HyperCar 12-Hours Of Silverstone Podium

It’s always fascinating to see the fast McLaren Senna GTR HyperCar rip through the traffic on track. Sadly for this race only two of the four signed up HyperCars were able to compete in the top class for the biggest prizes and overall win.

Even though PINSIM Drillers Esport led from the start to the checkered flag, Omicron just kept pushing to catch up and we have to applaud the Omicron team for their efforts.

Considering that the Hypercar class is sure to grow in car choice and brands next year, going from six signed up entries to only two cars at Silverstone is surely a bit disappointing. Especially when you consider the class is likely to always be racing for the overall wins and collect the biggest prizes.

We do hope to see at least the #64 Satellite Racing car return on their own home turf at Sebring next weekend.

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!
