Yesterday we held the final Race Weekend of our GPL Throwback Championship.

The championship ran alternately lasts from September 2020 until now and we raced on the same 11 different iconic tracks:

  • Kyalami 1967
  • Monaco 1966
  • Zandvoort 1967
  • Spa 1966
  • Rouen 60s
  • Silverstone 1967
  • Nürburgring 1967
  • Mosport
  • Monza 1966
  • Watkins Glen 1967
  • Mexico 1967

57 different drivers took part in the championship.
We had an average of 19 cars on the track and the biggest starting grid was in Monza with 28 vehicles.
19 different drivers managed to finish on the podium and 6 drivers were able to claim a victory.

We streamed every race at Youtube and we have all experienced a lot of great motorsport.

Racing the GPL Mod regularly against very well known drivers was the motivating force behind the foundation of THR.

That's why I'm very happy about the popularity of the GPL Championship.

I want to thank every participant.
It was a pleasure to have you all on track !!!

But now it's time to celebrate the winners:

Mac, pitman and Nat in Lesmo One in Monza
Please take in account, that the incidents from the races at Mexico are not decided yet.

After the race, we spun the wheel of fortune to determine the winner of the THR championship prize.

And again the wheel of fortune stopped at the Champions field.

Mac therefore receives a product from our THR Shop in the next days.



Live stream from race ONE and TWO:

The track in Watkins Glen, which was recreated historically correct by Sergio Loro, is relatively narrow and the high curbs increase the level of difficulty for a race with the GPL cars.

But on Sunday, two exciting races developed.

And Nat Stevenson had a nearly perfect race weekend.
After qualifying P2, he quickly moved to the front of the field and dominated the pace.

Thanks again Sergio for bringing the track back to (AC) life.

Before the race in Mosport [THR] installed a Race Control group, which immediately had a lot of work after the first race weekend.

The members of the Race Control group spent a lot of time evaluating the open incidents and deciding on penalties.

At this point I would like to thank them for the many hours invested!

Hopefully the work of Race Control will help us to have even better races!

Nordschleife in Germany >>> Mosport in Canada

I had to get from Germany to Canada within a week.
Unfortunately, my boss didn't give me enough money to fly over.

Instead, I had to travel by ship.

On the ship I unfortunately had no possibility to telegraph my report, therefore I can publish the Racereport not earlier than today.

In the last week there were some daring drivers who faced the longest and most dangerous race track of this year's championship.

After 80 minutes of qualifying, the spectators saw two phenomenal races.
There were many remarkable duels. For example, a group of 6 drivers fought each other for a full lap.

In the end, serial winner Mac Sheperd won both races and Vesa Tolonen finished twice on the podium.
Also making the podium were Nat Stevenson and Anthony M Petro, who accomplished this in his first race at THR.

18 GPL-Racers fought for victory in Silverstone last Sunday.

In Qualifying many racers were in a really good shape and raced as fast as the cars can be. The lap times were quite balanced.

At the start of both races the spectators again experienced starting accidents, which have become common for our races in the last weeks.

Due to the accidents, some drivers had to catch up in order to gain valuable points for the championship.

In the end, the audience was thrilled by the action they experienced on the track.

Both the track and Mac knew no mercy in Rouen.

The narrow track and the high curbs penalized every mistake immediately.
Only Mac did not allow herself to be distracted by this and was able to win both races again.

Not only the tourists had to decide between sunny beach and action on the race track in Zandvoort.

Since only 13 drivers took part in yesterday's races, it can be assumed that some of the remaining drivers also stayed on the beach.

Nevertheless, the brave 13 fought for the points for the GPL championship.
