The Racing For Green Mission Continues

Last year sim racing was accepted by multiple motorsports organizations as an official branch of motorsports.

And last year the Endurance eRacing World Championship became the first 100% directly carbon emissions-free motorsport event. We did this by securing a contract with the power providing company. The certificate states that all used electricity during the event must be matched with an equivalent CO2 emissions-free production. This news broke worldwide and was featured on Motorsport Networks, Yahoo News and MSN amongst others.

So once again this year, the event will be certified emissions-free and on top of that, we will be starting the new “Racing for Green” initiative. This means that during the event, everyone will have the opportunity to buy CO2 absorption equivalent to the CO2 produced by real cars on the real track at Le Mans.

And we haven’t just joined with a company that just spreads seeds or plant random saplings. Global GGW makes sure the trees will live for at least 50 years with proper care and surveillance. They will never get chopped and used for firewood and never be burned down to clear room for more farming grounds.

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!
