Very nice! Thank you. It gives also an hint for a real life original program cover still missing for Mexico 67.

Did you guys notice the footage of Solana during practice get into Clark's no. 5 car and go out to do laps ? The painted
number looks like the normal "5" with white circle backing. but in the race Clark's car had the 5 in white with no circle
backround on it.

Attached File  picture001.JPG   73.74K   42 downloadsAttached File  tumblr_mcni8yuJbw1rod8iso1_400.jpg   31.85K   43 downloads

From the Into The Red site Motorsport report :

1st Practice :

Solana's Lotus was found to have bearing trouble in its Cosworth V8 engine and so mechanics started fitting the spare engine as practice began,



Clark's Lotus was the first car to show its pace and he was very quickly down to 1:51, with Brabham a second behind



Solana was given the chance of practising in Clark's car and the team pulled him in after only a few laps when his time was down to 1:52.86


Clark bettered his time, coming down to 1:49.80, and almost immediately Hulme clipped off 0.01 second. It was now that Clark stated that in the last minutes he would drop the times into the 1:48 bracket, and 10 min. from the end of practice he did just that, with a time of 1:48.97


2nd Practice :

Overnight there had been a stir around in Team Lotus for Clark's usual car, 49/2, was numbered for Solana and Clark was driving the first car, 49/1 with the new engine. Hill's 49/3 was smoking badly and an oil pipe was found to be fractured.



Clark went out to put in some fast ones and got down to 1:47.56


As Clark sat on the pit counter in the last 10 minutes Hill, Gurney and Amon went out. Hill was unable to get within one second of Clark's time; Gurney gave up, unable to break the 1:48 time, while Amon's last lap was given by the team at 1:47.9 - in fact it was four-hundredths of a second the wrong side of 1:48.


With the end of practice race preparation began. On Clark's 49/1 Lotus the monocoque was found to be cracked, again at the right-hand lower radius arm mounting point. This part of the monocoque on this car had been repaired when buckled at Mosport in practice, earlier by Hill in testing, and earliest of all on the first day at Snetterton when Mike Costin gave the brand new car full acceleration from the hairpin and pushed both lower radius arms somewhere into the monocoque



Race :


On the next lap Solana failed to appear. The pin which connects the lower link to the left front upright had broken on braking for a left-hand corner and in turning the whole thing broke the top of the upright. Fortunately, in a left-hand bend all the weight was on the right-hand wheels so he was able to stop on the grass without doing any further damage, nor scooping up those spectators sitting in front of the safety banks.




NO CLUTCH - Clark drove the whole race without using the clutch. From L3 until the chequered flag fell he led the competition at record speed nonetheless

I noticed there are missing tires of GPL track in the esses before the straight leading down to the hairpin
shown in the footage.

Sorry guys. I remembered wrong. Then, I am happy to correct my statement in: the video confirms also the correctness  of the Mexico '67 program cover introduced in the Mexico_multiseason_update. It is always good to know. :wave:

I have Mexico with all missed tires. I had made it in the bining of this year for myself. If GPL Rank don't bother you I can send you my files.

I'm interested too :)
I think nobody will be faster with more tires around the track, so there shouldn't be any problem with the rankers...

Ok, give me some time please. I need to update groove and to make few adjustments to LP files. I haven't finished work on them yet.

Yup, there are tyres on the apex of almost all the corners which would stop us cutting some of them in GPL. They start much earlier in turn 1 (now named after Moises Solana incidentally) and on turn 5, then every corner through the Esses.

Maybe Papyrus left some out to keep the frame rates up?

There are some major errors in the original Papy tracks - I think this is just one more rather than keeping the the frame-rate up.
