New Features For The Fans

GTR24H is all about the teams and their fans. And creating a platform, where it’s easy to follow the teams and getting the latest information is what our website is constantly evolving towards.

Today we reveal new options for the fans.

The first option is an important one, both for us and the teams. The rating system allows you to give the authors, both GTR24H and the teams feedback on the quality of the content. You can rate the articles on a scale of one to 5 stars. Rate it with a one-star rating if you don’t find the article interesting at all, and rate it 5 stars if you think it is perfect.

Second is a small addition of turn-page functionality. This allows you to flip forth and back through the articles, like flipping pages in a newspaper or magazine.

The third option is quite big. It is the addition of a comments section. This is meant for fans to debate the content of the articles. But please remember, this is not a Q&A section for the teams or drivers to ask questions for the organisation. Just like F1 drivers don’t use the comments section on F1.com or comments on the F1 Facebook page to ask questions for the FIA. This is for fans of the teams and fans of our series and races to debate the contents of our articles.

We hope everyone will be happy with the new additions and put them to good use.

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!
