League: Groundhog Seasons (Groundhog)

Groundhog Seasons  |  Groundhog

Reports by Jani Posta, Roo Mellor.

GBGPL was started by Peter Stenning in 2004 (Aug 8th? 9th?).
It started with two divisions, then it grew to three by the start of Season 2. Races were held on Thursdays, Div1 and Div2 at 8pm, Div3 at 9pm. When mod seasons (65/69) started they were held on Mondays. Plus we had fun three or two races on Saturdays.
Groundhog Series was started as a full Grand Prix series -- one race per month. Over the years the calendars were based on real 1950/55/60/65 calendars. (Race lengths were shortened in the late seasons.)
When Peter left the GPL scene and abandonded GBGPL (due to technical reasons), Jani took over admining the league and hosted the races. After we finished all the opened GBGPL seasons, we started the new seasons as Groundhog Seasons.
The Groundhog name was originated from Groundhog Day movie title, as we play the same year(s) again and again like the movie characters did with groundhog day :)
