My system is a bit of a dinosaur (AMD Athlon XP2600, Geforce FX5700VE, 2gb Ram, XP SP3) but seems to run GPL with few issues other than the slideshow on the start line at a few tracks.
The last few weeks has been spent wildy downloading all the mods I was not aware of and reminding myself that you can't plant your right foot into the carpet and expect to still be facing the right direction. I don't know if I'll ever venture online as "Just off the podium" seems to be my standard offline at the tracks I've bothered to actually learn so far. (Is there a crappy drivers online league where the odd indiscretion is acceptable)?
At this point I would like to express my thanks to all the people who have submitted set up files for the various tracks. (I knocked 5 seconds of my best Monza time just by finding someone who apparently drives like I do). As a newbie I'll say this to anyone stumbling across GPL for the 1st time. "Go and get some set up files for your weapon/Track of choice" I was amazed and how it transformed my GPL experience.
So far my favourite mod is the 65 season that's not to in any way meant to diminish the respect for the other mods, I just clicked at the 1st drive with the 65 mod.
Anyway, I'm starting to ramble now. (A very nice Scotch probably has a lot to do with it). So I just wanted to say sincere thanks to everyone who has continued to keep GPL alive and reminding me that in these days of PC eye candy it's the gameplay which is really king and GPL is still up there with the best of them.
ps I may be back to correct any spelling erros as Lagavulin while imparting a feeling of well being does nothing for my spelling prowess.

I've not had a chance to drive GPL for almost a year due to lack of time but tonight I managed it. I'd forgotten just how good it is. I wish it was 1998 again and I could drive it all day long like I was able to when I was younger.
GPL! You've just got to love it
