The new version can be downloaded via torrent below, coming as a full version – It does not require past versions of the mod to be installed!

As usual, the mod comes with a GT Legends DVD check since many of the mod’s cars are based on the original versions in Simbin’s title. The check also works with Steam versions of the long-running title.

The installation & GT Legends check as well as lots of other helpful information is explained in detail in the inclosed manual that can be found here.
