Hey GPLers :)

Since the demise of RSC there is no trace left of the 2008 GPL World Cup on the internet. I managed to get a few results back via waybackmachine and I have a few replays as well. But all in all not much.

I'd be willing to host all the available data for posterity on my ftp : race results, replays, videos, screenshots, whatever. So if any of you still has some replays or gplrapages or anything even remotely connected to the 2008 WC please get in touch !

Cheers !

Salut Frank / hello Ghost Dog. :)

I did an article (in 4 parts) one year ago :

http://www.grandprix...-retro-27102012

http://www.grandprix...rtie-2-30102012

http://www.grandprix...rtie-3-31102012

You can use it to make an english version somewhere if you want.

All the replays will be available again before the end of the year. ;)

It certainly would be fun to watch some videos made from the replays but currently I don't have the time to do it.

I was just thinking about how we had the 1967 40th Anniversary World Championship, along with the 2008 GPLWC when I came online. Given that it's now 2014, and we are now only having league running (pickups still happened when these championships were on), I was thinking that it would be very apt to have a 50th anniversary championship! Also, did we have anything for 15 years of GPL in 2013? We could always commemorate 20 years of GPL with another world cup, maybe with a smaller number of teams (16) or roughly by continent (8) with full server races to find a winning team...

PS. Hi Frank! Long time.. :thankyou:  for the original idea of the World Cup! I agree that we should have some records of the GPLWC; if we could mirror the site that would be great. I really liked Runar's layout and how he did everything :wizard:

Also, reading the review, it makes a mention of a 2004 competition? I didn't know about that! Finland beats France again it says.
