EWC 2018 willl be broadcast on Viasat eSportsTV

There are so many news and announcements, that we are having a hard time keeping up with just announcing them. The biggest and most important news this week, is that the broadcast of our event has gained yet another channel.

Together with Viasat, we are happy to announce that the entire race will be broadcast on eSportTV in the week following the race.

Since a lot of teams participating in the EWC 2018 are of Scandinavian origin, we know how important this extra reach is when negotiation financial support for your teams with sponsors. It has been of the very highest priority to our partnership and marketing department to land this deal as soon as possible. Unfortunate events outside of our influence have however resulted in the announcement being force-delayed until now.

MTG who owns Viasat are also the owners of the ESL, the worlds largest esport company. And only the fact that ESL One Hamburg is on the same weekend, is keeping the EWC 2018 from being transmitted live. But we get the next best thing.

All Nordic and Balticum residents will be able to relive the EWC 2018 in the week following the race on Viasat eSportTV.

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!
