After years of us talking about it, we've finally taken the dive back to 1967 and the not-quite-F1 World championship!
We'll be using the GPL67 carset for this, but only the 3l cars - so no Lotus 33 or Matra sadly.

Cars available - GPL67.
Available here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/o719sdx2kohk668/AC%20GPL67%20V2.20.rar?dl=0
Drivers must choose their car prior to the season start and then stick with it - please use this thread to state your choice so I can set the server accordingly.

I would like/prefer to field an accurate proportion of cars for this season if possible, although if that seems very unlikely then I'll drop that intention.
Number of cars available if we can stick to the season entries would be as follows:

Lotus = 2 cars
Brabham = 2 cars
BRM = 2 cars (who's brave enough to join me? Grin )
Cooper = 5 cars
Eagle = 2 cars
Ferrari = 3 cars
Honda = 1 car
McLaren = 1x M2b + 1x M5a (the M2b is SLOW - so will not be available in this series)

There will be some BoP'ing based on series run elsewhere, It's not perfect but prevents the series panning out the way that 1967 would have had Lotus not started out with the BRM timed explosive instead of a DFV....

BoP will be as follows:

Lotus & Eagle = 40Kgs
Ferrari           = 30Kgs

There will be no success ballast.


Track listing is as follows, although the exact version/layout is to be announced in a few instances dependant on testing prior to the season kicking off.

 1. Sandown              - https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/sandown-raceway.18702/
 2. Interlagos '75        - https://www.mediafire.com/file/rzf85unu4fmweq0/interlagos_1975.zip/file
 3. Watkins Glen         - https://sellfy.com/f3classictracks/p/watkins-glen-for-assetto-corsa/
 4. Pinewood             - https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/pinewood.29825/
 5. Salzburgring         - https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/salzburgring.2798/
 6. Fonteny               - https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/fonteny.30137/
 7. Hockenheim GP     - https://sellfy.com/f3classictracks/p/fqKN/
 8. Goodwood            - https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/goodwood-circuit.17228/
 9. Monza '66            - Stock Kunos
10. Kyalami               - http://www.mediafire.com/file/alyx6l5jyhd7qed/kyalami1967.rar/file

We will be taking a leaf out of UKGPL's book for the running of this series, so damage and points scoring are as follows:

Approx 50 minute races (distance will be in laps)
100% damage
100% fuel use
0% Tire wear (This is actually far more accurate than the mods' built in wear rate and 'fixes' the BRM)

Drivers must complete 50% of each race to score.
As per the 1967 F1 scoring system, each driver will discard their worst 2 scores when the points are calculated at the end of the season (Done for you in LM2)

More updates will occur to this thread (Including start date) over the next few days as I find time!

I think I drove the Eagle last time and it was nice. So put me down for one of the Eagles for now.

Tim, can you post a link to the version of Sandown we'll be using so I can try the car/track combo?

Is the car(s) a mod or is this one of the ones you get with the game? If it's a mod, do you have a download link to it?

I tried this out yesterday and wondered if it would be the version you had planned. Unfortunately I'm getting big fps drops in several places around the track (30 vs my usual 90+) and generally the visuals are awful with aliasing of power lines, blurring of track boundary lines and shadow crawls on the barriers. Looks like a bad GTR2 conversion which is a shame because I always liked the track in GTR2  Sad

I've added that now too - needed to find the link...


GT, are you sure the FPS drops aren't anything else? I've had this for years with no issues, even on the old rig.
(don't remember the gfx being that bad either)

I've added the full installation instructions for those who don't have the mod, and also updated the grid, currently everyone has their 1st choice.
Hopefully we can fill that grid as opposed to gaining a further 10 Ferrari's or something Grin
