§ 1 What is GPLRACER
GPLRACER is a GPL Mods Online racing league.
GPL (Grand Prix Legends) is a PC racing simulatation that features historical racing cars.
“Grand Prix Legends (GPL) is one of the best and advanced race simulations for the PC
GPL simulates the Formula 1 Season of 1967, when the cars were still drifting on four
wheels like Rallycars, drivers like Jack Brabham, Jim Clark, Graham Hill and Jochen Rindt
made the spectators hold their breath every time they roared by, and the implemention of
computers into Formula 1 was still years away.

Although GPL has been around since 1998, it’s still mindblowing in the area’s of driving
experience and realism (developer: Papyrus / Publisher: Sierra).
In the retail release these 11 historical tracks are included: Kyalami, Mexico, Monaco,
Monza, Mosport, Nürburgring Nordschleife, Rouen, Silverstone, Spa, Watkins Glen and Zandvoort.
Today, almost 20 years after it’s initial release, GPL still has a big online community, which
continues to release addons and updates which add to the enjoyment of the game. There
are, for instance, over 600 (!) new tracks released for GPL, photorealistic 3D car updates,
original engine sounds taken from recordings of the real engines, an evergrowing number
of Mods for other seasons (1955, 1965, 1966, 1967 F2, 1969, Can-Am 1966, Can-Am 1971, Sportscars 1967, …), as well as numerous programs to make it easier to enjoy GPL. Each and every update is available on the internet without money being charged!“

§ 2 Participation

§ 2.1 Signing up
Every driver has to sign up with his name (usually your real name, i.e. the name you use in GPL) and must have read the GPLRACER rules.
In order to participate you have to submit your personal best time (PB), to make it clear
to the administrators how many servers to use and who to use them.

ATTENTION:
The login on the PB-page has nothing to do with the login to the forum.
You can however use the same name and the same password for the PB-page as for the forum (is recommended).
The PB-pages are here:

Attention:
On raceday you cannot add / change your PB anymore!
Every driver has to start in the Server he has been put in through the PB page.
Switching of Grids (Servers) needs the green light from the Administrators.

The Reko will not alter the PB GRID on a race day due to drivers who were too late to submit a PB. We want to prevent any changes especially in case we have 2 grids. A PB which looks like this “xx:xx.xx” can be deleted from the admins a day before the race to increase the transparency (e.g. if we have two grids). A driver whos “xx:xx.xx” PB time got deleted has to show up in IRC and should inform an admin about his real PB so he can enter Grid 1 or Grid 2.

When you sign up at GPLRACER this will mean that you have read the rules and have accepted those rules.

§ 2.2 Equipment
Every driver has to have an Internet connection. A connection through a 56k-Modem is possible, it is however advised to have a connection of at least 50 Kbit/s of Upload. Ideal would be a 128 Kbit/s Up- and download or more.
Every driver has to have the GPL CD, which can be bought (among others) here:
http://www.mastertronic.com/productSoldOut.asp?pid=225&productLabelID=1
Every driver has to have the GEM+ and iGOR program:
http://gem.ebi-service.de/
In iGOR (interactive GPL Online Racing) you have to add the #GPLRACER chat channel
via Channels —> Add Channel.
We strongly advice to use a steering wheel to race rather than a keyboard.
