Endurance eRacing World Championship – Le Mans 2020 – LMP2 Podium

They started on pole position, then PINSIM Drillers Esports took the lead. But all the time Burst Edge Esport was always lurking in the background, ready to strike at the opportune moment. But through the night Burst Edge Esport would struggle with engine trouble and once again they found themselves performing a hard-fought recovery drive at the Circuit de la Sarthe. And in the morning they did return to take second place.

In third place, we find what could be described as a surprise. The small dutch team Fair Racing Team came out on top as best of the rest by sticking to the simple plan of avoiding problems and just keep putting laps in the bank.

Congratulations to all our LMP2 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!
