GPL laptimes history

Or... my little hall of fame :-)

Some milestones in my GPL drivers career:

I collected all the export files I do whenever I beat one or more PB. Now I have some statistics proving that GPL isn't easy if you don't drive very much.

Date Event Link
2004/04/03-04 SRCB Swiss GPL LAN 2004. This time a rather small event with just 7 drivers, but still a lot of fun. B-Bat was the winner. Photos, Results
2003/03/15 SRCB Swiss GPL LAN. The first Swiss GPL LAN party. Lots of fun, close driving in the LAN, meeting many Swiss GPL drivers. Photos
2003/12/31 3rd place at the end of the EOLC Challenge season (last 6 races, all Grids)  
2002/12/29 All cars negative!!!!! Whoohooo. The BRM was missing: An 8:18 at the Ring and better times at Zandvoort and Spa did the trick.
Rank is now -18.840, Monster Rank dropped to -49.960

2002/12/08 EOLC Grand Prix Monaco. The 100 hardest laps in GPL. My first victory from Poleposition, and definitely a good but hard race. EOLC News
2002/11/11 I get my first Challange rank of +71.740. I had to jump over my shadow and finally install a fantasy track: Road67 see GPLRank
2002/10/27 I win my first ever full Grand Prix in Watkins Glen, EOLC Grid B.
108 laps, not one spin or driving error, much luck when I run out of fuel just before the pits at lap 106. The race of my life.
2002/10/13 The EOLC celebrates its 100th event. Hanspi Knutti encourages me to drive. So I drive and win my first ever league race at Kyalami in Grid C :-)  
2002/07/12-14 The Goodwood Festival of Speed 2002. The first time I shake hands with people from my preferred GPL Forum Glenn, Simon, Derrick, Phil Lee, Akin, Sethro, Kostas, Svend, are just some names I remember. The whole Festival of Speed was an absolute highlight!! Check my photos
2002/06/09 The hard work on the Monster rank was it worth: NEGATIVE Monster Rank!! see GPLRank
2002/04/21 Won my first Online Race !!! VROC pickup race at Mosport. Newspaper
