    Not sure if P&G is well known around here, so perhaps an introduction to the project is a good idea.

    But, before that, we would like to 'showcase' some of the work in progress for Power&Glory v3:

    "So what is Power&Glory ?"

    Back in 2006, some crazy guys formed a group to get the kind of racing simulation that many dreamed of but that no game-developer ever did, or will ever do, due to legal and logistic constraints with licenses and assets for commercial products.
    There's a heavy background of Papyrus ''Grand Prix Legends' and SimBin 'GT-Legends' within the group, which influenced things immensely. This last mentioned title was perfect as base of resources to materialize an idea into GTR2, the definitive platform of choice for this project.
    This group of people formed a mod-team called 'GTL-Workshop', and the name chosen for the overall project is 'Power and Glory'.

    The idea behind this project is to produce 1960s and 1970s racecars as close as we can to the way they were in their glory days. Not "modern-historic" iterations but the legendary, iconic racers of that period.

    For that, we start by picking GT-Legends cars and modify them top to bottom, nose to tail, inside and outside, more or less depending on the model accuracy, limitations and details (in relation to the old-era counterparts and their variations back then).
    The cars have accurate details placed on individual basis (i.e, they're not repeats with different skins).
    All these cars have completely new physics (based on carefully researched real data and implemented accordingly) and also new sounds (engine, transmission and other vehicle-type sounds and effects) based on recordings of the real cars, along with the extensive 3D and texture modifications faithfull to the smallest detail.

    The Power&Glory mod is for GTR2 but is intended to run separately from it (standalone mod), featuring new User-Interface (or game menus) as such, and even purpose made soundtrack.
    It is to be, as many usually call it, an "expansion" for GTR2, like a separate new game title.

    Power&Glory has its own website: WWW.GTLW.CO.UK

    It also has dedicated forum sections at NoGrip and SRMZ.

    Our third and final release is getting near, with many improvements and, finally, the long awaited 1970's racers, coming with the next version Power&Glory v3.

    Cheers! :)
