the best racing simulation available - bar none!
fantastic recreation of the 1967 Formula 1 season this simulation,
you can't really call it a game, is incredibly difficult but
is definitely worth the effort. Every aspect of the car
set-up can be altered. No GT40s are featured but
all the tracks are the ones that the GT40s raced on and are
worth "driving" around just to get the impression
of what it was all about.

the main exception being the Le Mans Bugatti circuit
which was considered to be a bit of a "Mickey
to a group of talented individuals, the Bugatti circuit has been developed for GPL
and now, the full Le Mans 24 Hour Circuit has also been
released. This track is a fantastic addition to GPL and
is an absolute must for any fan of the Le Mans race. To learn

guys are so creative, there is a possibility of the GT40
appearing in Grand Prix Legends - watch this space!
from the new Le Mans track.
available on budget, Grand Prix Legends is worth the outlay
but, be warned, it's incredibly difficult and if you don't
have a steering wheel, I personally, wouldn't bother.
is a thriving GPL community and many graphic and sound
add-ons can be obtained making this one of the most
customisable games available. Unmissable!

fairly lightweight game in that not much of the vehicle set-up can
be altered. Again no GT40s, it's an up-to-date game, the attraction
is that, if you so wish, you can race the whole 24 Hours as the
race length is adjustable from 12 minutes up to the full length!

24 Hours is a fun game but isn't for the serious PC racer. Apart
from the attraction of racing at Le Mans, there isn't a lot else
to hold the attention. This game could have been so much more...
re-released as a budget game, Sports Car GT doesn't feature a GT40,
concentrating mainly on such cars as the McLaren F1, BMW M3 etc.
However, with a little bit of effort, the GT40, as well as other
1960's sportscars can be imported into the game:
two screenshots of Sports Car GT show the Gulf GT40 created for
the game by Phil Adamson and Stefan Karlsson.
there isn't a proper dash for the GT40 but it is being worked on.
All the tracks included in the game are modern-day, the one above
is Hockenheim. Le Mans is being developed as an add-on and is already
available in beta form although I couldn't get it to work.
a serious simulation then but the cars can be "tweaked" to
make them go faster.
if you fill the grid with the various 1960's
sportscars that are available and then sit down and watch the race
from one of the track-side cameras, it's pretty unforgettable!
