What is this? Are these GPL cars?

It's an old mod, I'm not sure but if I remember correctly it's a rFactor conversion.

Not worth your time, it's a very bad mod with awful physics.

Not THAT old, the last update for it, to so called version 1.4, was done in Sept '17. Whether it's good enough handling-wise I don't know, haven't driven it as I'm more into CanAms and tintops nowadays. Many people seem to like it very much, though.

Look at it the other way - one can always use it as a historic "grid filler" while driving stock Lotus or Fezza.

I didn't know rFactor had all those cars? Did they get them from GPL?

Ah, Simracingdream: the THIEFS are back at it again. They're the most despicable group ever put together.
Imagine this, for a beat:

1. Slimjim (rFactor F1Classic) rips off GPLEA models.
2. GPLEA calls him out for it, telling him to make his own models.
3. Slimjim makes his own models, getting somewhat good success.
4. Romanian group Simracingdream steals Slimjim's work, repackages it to AC, slips the Lotus 49 physics on ALL cars.
5. Last step: have the unmitigated GALL to ask at least 10 euros to "acquire a licence" to use the mod, doxing everyone calling them out on their bullshit.

If it wasn't clear enough, they're amongs the few people I'd LOVE to burn at the stake. Despicable bastards.

Ah right, that was the story behind the mod indeed. I remember there was something sketchy going on. Luckily it's easy to find a free download link, even though that's still not worth it.

To be fair, one more step should be added as well:

6. this "payware" abomination-of-a-mod leaks out, Bazza takes it, reworks physics of all cars to make them more or less in-line with historic specs and makes it available for free.

P.S. A bit of a trivia - as of now, the history repeats itself with another old mod - the '75 one. Stolen by the same "10 Euro" guys, leaked and being reworked by Bazza again, with intention of free distribution when it's done.

Offering it for free doesn't take anything away from it being stolen. He's still a thief.

So.. You don't use updated cars because the RA300 was never licensed? Please.

Bazza spends more time building and tweaking these mods than he gets the chance to drive them. If some hint of GPLEA work is still buried in there it should be regarded as a compliment. At least this way 30000+ are enjoying the spirit of '67.

Agreed with Remco, it's easy to calling someone, but if someone took time and worked hard to make something (new or reworked) for "free" (payware is bad of course), should at least respect the guy's effort. Having seen a lot modders quit the scene is sad. In the end it's just a game, why so serious?

(Even since I read that infamous thread on Clermont-Ferrand 65 texture update, I feel disgusted. Those talented modders probably never return, the recent departure of Thomas is a great loss too :( )
