GTE Podium – Indianapolis 12 Hours

From the very start of the race, it was a battle between the #74 of Dueces Motorsport Club and #959 HM Engineering, but an unfortunate collision with the outer wall in turn thirteen put the #74 out of reach for the podium.

The #7 Pescara ADG in their brand new Corvette C8R GTE kept following HM Engineering closely all the way through the race, but would not have the right strategy to take the win.

Further down the order, the competition fell by the wayside one by one until last years GTR/GT3 champions found themselves in third place at the end of the race.

Congratulations to the teams on the podium!

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!
