i notice  that you were searching a couple of years ago  for a color pic of Derek bell on a church farm  Brabham at the Atlas nostalgia forum , im looking for the same thing , did you ever find one

Those '68 F2s were beautiful. Wide wheels, hugh chassis that were practically a F1 only with a smaller engine. My favourite without a doubt is the Matra MS7.

No, but I emailed him and Derek told me he thought it was blue, so I guessed which shade of blue.

when i did edit the ini   to include Jackie Stewart  , i had to dump Brian Hart, always felt guilty about it ,  in fact the church farm was driven more time in 68 by Hart then Bell who left to ferrari, well Hart is back with a new livery , Alan Rees leave  he did only 3-4 races in 68 and only 3points

Denis made these files for the SC building and one of the trees but they were missed out of our update.

I have added them to the first post or get them here  :)

Paul, does it use a different track folder name than the original track? If it does I would put it on the GPLTD.

Thank you so, so much.  You chaps who make these tracks are brilliant, I get so much enjoyment from Grand Prix Legends, I cannot thank you enough.  You can almost smell the atmosphere at Thruxton, very 1960's. Amazing effort.

Sir Percival
