Reorganization

You may have noticed a bit of a different tone and style around here for the last week. And that is because things are changing.

Casper, Chris and Lasse will be leaving the company as of August 1st. We want to thank them for the invaluable work they did in making GTR24h what it is. Without their work and contribution through the years, GTR24h would not have been what it is today. Every one of us from fellow organizers to participants has a lot to thank these guys for.

Having more than half of the leadership leave the company does demand change. First of all, we want to assure you, our customers, participants, followers and spectators, that we have ready and able replacements in place. And instead of putting the workload on just three people, we are planning to contract several more hands to lift the load.

That means, if anything, you should experience a more approachable organization with more resources. And given a little more time to establish the right team, we should have a more competent organization as well. Certainly, we are already seeing opportunities opening to us, that wasn’t an option before.

First and foremost we will be welcoming Nick Newcombe to the organization. Nick will be responsible for commentators and creating content. Helping Nick with creating articles, podcasts and other news media will be Neil Heatley. The plan is to make the teams more visible by creating sporting content on the particular teams.

On the modding side, we have recruited help as well.

We will be wishing the best for Casper, Lasse and Chris in their future endeavours. And we will be looking forward. Creating a better, bigger and more agile GTR24h organization.

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!
