Find the new GPL Times Special Edition over HERE.



:bowing: So many thanks to all who collaborated on this massive project. This has been a work in worldly proportions as people from around the globe have helped in their own way. (Webpage by Sky, slightly modified by In Dust Trios.)

Enjoy this masterpiece and don't forget to say thanks to all who contributed especially the principals: Ginetto, Richard Cooke, and Sergio Loro (with Nigel's special tweaks without whom this would never be a reality). Thanks to Bill for hosting.


Don't forget to apply all the latest patches to be able to use this track! You can find them listed HERE.


:applause:

Well said. Thanks to everyone.  :D  
I noticed it said the hi res version hasn't got sound enabled but can be added later. Does this mean the ambient sounds and how can it be added?

Oh, man, I'm going to be up late tonight.

Just saying thanks isn't enough, but I don't know what else to say.  I simply cannot imagine all the hours of work that has been put into this project by Ginetto, Sergio, Richard, Nigel, and I'm sure a bunch more I'm not aware of.  Thank you all.  :)   Keith and Bill, too.   :clap2: :clap2: :clap2: :clap: :clap:    

Ain't GPL a wonderful thing?

cheers,
steve   :wave:

:applause:


Darn cool newspaper too.

Oh dear.  I've been dreading this day.  Goodbye life!

After 4 years of hard work and who knows how many 1,000s of hours everyone involved can rest on your laurels.  You deserve every bit of the praise coming your way.   :thankyou: :bravo: :bigclap:

A landmark in sim racing history!!!!!!!!!!   It has been a huge privilege to beta test this track for Genetto, Sergio, and the team.  And to make friends with all the hard working team members.

It takes awhile to learn the whole track layout. But you will.......   The targa trainer will be a huge help to you in learning this track!

I have to say this.......  Genetto is one a hell of a artist!!!!!!! Along with everyone who contributed art work for this track.

Jay

This is a monumental work of art.  Just finished my first lap. 44.03 The track is very well marked , so there isn't any real need to memorize it.  Just pay attention to the arrows. I drove the 66 P261.  Used my Nurby setup with a few clicks more 6th gear.  Too much, as it turned out.  I spent most of my time in 2nd gear.  That gave me lots of time to enjoy the scenery.  And it is gorgeous!   :bowdown2:

This is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE!!! :clap2:

A true masterpiece! Every day that I play GPL, I have more certain that there's not any simulator that can beat this oldie but goodie sim.

Many thanks for this brilliant job! Congratulations to everybody involved on that project. I was paying attention to the billboard, the scenery, walls. Everything is perfect on this track!


Did my first lap at the track, using Mod 65 and a BT11 - 38:59,998
