Global Connect Provides 10Gbit Internet For EEWC 2019

The ISP of 2018 was not up to par. The provided equipment made a lot of our plans, as well as plans for the teams impossible. We won’t let this happen again.

Teams being able to stream 60 fps full HD streams from their rigs and paddock areas. Us being able to run our own streams uninterrupted. For the coming media partners to be able to have rock solid high-bandwidth internet connection. This all has very high priority.

We went looking for the best possible solution available at the venue. And we believe we couldn’t possible find a better partner than Global Connect.

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!
