Looking up a little history on the Lotus 25&49 I am getting a blonde moment and need a idiots guide plus in laymans terms regarding these two cars.
Basically Wikapaedia says the 25 was a revolutionary design with the first fully stressed monocoque.Whereas the 49 was built around the Cosworth DFV and was the first to feature the engine as a stress member.
Please explain anybody.

Does anyone know were you can find any old usac Indycar radio broadcasts  from the 60s and 70s. It seems the only ones I can find are nascar races.

Ai Siracusa And Brands (+ Lotus Dashboard)

03 Oct 2015

Posted by Bernd Rosemeyer in GPL-65 mod
I prepared a 64 season and now I'm racing all the formula 1 races of the year 1964 in a BT7. I'm using the race option "pro long" (? "Profi lang" in german).

Until now (Brands Hatch) I encountered three problems:

During the races in Brands Hatch and Siracusa the AI seem to change from race to practice mode: They enter the pits during one of the last laps... and return to the track after a short while!

And the third one: My driver.ini contains Clark and Spence in a Lotus 25 (which of cause is the 33). The dashboard of this Lotus went down! As a result there is a black strip between it and the windscreen; and the needles of the instruments are working above their cases.

Are there any updates for the AI? Does anyone know the problem with the Lotus 33 dashboard?

(I'm astonished at the performance of the BT7. I thought it may be a lame duck, but it's much fun driving this car using trail braking with setups allowing controled oversteer: My fastest laps so far (the real fastest laps by different cars in 1964 in parenthesis):
Snetterton 1:31,87 (1:32,8)
Goodwood 1:21,58 (1:21,0)
Siracusa 1:47,66 (1:50,5)
Aintree 1:51,16 (1:52,2)
Silverstone 1:36,30 (1:33,4) !? Much to slow!
Monaco 1:32,32 (1:33,9)
Zandvoort 1:30,97 (1:31,2)
Spa 3:43,59 (3:49,2)
Rouen 2:08,19 (2:09,6)
Brands Hatch 1:38,61 (1:38,1))
