Guide to participate

Please read the GTR24h Regulations carefully as the requirements for participation is based on some minimum laps online.

First of all be aware that this is a LAN event, therefore you and your team needs to travel to Kolding, Denmark to participate. You need a team of 2-5 drivers, but 3-4 is said to give the best experience. It will be a good idea to bring at least one person as pit crew to watch the telemetry and warn your drivers about fuel use, tyre wear, accidents on the circuit etc. You can request to be part of a team or start your own by using the forum at www.facebook.com/gtr24h, or you can ask friends and family to join you.

When you have your team you need to start practising. To get the absolute best result, make a new Windows installation (Vista, 7, 8 or 10), install drivers and Windows updates.

When Windows is up to date and running, install the following:

1. rFactor 2
2. TeamSpeak 3

TeamSpeak is software for quality voice communication over Internet and LAN and is used both during practice online and during the GTR24h race event between the pit and the racing driver.
When you are ready to buy your ticket, please go to GTR24h.org/registration. Here you will find three different types of ticket.

Skins

If you want to make a skin for your car, you can send the skin to skins@gtr24h.org. We will check the validity of the files, and it will then be included in the car package before the event. The deadline for custom skins is 14 days before the event. Templates for the cars and number plates are available from the GTR24h.org/downloads

Practical information

When you are going to the event, pack your race frame of choice and the computer you choose for the race. And perhaps bring a backup PC for the race computer in case of problems. Bring money, air mattress, sleepingbag, towels, soap, toothbrush, blankets and any equipment you want to use in your pit/paddock area (laptops, headsets, ethernet cable (5m) etc.).

The event starts Friday evening with practice time. Teams arrive and set up their gear. The GTR24h hands out a 3×3 meter pavilion tent for each team to use as Pit/Paddock area. People talk and mingle, and you will meet old and new friends :)
