1000 € For Nürburgring 24H Winners – First Prize Announcement

The television broadcast deal with SportExtra is fresh of the print as the last details were ironed out yesterday. This means that the first announcement on prizes for the Nürburgring 24H Special Event can now be made.

For the first prize in the SP9 (GT3) category there will be a 1,000 € cash prize.

The winners of SP8T and SP7 will all receive hardware prizes from RIOTORO.

The work continues with various other partners to secure further prizes and coverage.

This also has the effect, that we can lower the entry fee back to the original Early Bird offer until Wednesday next week. This will also be the deadline for skins submission. That means the price is back to 25€ without additional discounts and 5€ with all discounts.

Qualifying – May 22nd 20.00 CEST to 23.00 CEST
Race – May 23rd 14.00 CEST to May 24th 14.00 CEST

As usual, the race will be live broadcast on our own social media channels on Facebook, Twitch, YouTube and Twitter with high-quality English commentary. There will be live marshalling and live race control throughout both Qualifying Friday evening and the race on Saturday through Sunday.

Keep in that the entrance fee is variable depending on your commitment level. We would encourage everyone to share content on this race and if you are participating, use the 15 minutes it takes to write a small article on your team, sponsors, partners, expectations, goals, approach to the race. Really anything you might deem relevant.

There is room for 60 cars in the race. You will find the rules here, and a small addendum is being worked out with a few minor details that are really more informatory than actual rules.

Class or driver changes are open until Wednesday as well. Use [email protected] or the chat options on this page or our Facebook page to notify us of any changes.

Open practice servers are already available in the Factor 2 lobby.

And to get you in the proper Nürburgring 24h mood, we leave you with the promotional video from last years race.

About The Author

Peter Munkholm
When John Nielsen won Le Mans 24-Hours in 1990, Peter was hooked with motorsports. He started sim racing on his uncles PC with Formula One Grand Prix by Geoff Crammond in 1992. Then progressed through IndyCar Simulator and IndyCar Simulator 2 on his Amiga 500+. When he bought his own PC in 1994 and a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro Joystick he was already deeply in love with sim racing. His first skirmish with light modding was a Pernod Anis blue, white, and red skin for IndyCar Racing 2. He was hooked! But sim racing really kicked off for Peter with Sports Car GT in 1999. And with internet access and what felt like an ocean of mods. Sports Car GT and the F1 simulators with endurance racing mods swallowed most of his spare time. Then the GTR mod for F1 2003 arrived on the scene, from some Swedish dudes who called themselves SIMBIN. That would change everything! Right about then was also when Logitech steering wheels reach a state of useful. So when the GTR game officially released Peter bought a Formula Force GP wheel the same day, went home and founded the Danish Grand Touring League (DGTL). In 2006 the first LAN event was held. This became GTR24H in 2007. As they say. The rest is history!
