Grand Prix Legends 2020 Demo


Ele está de volta com versão demo

Sabes quem está de volta em 2020??? o velhinho Grand Prix Legends.

Um grupo de aficionados por este simulador pegou nele e está a trabalhar para voltarmos a pegar no volante neste histórico.

Existe uma demo que podes fazer download aqui.

Esta demo trás 10 carros e 4 pistas.

  • Cars

One car was chosen from each of the nine major mods plus one additional car from the original 1967 F1 simulation to demonstrate how far we have come in 22 years. Conveniently, the driver champion in each year drove these cars (with one exception). The cars are:

1955 F1 Mod: Mercedes W196

The 1955 Mercedes W196 simulates brake fade and has a light indicator in the cockpit to show the condition of your brakes. The light is not historically correct, but very helpful.

GREEN light = full brakes
YELLOW light = reduced brakes
RED light = almost no brakes 

If you want a normal dash without any indicator light until you push the brakes too far and get a yellow or red indicator you can use the tempfade.mip. Just go to C:\GPL 2020 Demo\cars\cars18\c00\Optional Brake Fade Light\ and copy the tempfade.mip file into the main c00 cars folder C:\GPL 2020 Demo\cars\cars18\c00\. If you want to go back to the original brake fade light indicator, just delete the tempfade.mip file again from the c00 cars folder C:\GPL 2020 Demo\cars\cars18\c00\.

1965 F1 Mod: Lotus 33/Coventry Climax

1966 F1 Mod: Repco Brabham BT19

1966 Can-Am Mod: Lola T70 Mk2/Chevrolet 358.0 cu in/5.882L

1967 F1 Mod: Repco Brabham BT24

1967 F1 Mod: Lotus 49/Ford Cosworth

1967 F2 Mod: Matra MS5/Ford Cosworth

1967 Sports Cars Mod: Ferrari 330 P4

1969 F1 Mod: Matra MS80/Ford Cosworth

1971 Can-Am Mod: McLaren M8F/Chevrolet 494.9 cu in/8.110L

  • Tracks

Four tracks were chosen for the GPL Demo Championship. The goal was to choose one track from each mod that best represented that mod year or was used for many years over several different mods.
Note: Some tracks include options that you can use. Have a look into the track folders located at C:\GPL 2020 Demo\tracks\.

1) Monza 10k

Country: Italy
Circuit Type: Racetrack
Track Type: Real Track
Track Author: John Basara
Released: September 27, 2004
Turns: 9
Meters: 10000

Track Folder Name: monza10k

The Autodromo Nazionale Monza is a historic race track located near the city of Monza, north of Milan, in Italy. Built in 1922, it is the world’s third purpose-built motor racing circuit after those of Brooklands and Indianapolis. The circuit’s biggest event is the Formula One Italian Grand Prix. With the exception of 1980, the race has been hosted there since the series’s inception.

Built in the Royal Villa of Monza park in a woodland setting, the site has three tracks – the 5.793-kilometre (3.600 mi) Grand Prix track, the 2.405-kilometre (1.494 mi) Junior track, and a 4.250-kilometre (2.641 mi) high speed oval track with steep bankings which has been unused for many decades and is now decaying. The major features of the main Grand Prix track include the Curva Grande, the Curva di Lesmo, the Variante Ascari and the Curva Parabolica. The high speed curve, Curva Grande, is located after the Variante del Rettifilo which is located at the end of the front straight or Rettifilo Tribune, and is usually taken flat out by Formula One cars. The route has been frequently changed since 1922: Some chicanes have been rebuilt over the years with larger run-out zones to meet the demands of modern motorsport. Curves that were once a left-right combination are now taken in reverse order. Already in 1935 the three chicanes Prima Variant/Rettifilo, Variant della Roggia and Variant Ascari known today were set up in the form of tyre stacks in order to slow down the speed of the racing cars. Later, however, the tyre stacks were removed again and used again only in the 1970s, after the track had claimed many lives due to the enormous speeds. In 1954, the two steep bends built in 1922 were rebuilt to be even steeper. The overall course, which was a combination of both tracks, was almost exactly ten kilometers long and was used four times in Formula 1 races (the last time was in 1961). In the meantime the steep curve combination is falling into disrepair.

