The Story

Cooper T73 project was a scratch build initial test mod, designed directly for GT Legends game by SimBin, to check if is yet possible to create and drive satisfactorily an opewheeler car add-on at historic touring car simulator. All the mod work experience has been transformed into F1 LEGENDS RACING mod (http://f1legends.nolimit.cz). Many people asked if the F1 1964 Copper T73 car will be also released, so we finished it and we are giving the old openwheeler to fans public now 🙂

Although it is a single car add-on, the mod pack also includes few non Cooper manufacturer related skins in different racing team colors. To fake better the full grid F1 1964 race feeling, the team cars use different wheel mesh and engine pipe styles / engine covers, but all the cars use same physics and sound set.

Copy the Gamedata folder to your GTR2 installation folder.
i.e if you have GTR2 installed in x:\GTR2 then copy the gamedata folder to x:\GTR2\, letting it overwrite.

PLR file – make Wheels Visible In Cockpit=”1″

Next you need to edit your <player name>.PLR file.
Player name is the name you use to drive in GTR2 and the file is found in UserData\<player name>\<player name>.PLR – i.e if your GTR2 driver name is Speedy then the file you need to edit is UserData\speedy\speedy.PLR

You need to make sure that this file contains this line, found in the [ Graphic Options ] section :
Wheels Visible In Cockpit=”1″

Tip: Use Notepad to edit the file.

This will tell GTR2 to show the front wheels when in cockpit view, which is of course the only way to drive an F1 mod 😉
If Wheels Visible In Cockpit=”0″ then just change the 0 to 1

Run game and select from menu a “F1 Cooper T73” item…

Up/Down, Forward/Back cockpit adjustment

You may need to adjust the driver position up or down and/or forward or back when changing to different cars.
To achieve this you dont have to search or map any special keys for it, just use mouse:
Push a RIGHT mouse button and with the pushed button move the mouse forwards, backwards, left or right… thats the whole trick 🙂


if you need to reset the cockpit adjustment, you can edit the <player name>.PLR file.
Find Seat Adjustment rows and set it to zero, like this:
Seat Adjustment Aft=”0.00000″
Seat Adjustment Up=”0.00000″

Known F1 Cooper T73 mod issues / bugs

* not optimal animated driver arms and legs at virtual cockpit
* some texture transparency issues

Good luck and Enjoy!
