We’ve found having a reviewed “Orange Zone” reduces the high risk moves that sometimes happen on the first lap and has reduced pile-ups.  There are still occasional crashes that are unavoidable and don’t get penalties assessed but generally our race starts have been very good.

The Stop-and-Go penalty for resets has been a good alternative to the more realistic Pro Damage where GPL doesn’t allow any resets.

To join us, go to our site at http://gplvor.speedg....php?page=about where, near the bottom of that page, you’ll find a download for a simple Driver’s Profile/Questionnaire, which gets e-mailed to me.  My address is in the profile text.

Our current driver roster runs a full range of abilities with one driver who has several world records to the run of the mill guy like me (GPLRank +9 or so) or slower.  We welcome everyone from bare beginners to aliens.  We presently have driver from Sweden, Britain, South America and North America.
