Mugen SimRacing Ready For Monza 12-Hours

Mugen Sim Racing are a team of relative newcomers to GTR24H events. And indeed several of the teams drivers are newcomers to sim racing in general. But do not let the relatively low levels of experience in terms of years fool you. These guys mean business on the track. Currently sitting second in both the LMP2 and the GT3 classes in the EEWC this team is ready to take the fight to the biggest names in the sport.

We are certainly happy to have the team join the 12-Hours of Monza special event in the GT3 class. And this means 4 of the 10 initial slots in GT3 are now taken, while all 10 spots remain open in the GT4 class.

The team will be fielding three drivers in their GT3 car. Zoltán Várkonyi, 25 from Hungary. Christopher Kianek from Slovakia. And finally Roland Szucs also from Hungary.

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!
