Welcome to the 1967 Sportcars EXTRA Mod for Grand Prix Legends  which models the 1967 International Manufacturers Championship.

This new Mod recreates the 1967 Sports Car Manufacturers Championship that began with the original 2010 v1 mod.  Version 2 differs significantly from the v1 by adding several enhancements.  These include:
  • Adds the Alfa Romeo T33.  The Alfa competed in the under 2.0L prototype class and competed against the 2.0L Porsche 910.  However, the Alfa was very unreliable and Porsche easily won the class.
  • Adds a new physics set for all cars.  Also, the physics adds a unique and exciting new feature for the Chaparral 2F.  As many already know, the real world car had a moveable rear wing that added downforce.  The driver controlled the wing with his left foot pedal...out for wing down and more downforce in the corners and in for leveling the wing for less drag and more speed on the straights.  This mod allows the player to control the wing position dynamically while driving using either the keyboard, steering wheel buttons, or the clutch pedal.
  • New graphics for all the cars which includes new or revised .3do files for all cars.
  • Adds 3D driver faces and helmets for all cars.
  • New engine sounds for all the cars.
  • New menu screens.
  • New mod unique graphics files for the 1967 championship and nonchampionship tracks.
  • New mod unique AI files for each of the 1967 championship and nonchampionship tracks.
  • Adds player and AI refueling for long races.  Cars are limited to their real world fuel capacities.
This new v2 mod is completely separate from the original v1 mod and you can have both mods installed at the same time.  However, if you want to maintain only one mod, then you should use v2.

Works now.
I have just re-uploaded the files (mod and server track files) with new naming.
If you have downloaded the files with old naming pls download again even so the content has not changed only the naming.

Merry Christmas to all.

Thx to all who have worked on this mod.
Great team work!

Thanks to everyone involved with creating this mod. It's a really nice Christmas present. I'm especially really looking forward to driving the new Alfa T33.

Just one question though. Are car setups for the original Sports/GT mod compatible with the new version? I can understand that old setups may need to be adjusted, as you've changed the physics, and this may change the way the cars feel. But can the setup files be loaded into the new mod?

wasn't part of the physics team, but I am the greatest fan of their work. I would first try the default setups, witch are very good, and maybe You need some adjustments for Your own taste.
You will enjoy it.