2) Road America 1971

Road America is a motorsport road course located near Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin on Wisconsin Highway 67, in the United States. It has hosted races since the 1950s and currently hosts races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, NTT IndyCar Series, SCCA Pirelli World Challenge, ASRA, AMA Superbike series, IndyCar Series, and SCCA Pro Racing’s Trans-Am Series.

Road America was designed and built by avid racing enthusiast and highway engineer Clif Tufte, whose sand and gravel company owned the land on which Road America was built. Seed financing came from members of the local community and regional SCCA chapters. The construction of the track began in April 1955. The natural topography of the Kettle Moraine area was utilized for the track, which sweeps over the tops of rolling hills and plunges down through bottom land then up the steep narrow ravine known as Thunder Valley. The track is 4.048 miles in length with 14 turns. Except for recent re-modeling work on Turn 1 that changed it very slightly, the track is the same today as when it was first laid out.

3) Sebring International Raceway 1967

Sebring International Raceway is a road course auto racing facility in the southeastern United States, located near Sebring, Florida.

Sebring (pronounced sea-bring) Raceway is one of the oldest continuously operating race tracks in the U.S., its first race being run in 1950. Sebring is one of the classic race tracks in North American sports car racing and plays host to the 12 Hours of Sebring.

The raceway occupies a portion of Sebring Regional Airport, an active airport for private and commercial traffic that was originally built as Hendricks Army Airfield, a World War II training base for the U.S. Army Air Forces.

The course was held at the end of the 1940s on the former airport grounds of the Hendricks Army Airfield and was modelled on European motorcycle racing courses. The first race took place in 1950, but on an 8.3-kilometre course that used two runways. In 1983 the race took place on a shortened 7.6 kilometer course. From 1984 to 1986 the length was 7.82 kilometers due to conversion work in the pit area. Then the north-south runway was left out and replaced by a new piece of asphalt with the so-called carousel, so that the length shrank to 6.6 kilometers. In 1991, the eight and nine bends and the carousel were removed again. The length was reduced to 5.9 kilometers. At the end of 1995, the Fangio chicane was relocated. This shortened the course to 5.7 kilometers. In 1997 the entry and exit of the Ulmann Straight (in front of the finish curve) were redesigned, which extended the course to 6 kilometers. At the end of 1998 the last rebuilding took place. The hairpin bend (bend 5) was converted into an S bend. In 2001 the surface was renewed from curve 1 to curve 10. At the end of the 1959 Formula 1 season the first Grand Prix of the USA took place here – but it was also the last time that Formula 1 was a guest here.

4) Zandvoort 1967

Circuit Zandvoort (Dutch pronunciation: [sɪrˈkʋi ˈzɑntfoːrt]; known as Circuit Park Zandvoort until 2017) is a motorsport race track located in the dunes north of Zandvoort, Netherlands, near the North Sea coast line.

Between 1952 and 1985, the Formula 1 race track, originally almost 4.2 km long, hosted 30 official World Championship races under the name of the Grand Prix of the Netherlands between 1952 and 1985, with a few interruptions. In 1959 the World Road Championships were held on the circuit. The circuit winds its way through the dunes north of Zandvoort. The original course character consists mainly of fast curves and a hairpin curve after start and finish. The film Grand Prix shows a continuous lap from the driver’s perspective, shot in 1966. Since the track no longer met the safety standards after 1971 – the F1 racing driver Piers Courage had already had an accident here at the GP on 21 June 1970 and was burned in his car – it was rebuilt and only re-included in the Formula 1 calendar in 1973. A new chicane with the name Panorama had been added, but despite the new standards the British driver Roger Williamson died at the GP on 29 July 1973, he also burned in his F1 car. Another chicane was added in 1979. On 20 July 1980, the German Formula 2 racing driver Hans-Georg Bürger also died in an accident here during a race to the Formula 2 European Championship. After 1985 the Formula 1 did not appear any more in Zandvoort. In 1998 the circuit was last rebuilt and extended to its current length of 4.26 km. The track is still used for various racing events such as the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM), the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC), the A1-GP series and some national races.

From 2001 to 2018 the race track was part of the DTM calendar without interruption.

In May 2019, it was announced that Formula 1 would return to Zandvoort from 2020 after a 35-year interruption. The contract is initially dated until 2023, and the date is expected to be set at the beginning of the racing calendar. Characteristic is the roller coaster ride, because it is constantly over hills, but also treacherous hilltops and bumps. Also very special is the permanent dune sand, which is blown by the coastal wind on and over the roadway.
