New partner: Logitech – The Benchmark PC Racing Wheel Manufacturer

For longer than GTR24h has existed, Logitech has been the go-to manufacturer of entry-level to mid-range sim racing wheels. Much of the success of sim racing in the early two-thousands, is linked to the availability of cheap and high-quality racing wheels from Logitech. First the Logitech Momo Force, then in 2006 the legendary G25, which has been the wheel that really launched sim racing to the public.

The current iteration is the G29, an extremely strong and high-quality wheel, that has lifted Logitech from the mid-range to pro levels. Only direct drive wheels and wheels that come at 2-3 times the price, can truly compete with the G29. The only thing holding the G29 back is, in fact, the brushed electric force feedback motors. But in the G29 there are two of them, and a helical gearing system to provide that ultra smooth transition of force from the motors to the wheel. Combined with new digital encoders for wheel positioning, this is without a doubt, the best Logitech sim-racing wheel to date.

Logitech has been kind enough to provide two of these G29 wheels with pedals and 6.speed shifters, for us to give away to two lucky spectators, who can go back home from the event with a smile on their faces, knowing they can now start their own sim-racing careers.

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!
