In September 2005, one friend of us left suddenly for a world described as a better one. He was only 40 years old.
Jean Pierre , alias “Jops”, was the founder and administrator of the Grand Prix Legends simracing league “F1legends.ch”. He was also a fantastic simracer, with a GPLrank of -83.
His death has let all of his friends in confusion , and I don’t say anything about the disaster for his family.
In 2006, we decided within the F1legends team to create a track in memory of Jops. Some months later has follow the track “Jops / Grand Prix de la Neuveville”. It was at that time very good welcome by the simracing community, due to its special atmosphere and its wonderful textures from “Jackseller”.
Almost three years after his death, we didn’t forget our friend Jops .
So, we decided to adapt the GPL track to Rfactor, GTL and GTR2, giving the possibility to the simracers to use all the new features (mods, rain, night, pilot changes , …). Our goal was to keep alive its special atmosphere, and not to do only a simple conversion. Beyond the graphical aspects of the track, please don’t forget to salute our friend on the right at the pit exit.
I would like here point out the strong contribution from Neel Jani regarding the graphical optimization of the Rfactor track. In order to congratulate him for his help during the project, we gave him the rights and ask him to release the versions for GTR2 and GTL, with in mind the same orientation. These two versions should be released by Neel Jani some days after the Rfactor track.
Please don’t modify or use some part of these three versions of the track without asking the authorization from the owners, just to keep intact the initial goal of this project.
I would also like to thank Thierry81 for his work on the AIW+ Flagmarshalls, and Luigi for his work on the replay cameras.
Special thanks to Jackseller and Momo, my dear friends, and to all the pilots of F1legends, Racingfr and LFGPL. And Of course, all my best regards to the family of Jops
