Thrustmaster Supporting the GT-Rookie Class

Grassroots sim racing, the people that join the race just to have the adventure, or the new guys in sim racing who wants to challenge themselves. You will find them all in the GT-Rookie Class.

With a wide mix of drivers ranging from seasoned veteran hobbyists to real life race drivers doing their first ever esport sim racing event, to first-time sim racers, that have never done any kind of competitive racing, the GT-Rookie class is by far the most diverse class of the event.

For the same reason, Thrustmaster wants to show its support for the starting or hobbyist sim racers, by providing some sim racing equipment for the prize pool in the GT-Rookie class. Thrustmaster provides a fantastic starter to mid-level product range, so any beginner or hobbyist should be kitted out nicely with the prizes from Thrustmaster.

A part from us recommending Thrustmaster to support the GT-Rookie class, they wanted to confirm to the people thinking about starting in sim racing, that the Thrustmaster product range is the right place to start.

The interchangeable steering wheels and the number of 3rd party hop-ups and upgrades confirm the popularity of the Thrustmaster products. This again means a longer life cycle for your wheels and pedals.

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!
