See http://download.bcsims.com/Targa/Targa_Florio_HQ.wmv

It's a cinematic experience in it's own right ...... the sports cars come at the end !!

The COMPLETE Targia Florio circuit in development for GPL was released.
Add the sportscars add ons that have been developed over the years adn frankly all the "new" sims have just had the bar raised and foudn wanting

Do you play Grand Prix Legends Matra? I have been debating getting it for a while now, just dont want to spend the 400 or 500 on a steering wheel and pedal to make it worth it.

Haven't "played" it for over a year now.
STILL it is a fantastic sim well suited to simpler cars in simpler days.
Doubt it coudl get aero and grip dynamics of a modern car, but that's not what it's about.
In terms of single seaters on normal rubber and little aero was as close to real world FF1600 as it got.
ALL the add-ons make it a worthy inclusion in any PC sim bundle.
This adding of TF jsut makes me

Do. Want. Time to pull the sim chair out of storage and buy a huge flatscreen for it.

I have always played GPL on keyboards, probably that's why making even top 7-8 is so hard there

^^^^^ for sure

It had a bad rep as folks used to "modern" would drop the ride height and stiffen suspension etc. 60s cars didn't like hitting bump stops. Was common to give someone seconds a lap just by adding an inch to ride height
