Hello!

I'm not sure how many people would be in to something like this, but I figured I'd mention it once in the forums here. I'm currently beginning a sort of "lets play" series for GPL. I'm doing a career from 1965 to 1969 and recording it along the way with commentary while I'm racing (not easy to do!). I hope to do all of the championship and non-championship races, and hopefully it is entertaining to watch as I battle to hopefully become world champion!

I have already finished the first episode, it has a few rough parts, but I hope to correct them in the videos to come. If you're interested let me know what I can do to improve the videos. I hope many people get to see just how awesome GPL is!



Thanks!

I'm thinking he picked short pro, because he's trying to keep it real, and the motor blew.

Thanks for the kind words!

I did pick short race length, and the most difficult setting for driving. Unforuntatley it looks like I had a piston failure which caused the breakdown. Lets hope that doesn't happen again!

Nothing specific causes that correct?

I'm sorry, I don't think I understand what you mean.

I am following the 1965 championship calendar, East London was the first GP on January 1st 1965.

You can cause it by overreving the motor on upshifts and downshifts. I didn't notice if you did that.
