Nürburgring 24 Hours 2020

Tradition dictates special GTR24H events and no track or race is more special than long-distance endurance racing on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. Last year this was the race that teams cherished the most. The challenge of surviving 24 hours in The Green Hell is something to brag about on its own. On top of this, the track is a tremendous joy to just do practice runs on. The amount of driving joy this track provides is unparalleled. So naturally, we had to do a special event resembling the Nürburgring 24 Hours. And now that the real-life race is sadly postponed to September and we are all lacking some proper motorsport entertainment, what better date than the original weekend of the real-life race?

The race will take place in the weekend 23rd – 24th of May. With qualifying starting Friday, May 22nd at 20.00 CEST.

We also decided to do something a little more special this year. And since the real-life race has like a million classes and 200+ participating cars we took a look at the DLC shelves of Studio 397 and came up with this:

Top class resembling the real-life SP9 will be all of the original Studio 397 GT3 cars.
The BMW M2 with its 3-litre turbo engine will be in the SP8T class.
The third class is the obvious choice of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Endurance Spec which represents the SP7 class.

The race will be live-streamed on Facebook, YouTube and Twitch with full commentary. This will include lead-in and follow up with interviews.

You will find the rules for the race in the GTR24H sporting regulations and a special addendum for this race at the end of the document.

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!
