GPLaps has done another great race with the 1955 F1 mod...this time at Aintree.

If you haven't been watching these, it's a great way to view the mod.  Also promotes GPL for viewers outside the GPL community.

For those who have been following the discussion about car differentials, he tried a 30/85/6 setting for this race!

Great job.  :)

Thanks for sharing! 55 mod is so challenging and fun to drive, and the braking mechanism is a whole new world to explore. (wish I can convince more of my friends to try it)

Exactly! Everyone's discussing "why I am still playing Grand Prix Legends for 20 years" - I'm a new simracer, playing GPL for about a year - with GPLaps being largely responsible for it!    :drive1:

It was an exciting race ! Those ramp angels he used seemed pretty extreme but it worked for him. I hope he finishes his 66 season some day. Thanks jxeboy  :)

I have not seen this particular race yet but yeh, I watch/have watched all GPLaps videos. Really enjoy them. Great that his videos are bringing in new GPL`ers too.

I still don`t know how he can talk and drive like that. It`s part of what makes the videos so good though imo. :)

Thx Lee for pointing us to it.
I also like his vids.
They are a great promotion for GPL.

Me neither. First rule "when daddy races, never ask him any questions" :D

"...he tried a 30/85/6 setting for this race..."

Well... With all my respect for GPLaps (I like also his video...), I wouldn't be a pest, but... If he had used some settings just a little bit less unstable, or if you prefer less fast, maybe he wouldn’t have lost three times the opportunity to finish at least third, and why not second...

But this is of course only the point of view of an authentic historical old cuss... :unsure:

It's always a risk reward! I don't think there would have been an opportunity to drive fast enough to finish 2nd or 3rd if I had set the Diff to a more conservative setting.

I like the way Jimmy Broadbent is on his way to 200,000 subscribers and has become a bit of a sim racing star, but he still sometimes announces his videos as "a GPLaps Wannabe"

Up to Mr Jimmer, although I suspect he is quite a bit quicker than me.
