Gpl F1 Mods Beyond 1969

If you don't believe me, take a close look at the F1 Seven mod for F1 Challenge 99-02, which has all the carshapes and liveries, race-by-race, of the 70-5 seasons (in top quality), and 76-9 (with lesser quality).
The amount of work they have put on that mod is astonishing: it took two modding teams and I believe they nearly went crazy after finishing 79. Just imagine modelling all the carshape variations of a Ferrari 312B3 in 73, or of Lotus (which used both the 72 and 76) in 74. On the downside, physics are not as good as they should be (although changing the tyre files helps a great deal to make the cars less grippy and more twitchy).
You'll find more info about the mod here: http://alliance.bond.../f1c_tracks.htm

Doesn`t the 1969 Extra mod already have more than 9 slots?

And to add my 2p-worth, I would love to drive the black-and-gold JPS Lotus 72 from the early 70's.

With the 1950s mod coming out this month I now am most curious to see a 1968 and 1935/'37 mod. I have no idea if I am right but I thought the latter was in the early making??
For the rest I think I'd like to see the remaining Tasman tracks (I do not think we have all of them yet?)
and some of the F2 tracks that are not there yet (Südschleife and non-Championship).

You are right.

It's ok Pete, GPL mods are not compulsory.

1939 - I like the Auto Union Typ D better than Typ C, and W154 is at least as interesting as W125...
1961 - just one word... Sharknose !!!

True, but i'd like to drive them. So many now that I won't bother with.

Indeed thinking of driving a Lotus 72 is what first triggered the idea.
As said, allowing a few minor historical inaccuracies, 9 slots will allow for a pretty complete 1971 grid (see below). If more slots are available it would only get better.
The order of the cars is modelled after the 1971 French grand prix.
- Lotus 72D
- Ferrari 312B2
- Brabham BT34
- McLaren M19A
- Tyrrell 003
- BRM P160
- March 711
- Matra MS120B
- Surtees TS9
Does this make any sense?

Leave GPL for the classics.

Similar to gpl,with classic bikes,riders and tracks. I know this is probably impossible to match mod with gpl,but I think someone once mentioned that there was talk of a bike and sidecar mod,back in the day?
Maybe a classic motorbike mod would ideally match up with microprose gp500.If I had modding abilities and permission,I would certainly try the gp500 way 😃
