    My God ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Astonishing piece of work.

    Havn’t fired up GPL in a long time, but I think I’ll to try and do a lap of this amazing looking track :ooo:

  • kuato

    Amazing.

    Just thinking of the unbelievable amount of work it must have been to make this track makes my head explode.

  • hypertek

    i seriously hope that one day, these die hard GPL guys will consider trying a newer sim and bring their nostalgic racing era over.. GPL is good, but they basically modded it soo much, its hard for a new comer to get into it.

    the Rise of GPL

  • Uff

    The video almost made me cry! Well, almost! :happy:
    Seriously, I’ve just reinstalled GPL only for this track: now I have to find proper upgrades and then I’m done. ^^

  • hompe

    Time to install the oldie gpl once more

  • eddiespag

    What an incredible preview video of this amazing work of this immensely important track of grand historical proportions. You can almost feel the summer heat from the mountains of Sicily near Palermo. I especially love the vintage footage at the end. Be sure to watch the deleted scenes vintage footage that hit the editing floor as well. Hopefully someone or team is making a scratch one for rfactor too. Conversions are o.k. but nothing like an original, as proven by this one specificaly made for GPL. It may very well turn out to be it’s crown jewel.

  • Siggs

    Incredible…. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Well that is awesome simply awesome
    What a stunning atmospheric preview,I have GPL but only for the other sim GPL mods and have never bothered to play it other than once,but now I’m smitten and cant wait,well done team,new life as been born :sd:

  • Mad Man

    nice looking track
    can somone plz give me a link to this mod if it is out it looks like great fun, this + those cars would make me reinstall GPL

  • Coppola

    Will this be converted to rFactor? I’m thinking, logically, yes, but just to be sure…

  • Paul Kelly

    That preview video is ASTONISHING. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    This is stunning work. Probably the most impressive track I’ve ever seen built for a PC sim.

    Take care,
    PK

  • senicegy

    That looks awsome.
    1 question,its a track for Grand Prix Legends,but wat are these prototypes in the pics,these sportcars?
    Is that a mod for Grand Prix Legends?
    Cheers.

    72 kilometres…….still trying to get my head around that ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  • ericcwatts

    Release Date? Conversion to GTR2? Why was such an important track made for an old sim like GPL? I don’t have GPL and can’t find a place to get it or download the full version anywhere on the internet. Is someone out there going to convert this to an updated sim such as GTR2? ๐Ÿ™

  • http://simscreens.blogspot.com 6e66o

    You can get the free updated 2004 GPL Demo here:
    http://www.bhmotorsports.com/GPL/downloads/3239
    (Asuming the track will work with the demo, not sure though)

    This track fits perfectly into GPL,
    and the community is very much alive.

    But yes,
    i too hope the track will be allowed to be converted to Gmotor Sims.

  • goose08

    hey everybody , you can get GPL here http://www.abandonware-utopia.com/abandonware-telecharger-818.htm
    GPL isn’t edited frome a long time , which make it’s allowed to download the game , thurtheremore , in this download , all updates are include ( sorry for my english )

  • xilix

    OK listen up you youngins. Everything you need for GPL is on these links I’m about to post here. Read up a bit and install GPL with the GPL installer or you’ll never get any of the mods working. Here is the page for the GPL installer, which is absolutely essential for anyone who doesn’t know how to install and update/patch GPL. It’s not that hard to get into this sim, you just have to know where to go for resources.

    http://gplps.org/wb/pages/projects/gpl-installer.php

    Tons of GPL links and info…

    http://gpltd.bcsims.com/?ir=Links

    And also, a nice little google search I compiled for people who want to search open web servers for GPL files, though you can use this method to search for anything…

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&num=100&q=%22GPL%22+last+modified+rar+%22index+of%22+-html+-htm+-php+-asp&btnG=Search

    Have fun messing with the search terms on that, I always run across something exciting when searching with the -html -php ect. ect….

    And never forget, GPL started it all. Yeah, there are newer sims, and this track is definitely worthy of being ported to them, but given my experience in the GPL community, I can tell you right now: don’t count on it. GPL is STILL an amazing simulation today and I’ll always love firing up those beasts and marveling at how men drove these death traps as if they had one day left to live. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Cheers to the most legendary simulation of all time! GPL FOREVER!!!

  • ericcwatts

    GPL installer is for people who already have GPL on a CD. I have never owned GPL. This does not really help. And the link given by goose08 does not have a download button, or if there is one I can’t find it because it is in French. Anyone out there have a definite link to a clean fully updated install of GPL? It would be nice to have GPL when this Targa Florio track is released so I can drive it since it looks like it will not be converted to GTR2 anytime soon. Release date anyone on this? Thanks.

  • xilix

    I really don’t think it’s legal to download GPL regardless of how old it is. It is on that page, though. You just have to find the right link.

    Furthermore, it’s 10 bucks. And it IS for sale. It’s not hard to find a copy.

    Also, do you really need to have GPL updated FOR you? I mean c’mon, it’s not brain surgery dude. It’s simple. The information in the links I gave basically does everything short of holding your hand.

  • goose08

    hye “ericcwatts” in my link you need to register in the site in order to can donwload this must have; for the question of the legality , i think it is and it’s explain ( in french …) in my link , but eveybody takes his responsability ; the most important , enjoy this beautifull game !

  • logos

    @ericcwatts

    SoldOut Software has rereleased GPL. You can buy it here: http://www.mastertronic.com/productSoldOut.asp?pid=225&productLabelID=1
    There are some other bargains as Richard Burns Rally, too. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Tayvl

    Why is there no mention of this mod at drivingitalia.net? Are they still working on it?

  • Gerdrivers

    Hello, I must first commend the tremendous work that is sent with this circuit ๐Ÿ˜‰ This spectacular images, but I want to know if anyone’s going to make the RFactor :question: Please! GPL does not me on my PC, not that happens I can not play ๐Ÿ™ :sad2: , I can only use a full RFactor … I hope that after the launch to become GPL! Greetings! German of Argentina.
