None of the AI cars show a Number in the number field on the car bodies--regardless of carset.  What file am I missing to display other car numbers?

Are you sure you have the correct driv.ini file for the Mod you are using? If the details in the driv.ini file don't match the available graphics files, no AI car numbers are displayed.

I do have driver (probably for the original 67 cars), driv55, driv65, driv66, drivGT, drivSC, drv69w, drvc67, drvx67, dr71CA for each mod.
I even have drit64, drit65, drit66, drit67, drit68 for the Tasman cars.   All the files look good in Notepad so I'm not sure what's wrong.

I think this happens when you finish qualifying and the go-to-grid sequence starts. If you press the green button before the red button at the bottom left (at about 24 seconds in the count-down) appears, the AI car numbers haven't been drawn.

If it happens with all car sets then Bob's answer is more likely.

You say all the driv.in files look ok, I assume you mean in the main gpl folder.  Each track folder can contain driv.ini files. These can cause the ai to have missing numbers, but would only affect the specific track/mod combination.

I have the same issue. AI are missing numbers but only in the 66  and 67 F1 mods. It doesn't seem to be track-specific. Weird it would be in the 67 F1 since I just did a clean install on a new system. I noticed the ai numbers are also not on the cars during qualifying.
