Only hours after making the event official, Satellite racing entered two GT3 cars into the race, taking two of the initial 10 GT3 spots available.
Car #64 will be piloted by Jimi Nisula, Henri Sinik, Liam Rance, and James Dziuba, while car #65 will be directed around the course in the hands of Ryan Nash, Nello Pastorino, Juan Amaya, and Tom Kapusta.
These are two very strong driver lineups almost identical to the drivers that finished 1-2 in the latest EEWC race at the Nürburgring. And on top, they did force the until then season perfect Varga SimRacing so hard they ended up making uncharacteristic mistakes, in a car that according to the Satellite Racing drivers was slower than the Oreca LMP2 car of Varga. Now, whether the slower part is actually true, we will let the viewers and readers decide.
Satellite Racing is a team that perhaps resembles the dreams of all sim racers the best: To get discovered and have a career in real-life racing. But with the esports racing scene taking off like it did in the last year, maybe that is no longer the dream for many? Maybe just racing in sim racing is enough to make a decent career? We at GTR24H are certainly doing our best to make that a reality. Either way, Satellite Racing races both virtual and real cars. And they actually have an 81.82 % win rate and 91% pole position rate in the series they race in the real world. And they are branching to karting, rallycross, touring cars and sports prototypes.
It’s going to be really enjoyable to see the team perform at Monza.
