Playing Gpl With A Controller

06 Dec 2016

Hi all! This is my first post on SRMZ.  A few years ago, I played a lot of GPL but I'd never been any good.  A large part of that is probably due to the fact that I used the keyboard.  Anyway, I really want to get back into it, but I do not want to use the keyboard.  I would buy a racing wheel, pedals, etc., but I can't justify spending all that money.  However, I play a lot of Playstation games, so I'm used  to using a controller.  Does anyone know of any good (relatively cheap) controllers that would be compatible with GPL?  I play on an old Dell that runs Windows XP, because it plays GPL pretty smoothly.  (I don't remember the model, but its easily over a decade old; I only use it to play GPL and Flight Simulator 04).  

Any feedback would be great.  I'd love to get back into GPL!  Thanks.

I just found thanks to twitter that Ferrari have on official pages some stats and photos about their cars. It looks nice but it's only in Italian and also i don't found every Ferrari car (500 F2 for example) but in Twitter/Facebook video these cars are so i don't know :D  .

Dead Heats

05 Dec 2016

Posted by Manfred Cubenoggin in GPL-"I just want to talk about all things GPL"
Hi, fellas!  :)

Thought I'd pose the question here at SRMZ as in a GP67 grind yesterday at Estoril with the UKGPL clan, there was a near dead heat finish with but 1/1000s the margin between P3 and P4.  In the images below showing shots from TV1 and TV2, Clive Gardner is in the BRM and I in the Red Ball Special.  Three frames are involved.  Two show the cars two frames from registering the finish of the lap.  Two show the first frame where the lap is shown completed.  Speeds were 165-169mph which for one millisecond translates to just shy of three inches(say 70mm).

Are there actual instances of true dead heats?

The screen shots plus the readout in GPLRA...
