Hi, I see that tracks are being pencilled in for 2021. Please note that Dijon 81 is better than Dijon 73, with an extra section in it. :)

What got my attention was

Le Mans Sarthe(night) FULL DISTANCE.

I think if I said:
Monaco or Nurburgring - full GP, I would be on a real evil streak.

Every year Ringnacht exists out of 7 races of 3 laps, followed by a full GP (15 laps at the Nordschleife).  :D

I am always in for a full  2 hour Nürburgring GP. Not so sure about Monaco though :o

I was always disappointed that they didn't do the full extension as originally planned at Dijon.

Good times for GPL tracks - lets see what 2021 has in store for us :)

Missed Ringnacht this year - I hope to make it again in future!

7 races and it always comes down to 1-2 positions at the end - with an attempt at a full GP to follow!

A large update for Dundrod has just been released and lets face it , its everybodys favorite track anyway so lets bring it in for 2021...:)

We brought Dundrod into our HIES calendar so no worries.

It kills me almost every race but a whole year without it is not an option. ;)

We ran Dundrod in October 2016.  Four of 32 cars finished, two in each division. Not having it on the schedule is always an option with me. :)

The 37 miles Isle of Man could be worst :D

Haha , 4 out of 32 huh? Yeah , that sounds like Dundrod...

I would suggest that its worse than IoM as well in terms of the layout. The only place more crazy is probably Sachsenring which is total insanity.

The problem with Dundrod is even a minor off can send you through fences, hedges etc which slow your progress, but leave you with solid objects between you and the track forcing you to track back the way you came to rejoin, which in GPL's eyes is seen as reversing on track and you get DQ'd.

I love the track but it's so infuriating under race conditions. :( Yes I know don't go off track. ;) Less than achievable in my case so far.

Only driven a few laps around Targa. An absolute masterpiece of a track though not very suited for the 67s. And still a lot slower on avg around the corners. The avg speed around Drundrod is fairly high to say the least and consequences are accordingly severe for mistakes. So I would say still way worse than Targa as well. Deers leap is a unique experience and nailing it at max speed is truly something else. Miss it and its race over usually..

Just a fantastic drive.

No worries, we got 7 weeks in the summer for Targa and IoM. I'm thinking Thundercars for this year
I just wanna race
