While messing around with some other (and newer) sims this week I had the urge to instead race in GPL and appreciated again how amazing this sim and what all of you here have done to it are. I recorded a race last night with all of the best settings/graphics that I know of in the highest quality I could to try and show off the sim in as best of light as I can.

Grand Prix Legends is my favorite sim of all time and I don't see that changing any time soon!

Really nice video!  It's amazing how the Spa67 designers transformed that track.  :)

Yay, another GPL video. Thanks Jake - your videos are how I rediscovered this masterpiece of a game, and the amazing community that surrounds it, so thanks for that too!!

I fully agree. Lately I have tried NR2003, GTR2, and PnG using all different mods. While the graphics are modern to a point, and the FFB is amazing, the mods don’t always perform like in GPL. Cars sometimes sink into the track or the tach doesn’t work in a replay. GPL has that certain something, a charm. It’s that intangible spark. Like a once in a lifetime band or team. Just the right mix of reality, fantasy and magic. Thank you Jake for being part of that.

Interestingly the link above does not show up on Safari v15 on my MacBook Air M1 but I have found the video on Jake's channel and it does indeed look great and Jake always manages to film a good race. Did you see how many comments came below the video! A testament to Jake's channel but also to the endearing legacy of GPL.

It's always a treat when you release a video. As always a great job!  Of course the GPL videos are always my favourites. Looking forward to the rest of the 66 season. :)

Perfect video as always GPLaps.
It's great that you're presenting GPL to a wider audience through your YT channel. Keep up the good work!

Great video Jake, I confirm!

but as online racer I see that it is half the fun racing vs Artificial Idiots - I love to race vs Real Humans wich are not as predictable.

Your clip made me watch the Spa67 68e race replay of UKGPL again - lots of RL drama!
Maybe you can make a video of this source - get it in the race post: https://www.simracin...p?topic=27182.0
