This is the home page of UKGPL, a United Kingdom based online racing league for fans of Grand Prix Legends.
Registration for Season 43 is OPEN!
This season we will be running the original 1967 F1 cars, the 1955 GP machines and an open wheel single seat championship featuring the 1965, 1966 and 1968 F1 cars. We will also be running the 1971 Can-Am cars.
An overview of Season 43 is available in
The league is still going strong despite the advent of dozens of new sims. Grand Prix Legends models some of the best cars from the fifties, sixties and early seventies and does it exceptionally well. Despite having been around since 1998, Grand Prix Legends still attracts a loyal following and UKGPL offers the opportunity to race open wheel cars from the original 1967 season and cars from the 1955, 1965, 1966, 1968 and 1969 seasons. The 67 Sports Cars, 66 Can-Ams and 71 Can-Ams provide an additional challenge.
UKGPL is founded around our 1967 format championship which represents the pinnacle of achievement and this season we will be running two divisions for the 1967 F1 cars. UKGPL will also run championships for the 1955 GP, Mixed Open Wheel (1965, 1966 and 1968 F1 cars) and the 1971 Can-Am cars. Our aim is simply to have some fun racing the 50s and 60s machines.
We are now an international league having drivers from many countries. A summary of our rules are available in
German. Our 1967 F1 championship will again be a joint venture with GPL Brazil. We will be using the UKGPL token system for the 1967 F1 "Works" and "Privateer" races with the tracks chosen by UKGPL.
There is something to suit everyone, both newcomers to online racing and those more experienced, so join our forum introduce yourself and enjoy the racing.
