GT-Rookie 12 Hours Of Silverstone Podium

For the second race in a row, the sportsman class for the hobbyists, gentleman racers and “just racing for fun” class was one of the most-closely fought throughout the field.

Even so, the #717 Unison Racing crew came out on top once again, ahead of the #41 MUGEN Sim Racing McLaren 650sGT3 and the #26 OneMove Esports Ferrari 488 GT3, who rounded out the podium.

This just goes to show, that even though the prizes are the smallest out of all the four classes, coupled with the motivation being more about fun than winning, there is always a great prospect of  very exciting and close racing to be showcased by this class.

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!
