24-Hours at Le Mans – GTE Podium

Races can be won in a plethora of ways. Teams can win on superior fuel strategy, having fewer tire changes thus spending less time in the pits, being cautious and avoiding accidents, and preparing equipment vigorously to avoid hardware failure. But, in the end, all it comes down to is who travels the farthest distance in 24 hours.

Through the season we have seen some stunning performances by the #45 DIS Sim Racing Lab. They have at some point or another led most of the races of the season. And finally, for Le Mans the final round of the season, they pulled off the win with Andi Kurtsen, Andreas Olesen,  and Rasmus Thulstrup at the wheel.

Second place was grabbed by the #166 ID Simsport crew of Michael Pedersen, Magnus Berggreen, Markus Nedergaard Stæhr, and Jesper Pedersen with an equally strong performance in stability and pace. beating out the #488 Deuces Motorsport Crew of Eric Schmieder, Yannick Pliess, Patrick Pliess, and Dylan Klaver.

A huge congratulations to all the GTE Podium finishers!

For the championship, the #74 Deuces Motorsport Club with Vojta Polesny, Tonnie Jansen, Joao Barbosa, Roy De Muinck, and Juha Maki-Jouppi pretty much just needed to show up and finish the race. The #27 MCM-Motorsport suffered a catastrophic hardware failure that sent the car barreling onto the tire wall at Mulsanne corner at full speed.

This event was very close to elevating the #45 DIS Sim Racing Lab to second in the championship, but because there is no rule for the number of laps needed to complete the race the #27 still scores 20 points for fifth place which means they get to keep their second-place finish in the championship.

There will be more news and content on the championship in the coming days.

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!
