him out as I'm sure it'll be topnotch as is the way Sergio does things! Excellent short write up thanking everyone involved and some history too!
So many thanks to you Sergio for your work in the past and in the future and of course for Porto - Circuito da Boavista - 1958 .
So time for a morning cup of Java and a tour of Porto.
These arrows showing turn ahead are helpful and the tarmac is greased lightning for me! So I'm looking forward to many hours of fun trying to tame this course!

Firmly a favorite of mine already
I can't really string more than a couple of laps together without crashing at the moment, I keep putting it in the straw bails in the esses section, but boy is it a blast!

You are great!

I remember seeing the early versions and thinking there was an enormous amount of work to do to bring the track to life. I know for Robert's part it has been sheer dedication to this great track.

This is my first post but I'm a GPL fan for a long time now.
I live in the "Porto-58-Circuito da Boavista" area and I drive on the actual roads every day, it's not very different today.
I want to congratulate the producer for the excelent job.
I want to inform that this July-2005 it will happen the re-edition of the "Porto-Circuito da Boavista" track, it will be a major sport event here in Porto-Portugal.
Here's the link:
Is there anyone who wants to make a race in this track one of these days? Send an email please. email@example.com (messenger also). I drove the Ferrari 312 for months but now changed to Eagle.
