What is Grand Prix Legends (GPL)?


Grand Prix Legends (GPL) is one of the best and most challenging racing simulations for the PC. GPL simulates the 1967 Formula 1 season, when racing cars were still drifting through corners like four-wheeled rally cars, when drivers like Jack Brabham, Jim Clark, Graham Hill and Jochen Rindt kept spectators on their toes, and when the use of computers in Formula 1 was still a long way off.

Although GPL was published in 1998, it still sets standards in the field of driving physics and realism after more than 20 years (Developer: Papyrus, Publisher: Sierra). In 1998 GPL included eleven historic race tracks: Kyalami, Mexico, Monaco, Monza, Mosport, Nürburgring Nordschleife, Rouen, Silverstone, Spa, Watkins Glen and Zandvoort. GPL still has a loyal worldwide fan community that is constantly improving this great simulation through a variety of addons and updates. Today there are for example over 600 (!) new tracks, photorealistic 3D car updates, original engine sounds of historic racing cars, a growing number of mods of other seasons (1955, 1965, 1966, 1967 F2, 1969, Can-Am 1966, Can-Am 1971, Sportscars 1967, ...), as well as a multitude of other updates and programs that make GPL unique. All updates are available free of charge via the Internet.

Grand Prix Legends also runs on modern PC systems such as Windows 10 (64-bit) and Linux.


A further highlight are online races with up to 20 riders using the

iGOR (interactive GPL Online Racing) for GPL Mods & original GPL 1967

and

WinVROC (Virtual Racers' Online Connection) for original GPL 1967
