With the winter break finally over and done with, GTR24H is getting ready for the upcoming Endurance eRacing World Championship season, which will take place over six exciting rounds at some of the most iconic race circuits from across the globe.

Positive developments outside of GTR24H has the unfortunate effect of forcing us to update the 2022 EEWC calendar, as the first round of the new campaign, the 12 Hours of Matsusaka, will not take place between January 27th and 30th as originally planned.

The first round will now take place between February 24th and 27th, which now pushes the fourth round, the 12 Hours of Interlagos to late July (21st – 24th).

Here is the revised calendar in full, which will see all four classes (DPi, LMP2, GTE and GT3) battle all the way through to see who will be crowned our 2022 season champions:

Additional Changes

Along with the calendar amendment, work is undergoing on securing a significant six-figure prize fund up for grabs for the 2022 season, which will hopefully give more excitement for all the teams, drivers and their followers to the experience, right up to the Le Mans season finale. We can promise an innovative distribution model for this potential prize pool. All teams will have opportunities to increase their share by taking part in activities both on and off the track.

All live coverage will once again be supported by Motorvision.TV and ESTV, which includes over 25 streaming platforms. There are also many exciting new developments for the broadcasting schedule of the EEWC for this year, which are set to be announced in the very near future. And of cause, for easy access to our teams, the content will be available on GTR24H channels as well.

This reveals just a little bit of the reason for the silence from us during the winter break. Behind the scenes, management is ablaze with tasks, working on details of all the deals that are closing right now. But there is, even more, to come for the fans of the participating teams as well, with brand new interactive initiatives. We will be doing everything we can for the teams to bring their fans and partners as close to the racing as possible.

We will be asking for your support and your patience in this transition period for GTR24H. And we will be asking for the teams to prepare for big changes and an entirely new and different way of organizing sim racing as an eSport. But at the core, there will still be the worlds toughest endurance sim racing series.
