BREAKING NEWS: New Media Partner – Sport Extra

A contract for twelve 2-hour Assetto Corsa Competizione Sprint races was signed today. The races will be live broadcasted on television and associated streaming services by SportExtra (https://www.sportextra.ro/)

The first race is preliminarily scheduled to start next Wednesday at 16.00. This schedule may change, as a doubt, any of our teams will be ready to race at such short notice.

Races will take place every second Wednesday in the late afternoon or early evening.

There will be a handsome cash price at the end of the season to the overall podium teams. And we are currently debating some system or solution to financially support the teams that choose to race all races in the season.

Signup procedure will be in place as soon as possible. But prepare for signup fees to be very low for teams that dedicate time to participate and contribute both on and off track, significantly higher for teams that just want to race. The payback for full season participation may very well be higher than the participation fee. Meaning teams will actually get paid to race in this series.

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!
