ID Simsport Enters Three Cars for EEWC 2019 with Koenigsegg Supplier

More than 10 years of endurance racing. What is now known as ID Simsport started it’s early racing days as Team Innotech C2 Racing and ever since then they mainly had their eyes on endurance racing.
The team has always prioritized GTR24H’s EEWC as THE EVENT. And throughout the year’s many great results have been collected to the resumé.

“ID Simsport is a large team, and we normally attend EEWC with 3 or 4 cars. But it is a nice team with a great teamspirit, there is a place for every driver, no matter age or driving skills. But the team still has a very serious approach to the sport”

Gert Nielsen – Driver of ID Simsport

Sim-racing has evolved and matured vastly in recent years, and at ID Simsport they also had to adapt their approach to the sport, not to be overtaken by other teams. But they continue to stay true to the spirit of the team, a team spirit and environment where there’s a place for drivers on all levels.

The bar has never been set higher and with partners joining our team, the demand for results rises. This has a natural impact on the expectation within the team, therefore this year they have put together a driver lineup consisting of solid sim-racing experience and speed, and then added a real-life racer, Jacob Mathiassen, who’s driving the British GT Championship for Century Motorsport.

To me Sim Racing is the ultimate practice platform for motorsports. It is very close to the real thing and you can truely feel even the smallest setup changes and how they effect the car. To be honest you almost have the same feeling as when you are sitting in the real race car when you are on the limit. I’ve used a couple of years for practicing all the english circuits that are raced in the Britich GT Championship and it helps be sharp and well prepared for every race weekend. I’m looking very much forward to being a part of the 24-hour race with ID Simport.

With sponsors approaching the sport with financial support, there’s also a demand for results and exposure.
And with that said, last year the team landed a multi-year agreement with the esports department of Hobro IK – Hobro Vikings. Teleforeningen has also been a trusted sponsor for several years through personal sponsorship.

“To me, simracing is a way to relaxation from everyday life. And for those of us who love racing, but will never experience real life racing, it’s the perfect opportunity to experience the feeling of racing.
When the lights go out and the battle for positions, it’s probably not very different from reality.
As the driver Lasse Sørensen said, the only difference is that you don’t die when you crash.”

Thomas Bregnegaard-Madsen – Driver of ID Simsport

The idea that sim-racing is for everyone is and has always been part of the ID Simsport DNA, and with the ever-increasing competition at EEWC, they bring one car in the GTE class which is expected to be tougher than ever before. But they also bring two cars in the GT-Rookie class where there’s still room for hobby and gentleman drivers.

“It’s a fantastic environment, were friendships a formed across genders, age and borders. You can live out your dream as driver at heart and drive cars you could only dream of driving, it’s as real as it gets without being in the car.
ID Simsport is a great team and everybody has a voice in the team, and being able to provide input to achieve best possible outcome of the races.”

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!
