Marco, thanks for all the time dedicated for this.

As I have let say 6500 Period pics of the 1967 Formula 1 cars,  if you plan to update a race by race 67 carset with the existing slots limitation, just ask , and I will be happy to help you
  

Michel


and thousands thanks for your South African GP 1967 .

Using the 66 exe, I see you had no limits to get all the correct cars ( Botha and Charlton  Brabhams, Courage Lotus 33)

Do you use a Brabham to represent the LDS of Sam Tingle ?  

  Did you tweaked a bit the John  Love Cooper to get a look alike T 79 ?

And the car sounds . Do you use the BRM sound for the Courage car, for instance ?

Wow Irridux-this looks fantastic ! Can't wait to get home to try
it out. :clap2:

I know you have tweaked the ai for better simulated historically
correct finishes.I was wondering about the Belgian GP-were you able
to simulate this somehow? :hat-tip:

Thanks again Irridux, one small issue. The season ini contains Monza10k, on the same day as the other Italian GP. Should I just delete it?

I have to say, this looks fantastic, just like the excellent 65 Mod update.

I love historical accuracy, something the GPL Modders do so well, so many thanks for this work. Much appreciated so keep up the great work.  :thumbup:

One question. Do the 65 & 66 Updates affect racing online / create problems online?

Many Thanks

Hi Clutch,
The update doesn't affect the online racing.

Superb.

Hi tooncheesef1,
the Monza10k was included in the original Mod for reppresent the fictional race of the Grand Prix Movie.
Why delete it? It's a nice addon. :rolleyes:

Irridux, G.Spinning and all the people that have been involved over the years with this Mod
have given us a real treasure ! :yeah:  :clap2:

Check out this screenshot-I was actually in the middle of a  race when I noticed that
it looks like Pete Aaron is driving in the Italian GP on the Papy track ! It shows him as
Mike Spence,but at first I thought it was Chris Amon when I saw the helmet.I thought you
might like to know,or maybe its just my install ? :shrug:Attached File  picture001.JPG   113.13K   167 downloads

The Pete Aaron helmet in Grand Prix was actually Chris Amon's.  Since Mike Spence's Lotus 33 was one of the stand ins for Aaron's Yamura during filming of the real races in 1966, Spence wore Amon's helmet.  Confusing isn't it. :)
