I need a little confirmation from the experts here .... I'm looking at this page in Wikipedia ... https://en.wikipedia...ar_Championship

Am I correct that in 1967 the GT Prototypes did NOT participate at Hockenheim or Zeltwig ? (I did add them to my 67gt install because they are just to great not to include)

But DID participate at Mugello  and  Villars-sur-Ollon ....

And if so, currently the only tracks of those two available in GPL is the beta version of the new Mugello circuit by Ginetto.. correct ?

You are correct, although the categories are not that clear as to what is a Prototype and what a GT/Sports car. For example the GT40 is a GT while the Ferrari is a Prototype and then there were subclasses to each of the categories based on displacement.

But both tracks are missing as the Mugello beta we have wasn't build until 1974, before that the circuit was on public roads similar to Targa.
Vlilars sur Ollon was a hillclimb, bit off an odd inclusion IMO

Thanks for clarification .... Yeah, at 34.5 miles, Mugello is a monster of a track alright.... I'll bet that was some race to see ....
