Fan Zone

Teams & drivers: Share this to get your family, friends and fans to cheer for you!

The GTR24H Fan Zone is a new initiative for fans of sim racing and fans of the teams.

Being a member of the Fan Zone will come with different perks. But the main perk, for now, is to be in the Google Hangouts call running during the race, where you get to cheer for your team and drivers in the live stream. There will also be opportunities to participate in interviews about your team and expectations during our broadcasts. We will use live interviews with fans in the content during live streams.

 

Google Hangouts/Meet is like a Zoom call for fans. The live meeting will appear in the broadcast from time to time, and fans will then have a chance to show their support for their favourite team, by cheering for them in the live broadcast.

Here is an example of a virtual fan zone from Formula Drift live broadcast https://youtu.be/N9j8GWc1hrM?t=1527

We will send the link for the Google Hangouts/Meet call to a selected 20 members of the Fan Zone for every race. Now, we can not just have everyone in a giant Google Hangouts call. So to enter, you need to complete a few tasks. And we will draw 20 random participants from the responders.

What do you need to be a Fan Zone member

You need a Google account or Gmail address to take part in the Google Hangouts/Meet calls. Depending on technical solutions you may also need to install the TeamSpeak 3 client and connect to our TeamSpeak server. You will receive a guide with precise instructions.

How to get access to the Fan Zone

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!
