New GTR24H Shop Launched

We have had a merchandise store for years. But it has always been shoehorned in together with signups, spectator tickets and other unrelated products. We have also always tried to have inventive cool racing or sim-racing-related products that are NOT company merch. Like the, in our opinion pretty cool, racing terms products that feature famous terms or cool memes used in motorsports.

The new lightweight design of the webshop is the first site launched in a whole series of reworked lightweight designs to come shortly. With hundreds of thousands of viewers tuning in for every race on various streaming apps like Motorvision.tv, ROKU, Amazon Fire, Samsung Plus etc. the focus is on bringing the mobile experience as a fan and follower of the teams and racing series up to date. And for mobile usability the speed of the website is essential. That is another reason why we are taking apart the current combined “one-site / one-page” and will be bringing you a separate main site for fans and followers, a separate site for teams and drivers, a separate site for press and journalists, a separate site for existing and interested partners, and then this separate webshop site.

But of course, no matter what platform you prefer, you will still be able to find all the usual GTR24H and EEWC merch as well. We are especially proud of our wide selection of caps that we are now able to offer in more colours and with more designs. And speaking of GTR24H merchandise there is an introduction sale on t-shirts, polo-shirts EEWC and GTR24H caps.

Further products will be added to the store in the coming months. The next big step in the store is developing the options for teams to be included in the merchandise program. Before that becomes a reality, both technical, financial and tax challenges need to be ironed out. We need to find an acceptable standard agreement with interested teams.

But, that is not all! We are currently working with both hardware vendors and various clothing companies to bring you even more sim-racing-related products. We hope to be able to offer a wide range of products all the way from entire pre-assembled or build-yourself PCs to racing boots, racing gloves, wheels, rigs etc. All products carefully selected and tested by us. How about PCs that we have tested to bring you a specific frame rate in specific racing games on ultra-wide resolutions, triple screens, in specific VR headsets, and that are designed to be 100% reliable for more than 24 hours of straight 100% gaming load? With specific maintenance plans for you with careful instructions on how to keep your PC performing at its maximum level. That is our intention for the future of this webshop.

For now, please enjoy and support GTR24H by visiting the new shop.

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!
