GTR24H is developing long-term contracts with broadcasting and publishing companies. A crucial part of succeeding in retaining viewership is the buildup of a healthy fanbase around the teams. When you are with GTR24H we will help create content and attract both fans and sponsors for your team. But to do this, we need consistency in return. We need to know that your team will show up for the races and that you will make your best possible efforts to be as dedicated as possible. We are not looking for the best teams. We are looking for the most interesting and dedicated teams. Teams with rich and interesting backstories with long-term commitments will be preferred.
