Come meet GTR24h this Easter at Copenhagen Games 2018

Together with Sim Lab and Undercover Racing, GTR24h will be present at Copenhagen Games with two simulators this Easter. Spectators, visitors and participants at the GPH Games 2018 are more than welcome to come and visit the stand at lot 1.03. Turn right at the entrance and you will arrive at the GTR24h stand, right beside BenQ and Waoo.

The two simulators will be open for you to try, and there will be a Top Gear hot-lap competition, to try and set the fastest lap at the famous 24-hour circuit. You can also meet the Danish racing driver and DTC Champion Lasse Sørensen, for autographs and a talk about why he participates in the GTR24h Endurance eRacing World Championship and his involvement in sim racing in general.

There will be videos material and representatives of the GTR24h showing you what sim racing is, why it is a proper eSport and you can try racing for sim racing for yourself.

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!
