The EEWC 2018 Hardware Prizes

The preliminary hardware prizes for the 4 classes are now ready. It is unlikely that more will be added, with the exception of cash prizes, which we are still working very hard to secure.

There are some policies behind the distribution, which we would ask you to respect. We do not want to differentiate between any of the classes. To us, all classes are equally important. That being said, there is a very specific reason that GT3 is very different.

The GT3 prizes are vastly different because we don’t want to ruin the class by attracting highly skilled or professional racing teams to a class, that is meant for people who are in it, just for the fun of racing. GT3 or GT-Rookie class is meant for the people who are there to race and don’t care too much about winning. While P1, P2 and GTE classes are here, because different people just like different cars, the GT3 class serves a specific purpose. Namely to give people, who are new to sim racing, people who don’t practice too much and don’t care about results, and the teams that are into the race just for the challenge and fun of it, to have their own specific class to race. GT3 represents the roots of GTR24h and the EEWC. The bunch of friends who get together, love race cars and want to challenge themselves with a 24-hour race. And luckily Thrustmaster wanted specifically to support this with us, and together we came up with the idea, that the class with the most newcomers to sim racing, should of cause have a chance to win the most essential equipment to sim racing: A wheel and pedal set.

The combined retail value of the hardware prizes is between 15,000 and 16,000 € depending on offer prizes.

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!
