Assetto Corsa Competizione 12 race sprint series – 6000€ Prize Pool – 50 € Cashback

The contract with SportExtra requires fast action. On Wednesday we will kick off the series with the first 2-hour race at Spa-Francorchamps. The first race of the season will have a 600 € cash prize for first place, as well as hardware prizes sponsored by RIOTORO and ZYLINC.

The remaining eleven (11) races will have a first-place prize payout of 100 € minimum.

This means the special event that was supposed to be run on Tuesday is replaces with the first race of the Assetto Corse Competizione Sprint Series. All the teams signed up for the race on Tuesday will have their signup transferred to the full Sprint Series Season instead. That means anybody signed up for the special event on Tuesday are now automatically upgraded to an entry in the entire season with no extra cost.

All races in the season are two (2) hours in length. Qualifying is 25 minutes. The season is for two-driver teams. There will be room for 30 cars in the season. Qualifying will start at 19.30 and races approximately at 20.00.

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!
