    XP, that's probably why I can still run it.

    It might, I don't drive it hard enough, in the saved replays there are guys just whipping the cars fishtailing all over the track, but maintaining control and fast!

    I'm exactly the same, i don't like it feeling all hung out like that, but I am getting better at letting it go a little, it does seem to make your lap times drop...

    I have GPL too,I also run it on XP compatibility mode on my old Vista system
    I have most of the mods but I like the Can Am 66 & Can Am 71,
    I don't remember how long I have had it , but at least 6 years. Bought it online for under $10.
    Started running it again a short time ago after not using it for a few years, tough still to get good times
    Last ran the Can Am 1966 Mod at Riverside

    AndyP did you run that newer "old" version of Riverside, the one without the dogleg before Turn 9?

    It was a very tough track in real life, that's why they made the changes, it was also very dangerous

    Late as all hell to the party here, but I definitely have GPL on my system :) I don't fire it up as much as I should, but I still have a good time driving on it.

    Currently, I have the following mods for it.

    Can-Am 66
    Can-Am 71
    F2
    GT
    1965
    1966
    1967

    I mainly go for the GT sports cars.

    I don't have GPL, but I recently came across some videos of it and thought it looked like it would be fun to try. Does anyone know if it will run in Windows10? I googled it and haven't come across any threads explaining how to set up in Win10....
    Also, I came across a site that has a free download and installer. (actually it is GPL HD - not for sure what the HD means, high def?)
    http://www.oldpcgaming.net/grand-prix-legends-review/
    Any help / advice on whether or not I should give this download link a try would be appreciated.

    There's an installer for it with most GPL sites. I run it on Windows 10 and it runs awesome.

    I've got GPL and just finished up a season with the 65 mod at Mybroga. Next week, we're at Mexico for a fun run with the 67x mod and I am looking forward to running the Eagle T1F and was hoping to use my setup, but SpeedGeezers is telling me I don't have permission to d/l it... :-(

    Is anybody here a member of SpeedGeezers? If so, could you please d/l and post or PM me my setup?! :)

    http://forums.speedgeezers.net/index.php?showtopic=37628

    Also, if you want to run on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, Mybroga is a good place to race and I can put in a good word for you (DbaD though). ;-/

    Thank you!

    I guess I did sign up over there at one time, but I don't see the download you're talking about. I probably don't have permission either since I have zero posts over there.
