Musto GD e-Sports Secures 31 Point Championship Lead

Everything was lined up for the big clash at Silverstone. The race that was supposed to have the three championship podium contenders fight it out for two hours of intensive door to door racing. Or that was what we thought. But that didn’t happen and #71 Musto GD e-Sport car walked away from the battlefield with a 31 point lead. Both #94 and #57 fell victim of foul technical issues and didn’t finish the race. And the post-race show was oddly quiet in terms of driver interviews.

We were, however, treated to plenty of close racing for 4th position in the championship. A battle that now has seven teams inside a 25 point gap. We are likely to not see the end of this contest before the season finale finish line at Monza.

Misano in Italy is the next race on the 16th of September. Set your alarms for 19.00 CEST to catch the pre-race show on SportExtra, Facebook, Twitch, Twitter, YouTube, and DLive.

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!
