After eight years of construction we are done. The CanAm66 mod project went from something simple to something grand, challenging, and unique. It only happened because of the mod team's enthusiasm and skill on all things related to GPL and racing. In the end your team delivered beautiful looking, sounding, and properly performing cars to compliment awesome new tracks, and to make this as an immersive racing experience as possible. I, for one, am forever in debt to and thank the entire GPL mod team, testers, contributors, advisors, and friends we have all made along the way. Time for fun...

As Pete Lyons said :

"Hard to believe it's been half a century — yet we still remember the mighty machines of the Canadian-American Challenge Cup Series and how our road courses trembled under our shoes!
Launched in 1966, the Can-Am was a province of pure performance. Rules and restrictions were amazingly minimal. That's why the series gave us the most imaginative, innovative, intriguing sports racing cars anyone had ever seen ... and the intrepid individuals who handled them were pretty special, too. "

:fireworks2: :thankyou: :fireworks1:

Thanks guys! Downloading now, can't wait to try this out! (Another TotalRank to complete! :up: :hithead: )

QUICK TIP for all downloaders: If you've visited the GPL '66 Can-Am site previously, you may find that when you go there now, the site appears to be corrupted, and won't load properly in your browser. I'm running FireFox, and this happened to me. I fixed it by doing the "usual" thing, clearing my browser cache. Hope that helps!
