I also have provided GPL servers for several leagues.  If any of the drivers in those leagues see this, and wish to donate, I'd appreciate it.  Thanks!


Replays - Use to compare yourself against, or give any suggestions you have.
My current PB's   F1: (Per Track)   (All cars)       F2:(per track)  (all cars)     F3: (per track)   (all cars)

Virtual Racers Online Connection(VROC) - THE place to find some great racing against other carbon-units.

Home of the Hotshoes - How do you rank in GPL among all the drivers in the world?

GPLRank - Can't compete with the hotshoe 'aliens'?  Here's a comparison for us mere mortals...  I'm at  -0.098(seconds) versus the default lap times...
 

GPL Programs - for both add-on and original tracks

Ultimate Links Page (Hans van Dam) - probably 99% of anything you need.  Impressive!

Tips and Techniques

Lights Out Racing - Track Guides, Driving Tactics, etc.

Ricardo Nunnini - He has a slightly quirky sense of humor, but there's a lot of good info there...

Malcolm Edeson (Maxx on r.a.s.) - A former Jim Russell driving school instructor, Malcolm offers help to struggling drivers.  Here are 2 zipfiles: the first is his 'tutorial' package, the second is example laps using the 'default' setups.  Thanks, Malcolm!
