Endurance eRacing World Championship 2018 – Pre-registration is now public

At the time of this post, there were 17 remaining spots. The registration process has followed the following plan: First podium finishing teams for 2017 were allowed to register up to 4 car-spots per team. Then we opened up for all 2017 participating teams to register up to 4 car spots. After that, we did a ton of information digging and did our best to contact everyone who previously participated in a GTR24h event. They were then allowed to register up to 4 car-sport per team.

And now it’s finally time to go public!

You are allowed to register up to 4 car-spots per team, by using the following link:

Disclaimer: If you get car-spots inside the first 40 teams, you will not be able to get a refund on your pre-registration. This counts as our insurance towards our budget so that we don’t face any financial problems. And this is not the final participation fee. When the classes and car-pack are finally decided and finished, hopefully by the end of January, the final ticket sales will open. The first 40 pre-registered teams will then have about a month to finalize their registration, with driver names, sponsors, car and class choice (not binding, but information MUST be provided).

If any of the teams inside the 40 first teams should not be able to compete, the first teams on the reserve list will be notified. They will then have a couple of weeks to decide whether they want the spot. If not, the right moves on to the next team on the reserve list. When the final lineup is decided, the teams on the reserve list, that did not get to compete, will get their pre-registration fee returned. Teams inside the first 40 teams, that give up their spot will not get a return.

Should the situation arise, that a participating team, after paying the final registration, decides to withdraw, the spot will again be offered to the first available team on the reserve list. The original team will get a refund of their participation fee, not the pre-registration fee, but only if a reserve team is available to fill the spot. Again, this rule is in place to ensure that we have solid budget that we can count on.

The total final participation fee (including pre-registration) will be somewhere between 150 to 300 €, depending on not yet settled pricing and sponsor agreements.

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!
