The Nearly Men

Today, 04:05 PM

Which driver, throughout F1 history, deserved to win an F1 Championship,and never quite achieved that accolade 🤔

For me, been British, it's got to be Sir Stirling Moss.

Who do you think should have won a title, and deserved to win a championship. But unfortunately never did.

Just a few pointers Bruce McLaren, Jacky Ickx, Ronnie Peterson, Rubens Barrichello, Felipe Massa 🤔 Hope I haven't answered them all.

Your thoughts please 🤞👍

Can't Return To Pits - Windows 10 Update Problem?

24 Feb 2020

Hi all,

I don't know if this has been asked before, if it has: my apologies for not searching well enough.

GPL has been running smoothly ever since I rediscovered it after some years. I have been running the original game and the 1955, 1965 and 1969X-mods.

Somehow, when I fired up GPL (69X, Montjuic) today, it seemed to work fine, but it stops working when I try to return to the pits. This is what happens:

I hit <escape>  and <enter>
The screen turns black for some seconds as usual
Then the screen turns very dark blue and the usual sounds (replays, other cars) are audible but I can't see the control screen.

After some clicking with the mouse and/of pushing escape, the game crashes and returns tot the GEM+ - window.

This happens in the 69X-mod (Montjuic, Monaco, Monza) but also in the original GPL.

Any ideas/solutions?
Any help is appreciated!

Thrustmaster Th8A Shifter Mods For More Immersion

23 Feb 2020

For all like to mod the TM TH8A shifter a little bit, to get more imersion, i can recommend on of the shifter mods available:

1. short shifter plate: https://www.ebay.de/...er/303349234123

Just perfect quality and look, and shortens the way in the gates. Plug and play, no calibration needed. Great value for the price and looks awesome!

2. "Klick-Klack" shifter mod, that gives you much better tactile feeling of the shifter running thrue the gates. You really have the feeling to engage a gear.

There is a cheap ebay version available: https://www.ebay.de/...ts/254473489015 - this is the one i am using. Great feeling, but the 3d print will not last forever.
"Clixbeetle" version, reviewed by SimracingGarage: https://www.youtube....=JuLTbi7OMBc&t= - available on ebay: https://www.ebay.com...RS/233496939426 - imo expensive, ships from Australia, but much better quality.
Do-it-yourself 3d-print version from "Peter Makes Things": https://www.youtube....=zjpHEQ71D44&t= - this is probably the best fitting version of this mod, Peter offers the files and links attached to the video. He is a great guy and i can only recommend his parts. Using his "Thrustmaster real quick release" (see his other videos) and everything is very well done.

Give it a try, this will raise the immersion to the next level!
