Now I've tried to do the same thing in '67 but even though the number changes in the Gem+ box I am always left with the default view. It feels really constricted and I can't see the pit board properly.
Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can fix this?
Edit: I just found that if I change from using the Historic Mod Dutch GP carset (which I was using before) to the standard 67 carset, the FoV works OK. Now I'm really confused.
Finally after some fiddling I got all working under linux wine with my G27 (forcefeed off).
Messed around with the F1s and had a lot of fun but still not really racing, eventually I decided to do all 11 tracks in the F3 with the full 19 car field intermediate pro. I didn't want to spend time with setups so I downloaded a symetrical base setup for each of the 11 tracks and just went for it. What a blast!!! With the updated graphics on the cars, tracks, then there is the sound, it's superb. Sure it looks a bit dated directly compared to the newer titles like rfactor but the really racing feeling more than makes up for that. The AI is still streets ahead of anything that I have tried. The replay system is still up there with the best (or even better). An entire race saved then exported as html from GPLRA is probaby unequaled in race report detail. As an extra bonus I found that after a little practice I was only 8/10ths away from my F3 personal best at Kyalami so it should not take me long to start bettering my old times then move back up to the F2s and F1s. Then there is the 65s, life is too short.
I guess the AI has been improved too, along with the graphics, sound etc. RFactor is still pretty damn good but for these older formula cars GPL still reigns at the top of the heap.
Hats off to all those who developed and enhanced (and continue to do so) GPL. I could start to mention names but there have been so many. I noticed with sadness that a couple or so are no longer with us.
Nothing new guys, but just wanted to post and give my thoughts and gratitude to you all.

I think we know Nascar Racing 2003 is the real Nascar Sim but how does Nascar heat compare. Also seen loads of mods and add ons for the game so would it be worth a purchase.
Talking of other Nascar games I have just re-installed Nascar Sim Racing 05 by EA Sports.Some mixed reviews,negative and positive. What do you think.(PS: I have Nascar Racing 2003 by Papy installed.
So come on you Nascar and sim Racing fans,I would love to hear all your thoughts please.

There's a particular turn at Assen that is really annoying.
