Racing Room becomes Burst Esport

Sim racing is quickly becoming the fastest growing branch of eSports. Mainly driven by the fact that sim racing skills can actually be applied to real life racing and vice versa. And big companies are starting to pay attention to this fact. Also the fact that nearly every person on the planet age 5 to 100 understand motorsport and the basic principles of racing. Not like other branches of eSport demands you to learn the game yourself before you can understand the sport.

Perhaps driven by this momentum, the Racing Room team has changed its name to Burst Esport. Racing Room will now be one of the sponsors of the Burst Esport team, which has signed RedBull as media-partner. Burst eSport has also teamed up with Profitgruppen to become the main sponsor for the team. On top of all this, they have just signed a 3-year deal with Diadora worth more than 100.000 €.

We are excited to see Burst Esport benefit from both their fantastic results in iRacing World Championship Grand Prix series and the attention that we, through Motorsport Network and our partners,  are able to bring to the sport.

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!
