Lots of fun shooting this video of my old love GPL on the most modern hardware.

Thanks Remco for the link.

Enjoyed the watch.

Was slavering at the set up. One day for me. Maybe

Nice to see the original box of gpl. Got a couple, in my collection, myself. But lucky bar-steward with it sealed.

Happy New year To You !

Thanks Remco to pay homage of the first 1967 round with your tools .Look like the correct hardware for GPL expanded possibilities; If we had all already such equipment at the game release, sure that it wld have been  a much much greater success at the box office.

staying at  Kyalami, but one year after ....50 years ago today , it should have been an Happy New Year to Gentleman Jim

  some pics there :  http://srmz.net/inde...topic=12179&hl=

  50 years back for his 25th championship victory at Kyalami. The one that put him ahead of the not less great Fangio.

I did a little remembering on the Autodiva  http://www.autodiva....12&start=1680   french forum  and at the autosport bulletin Nostalgia Forum

Very much enjoy these videos Remco.
Thanks for keeping us along for the ride.

Amazing where interest, enthusiasm, and good ideas can go.

Like the shop tour video also.

That setup is just so inviting to drive the game endlessly. I like the look of the shifter though the lever could use another 4-5cm in extension.

It will come with at least two different length levers, maybe three. You can go from formula style short throw to Sierra Cosworth length levers!
