Thanks again for all your work, just downloaded and installed this time without any issues. (This download was about 6mb bigger than the original from last night)

Looking forward to having a drive later on today.

Having a few issues. Ran the GPL inspector to check my install. Main problem is the text display for missing items can't be enlarged so I see 1.5 items to fix. Second is it tells me Oulton67 is not installed. I d/l Oulton 67 from the database and it install "Oulton". So I still don't have  Oulton67 installed. I have Jarama, but not Jarama67 Do I need to rename files or do I have the wrong tracks?

I guess I missed something somewhere.

I have waited most of my life since about 1966 after seeing race reports in Road and Track to see this mod. It is SOOO worth the wait. I finally get to drive a Chaparral 2E around these classic tracks. Thank you mod team for all your long years of work. I know I have years of enjoyment ahead of me. Fantastic work. This guarantees that I will always have a working copy of GPL on a computer in my home. Newer mods may come and go, but GPL is here to stay.
:bowdown2:  :thankyou: :bravo:  :wubit:I hope my wife understands at some level.

I don't understand.  Why would GPL inspector be telling you you're missing tracks?  What does this have to do with the CanAm 66 mod?

Yes, the sim will display GPL 1.2.0.2 very briefly at the lower edge near the right-hand side of the first loading screen.

The GPL version 1.3 patch is located (all the way at the bottom of post #1) here:

Thanks, I downloaded the mod (after persistent status updates from a friend :faint: haha), the recommended tracks, and it inspired me to go through all of my downloads. After OCD'ing through everything, I got all files renamed in a neat manner (also for NR2003), re-obtained GEM+ and soon will be trying GPL again :).

Please check to see that you have AI Speed set to "1" within GEM+ before you start Can-Am '66.  :)

Afaik,
just use the same warm tire values like the F1-66 ;)

CA66 - Front 26psi - Rear 26psi - 100°C

I've just done my first laps with this mod in the Chaparral, what a joy to drive I love the physics that have been put together for the 1966 CanAms

Thanks again to the Mod team this is an outstanding piece of work, you guys make GPL Rock...

Well done!!!

:bravo:
