Never was a huge fan of Imola myself. Wonder would they consider going back to Kyalami in South Africa?

Kyalami circuit 1967 - present.

1967 - 1985 (4.104km):



1988 - 1991 (3.888km):



1992 (4.261km):



Present (4.2606km):



Very slight change between 1992 to present.

That makes sense I was thinking of the original track which I play when playing GP legends.

Sky F1 is not available on UPC. You'll have to watch it on Setanta.

GPL is amazing. Worth buying for the engine sounds alone.

1957 - 1978 Spa Francorchamps circuit is my favourite on GPL.



All the circuits on GPL:

Kyalami Mexico City Monaco Monza Mosport Nurburgring Rouen

Silverstone Watkins Glen Zandvoort

^ Indian GP track. There sure are similarities between that track and the one at Kyalami.

Great game, although I could never quite master it! You really have to put in plenty of practise to be good at it, just like the real thing I guess.

Anyone ever play Grand Prix 2? A great game in its original state, but when you start modding it with different circuits, car sets and various other patches it becomes a wet dream.

I loved GPL when I was younger but havent played it in ages. I really think it was one of the first simulators that I played that you really needed a wheel to get the most out of it. It was really tricky and dead easy to spin if you lost concentration for even a second. Add having the old Spa, the 'ring, Watkins Glen and a host of classic tracks and you have to wonder why no other game like that has been around in so long.
