My name is Erik and I was asked by Yannick to be a reserve driver for his team. It also was a nice oppertunity to start exploring this league.
Whenever I'm not needed as a driver for his team I might also like to join a race as a privateer when that's possible. The rules look quite complex so that will take some time but I can see the fun factor in them.

So far I've been racing GPL online since 2018 with GPLRACER and mostly with the 1965 cars. I started on a Xbox 360 controller, which went quite well, but since july 2018 I have a rig with a wheel and pedals.
My experience mainly is with the 1965, 1969X and 1967X mods. I never drove the original cars much, but I look forward to investing time in them. Because of that I don't have a lot of setups yet and I like to practice a lot, so you might reguraly see me joining the practice server in the evenings. (UTC +2, the Netherlands)

See you all on track!

GREAT   welcone Erik  Yes the rules and explanations can seem a bit complex. But the main thing to remember while on the track is respect for other drivers on the track. We are not a cut throat win at all cost league.  If you have questions please ask

Welcome Erik, Looking forwards to seeing you on track.

I started out with nothing and still have most of it left.

Fast, Cheap, Reliable. Choose any 2.

Look closely at 3 of your closest friends. If they seem OK it's probably you.
