤔🤭

Long may GPL continue and the list get longer and added to 😁

1998 / 10 = VROC . As soon as the game was released, Alison Hine and John O' Keefe launched the program !

16/02/2001 : GPLEA website is online

26/03/2002 : GPLEA Honda RA 300

26/04/2002 :GPLEA Eagle T1G, but probably long before that.
Isn't the eagle the first ever released car, with sometime after the skins for the Mclaren M5 A BRM sharing the same slot ??

23/06/2002 : GPLEA Ferrari 36V

17/07/2002 :GPLEA Ferrari 48V

11/10/2002 :  GPLEA BRM P 83

  26/01/2003 : GPLEA Honda RA 273

  11/02/2003 : GPLEA Cooper T 81 / T81B

   20/07/2003  : GPLEA Brabham BT 24 and BT 20

In between the Brabys and the 43, GPLEA released the Lotus 49, but I miss the date. Since year 2000 ( but when exactly ??) Bruce Johnson  Brabham BT 24 and Völker Scholz Lotus 49 served as valuable proposition interim cars and got a well earned retirement ....

   27/03/2004 : GPLEA Lotus 43 BRM H 16 version 1.1

05/06/ 2004: GPLEA / Michael Pompert  BRM P 115, the last car completing the 67 original carset.

01/2016 : PIOUJD Cooper T86  .... Historical 67 mod and the 67 season last important missing car

Around 2001 or 2002 (cannot remember when exactly) there was the GPL Driving School with online lessons by a few advanced drivers like Jim Pearson.

ah, yeah, the GPL  driving school with tutorial, now it comes to mind again !

I remember the GPLEA group lead by Nils Ruwisch existed before they launched their website
