Ossian Puhakka And Aidan Millward Interviews Dennis Lind During 2019 EEWC

At around 2 a.m. in the morning, Dennis Lind joined the stage for a 20-minute talk about his real-life racing career, sim racing and how he professionally uses sim racing in his professional career. He was kind enough to give us quite an in-depth view of sim racing, the realism of it, potential future and some advice on how to develop yourself as a confident race driver.

Watching the video you will get a glimpse of how a real-life race driver approaches sim racing and how he actually uses it to progress in his career. To be honest we think it is actually all fairly exciting stuff and we are very thankful to Dennis Lind for gr4anting us this opportunity to talk sim racing with him.

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!
