Once again, this looks like it will be a Mod that is worthy as a full simulation in itself. Hopefully taking GPL into a whole new decade will bring in some fresh fans, who just want to drive the 55 cars.

Ok. Thanks for the explanation. The look of the Streamliner always confused me about the rules for F1 at that time.

This is absolutely great! Thank a bunch for all the work. It was worth the wait.

I had no intention, it just happened.
The team has seen the beta versions of the movie before.

Now, there was a version derived from the W196 in 1955 that had a 3 liter engine, two seats, headlights and such. This was the 300 SLR. It was used at the Mille Miglia, Dundrod TT, Targa Florio and the ill-fated LeMans.

Yes, you're right, but it really didn't occur to me until today.
But as maddog says, it's best not to show everything at once.
Fantastic work on the latest GPL epic promo!!!

What's with the Vanwall shifter? Function reallife and in the sim
Front engine simulation meaning what exactly? Different weight distribution, etc, I have to say the video looks a bit doctored with the smoking engine after it blows.
Can we turn the brake indicator off if we wish so?
What does conversion beta mean in regards to tracks?
The last one is a bit OT but have you found out what the blade like structures are behind the front wheels on some cars?
Keep up the great work, looking great so far.

Vanwall shifter.... I believe that you mean the Connaught preselector gearbox. This is a steering column shifter that only visually resembles the actual mechanism. It does move (along with the driver's right hand) in the correct manner. Rather than go into much detail on how a preselector gearbox operates, please google that item and search for some cool YouTube vids.
Front engine simulation correctly models the weight distribution and any engine blowups. As to the escaping radiator steam.... that was just a video enhancement for the movie.
We will supply an alternate brake fade indicator file, which has no color for fully-working brakes. You still get yellow for fading and red for dangerously low braking ability. Believe me, you would not want to drive these cars without any indication of your current brake state. R/L drivers had the ability to 'feel' brake pedal firmness.... and probably 'smell' hot brakes!
As regards to the tracks shown in the movie... some are fully finished 1950s tracks and some are beta (not completely transformed) '54-'55 track conversions of already released tracks.
The horizontal 'blade like' structures behind the front wheels are deflectors to keep rain or kicked-up dirt from being thrown back onto the driver.
Thank you for your questions... and your kind comments.

Hi Saiph. We believe that the "feel" you will have will let you know the limits of your vehicle. The rest is up to you
