Assetto Corsa Competizione Sprint Series

Together with a number of new partners, which will soon be disclosed, GTR24H is launching a brand new online 2-hour sprint series hosted in Assetto Corsa Competizione.

GTR24H owes its legacy to the 2005 release of GTR by Simbin and later GTR2 both simulating the high powered FIA GT Championship. This sparked the first GTR24H race in 2007. Today 13 years later, the biggest sportscar championship is the GT World Challenge, the modern equivalent of the 90s and early 00s GT Championship. It just so happens that Kunos Simulazioni created a world-class simulator called Assetto Corsa Competizione, simulating just that series, which makes this the moral successor to GTR2. The platform that started it all. Perfect.

The length of the races will be approximately two hours. We will schedule the race lengths with the aim of making two pit stops necessary for all cars. The championship will be for two-driver teams. The races will be live stewarded, just like our main rFactor 2 races. And they will be broadcast live with world-class sim racing commentary. The capacity is set at 30 teams. Should there be more than 30 teams signed up, a detailed plan for splitting the teams into tiers will be crafted. But do expect only the top tier races to be live broadcasted.

As a bit of a heads up for teams considering signing up for this series, you should also be prepared for some special obligations especially in regards to live streaming and content creation. More information on this will also be disclosed as soon as possible.

The following schedule is subject to change, but preliminary plans are to run races Thursdays on weekdays.

April 2nd – Suzuka
May 7th – Brands Hatch
June 4th – Zolder
August 6th – Hungaroring
September 3rd – Bathurst
October 1st – Spa

Further rules, signup, prize information and signup fee information will be published as soon as we possibly can. And to clarify the status of this project: Yes, there will be an Assetto Corsa Competizioné online championship series. That is settled. What needs finalizing, is the surrounding circumstances.

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!
