24-Hours of Spa-Francorchamps – GT3 Podium

What a performance! Once again the GT3 cars put on the show at the end. It was down to a splash and dash pit stop and 12 seconds after 23 and 50 minutes. #404 GlamRacing had to gamble on the #585 Volante Racing by Asetek SimSports also needing a pit stop in the dying minutes, but they didn’t and #404  ended up in second by some 30 seconds.

The rest of the GT3 field started out as a toss-up battle between #188 Teleforeningen, #777 DSR-GaddgetHuset.dk and the former DPi team of #1 Viadukten. Sometime past midnight and in the early morning hours the #777 DSR-GaddgetHuset.dk got away and made itself a strong candidate for the podium. Even at one time, they were threatening to take second from the #585 machine. But it was all to end very differently.

GlamRacing is now trailing Asetek Simsport by a full 31 points. But luckily it’s double points for Le Mans. That means, if #404 takes pole position and wins, they will come home with a healthy 54 points. But it means the #585 crew must not finish higher than third place. And if Volante Racing by Asetek SimSports takes pole position, finishes third and GlamRacing wins, then the #585  will take the championship by a single point. It just goes to show how important those single points for winning the race and pole position can end up being.

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!
