Great read Bo, thanks for sharing.


Gpl Rank Oao Division And Season Details

25 January 2018 - 06:47 PM

Hi All,
I have set up entries in GPL rank for the upcoming season 21 for oAo in the "Leagues" section.


There are a few drivers who i cannot find an ID for on GPLrank.

So. . .
If Tom Oud, Mick Claridge, Gabriele Maruca or George Cheeseman are reading this can you PM me with your GPLrank user ID. (If you have one and want to be included).

I had to make a best guess with a few drivers as they have more than 1 ID listed so if the rank displayed against your name is not your Rank can you point me at the correct ID so I can update it.

Finally if for some reason anyone doesn't want there ID associated with the please let me know and I'll remove it.

Thanks guys.


ps... Don't forget you can also find race reports on oAo races at (Maintained by Michi and Robert F).

55 Mod Set Up Confusion.

24 December 2017 - 09:19 AM

Hi All,
I'm not sure if I missed an update somewhere down the line but I'm having an issue with the 55 set up's.

From GEM I cannot see any 55 set up's I have created. All I see is the default set up in the drop down list.

Once I open GPL set up manager I can change from the default to my set ups and edit/save them as normal. (GPLSM V2.6.1)

Return back to GEM and they are still not available.

Starting a GPL session (Off line & On Line) I can see my new/edited set ups and use them, adjust them, save them etc as normal.

Return back to GEM and they are no longer visible in the drop down list. (But I can navigate to them in set up manager as above).

All other mods appear to work ok in this respect. I can scroll through my drivers and mod, car set car etc all change automatically reflecting the state where I left them (Including available set ups) as expected but when I reach my 1955 driver I'm back to the default set up only.

So while not a show stopper I'm at a loss to understand exactly what is happening...

Any help gratefully received as always...

Merry Christmas everyone.


Suggestion For Extra Coins Or Points Available During The Season

19 November 2017 - 09:03 AM

Hi All, I'm sure we all know about the "Ribbon" categories.

I would like to make a suggestion to extend some of them on to a race by race basis. I don't think "Poles", "Fastest Laps" or "Laps Lead" should be included in this suggestion as the drivers posting most of those don't need extra coins or points. But possibly "Laps Completed" (Pepe did rather well this season) and definitely "Most Consistent" & "Highest Climber" would be good for the league as they can only be achieved by good driving

I'm undecided as to whether It should be points awarded or coins. I can see advantages either way. I think it should only count for drivers still running at the end and having completed 75% of race distance (As with the existing Coins per race).

So, Just a basic idea with plenty of scope for interpretation.

I wouldn't like this to replace the existing season end awards but think it could run alongside the existing process.

Well, not very often I get to start a D1 topic..

Collided with Ed at T1, went backwards into the barrier (Not very fast) but GPL decided it was worth losing a wheel.

So lots of practice for a 400yd drive. :(

Hopefully my D2 efforts will provide a bit more entertainment.
