Endurance eRacing World Championship – Le Mans 2020 – GT3 Podium

Although 1ACO found a hole in the rules and used it to comfortable take pole position, this fact didn’t promote their chances much when they had to fight against engine issues, heavy traffic and the rain doing it’s best to prevent their recovery drive. In the last hours of the race, they caught up with the Nightmare team and their almost flawlessly executed race. An incredibly good performance made it look like #777 Nightmare was going to take the victory for most of the morning. And then the anomaly of #23 Simracing Motorsport. If you heard the post-race interviews, you will know why this result is spectacular. We are most likely going to hear more about this car and performance quite soon.

Congratulations to all our GT3 podium finishers!

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!
