The vote is almost dead even between #585 Asetek SimSport by Volante Racing and #404 GlamRacing. And close for third was #188 Teleforeningen and #777 DSR-GadgetHuset.dk
So here is your guess at the Le Mans podium
1st #585 Asetek SimSport by Volante Racing (34%)
Currently listed as being driven by Niels Hoogeveen, Maciej Kaspryzk, Elliso Netto, Alexander Secher, and Arda Ercan. Sadly the team hasn’t listed any more detailed information on the drivers.
2nd #404 GlamRacing (30%)
The GlamRacing driver list currently shows Henrik Hoier, Calum Wilson, Jakub Kowalski, Lee Russell, and Jef Vanniljen.
Started sim racing in late 2006 when a friend of his introduced him to GTR2. He then got into driving in the DGTL league in 2007. His first GTR24H event was in spring 2008 at Le Mans. He has been driving for several teams at GTR24H over the years including Grenaa bilhus racing, SimTech Motorsport and Innotech (today ID Simsport). Henrik has been a staple at every GTR24H since 2008, and never missed a year, if you count that Henrik in 2009 was a pit crew, not a driver.
Henrik has been driving gtr2, Rfactor 2, Iracing and Race07
In 2013 Henrik won the GTE class at the GTR24H event together with Innotech.
In 2018 Henrik won the Virtuel endurance championship LM-GT division 3 with Alexander van der Woude and SimTech Motorsport.
Henrik has not done any real-life racing, he doesn’t even have a driving license.
Henrik loves sim racing and likes to set goals for himself, so he gets better and faster, and his goal in sim racing is someday maybe winning another EEWC event.
Age 30 (born 1992) — Nationality British
Calum has been playing racing games since F1 2002 came out on PC! However, despite playing with the Codemasters F1 games, never decided to invest in sim racing until 2017.
Calum picked up a quick play seat challenge, a cheap Ferrari wheel off eBay and was hooked and has been entering casual sim leagues since whilst having long and hard battles with team-mate Lee Russell over the course of the last 3 years! (The rig has also been heavily updated since then too!)
After doing some mini-endurance leagues with World Sim Sports in 2019 and finishing runner-up with 2 wins and 5 podiums in 8 races, Calum is excited to take endurance racing a little more seriously.
Favourite car in sim-racing is the Porsche 911 RSR GTE and in real life, it would probably be his Mini JCW. Dream car is a Datsun 240z.
Also known as Kuba Kubica, is very passionate about racing simulations. He began with Geoff Grammonds Grand Prix 2 in 1996 with a keyboard, his first racing wheel was a Logitech Force EX, which he used for about 3 years playing F1 Games and Need For Speed 3,4 on PC until ca. 2000. Kuba then did not have a PC until 2010 and played Console racing games during this period. After playing Codemasters F1 2010 on Xbox, he decided to buy a PC, a wheel the Logitech G27, which he still uses today, the Pedals were upgraded to Fanatec V3 in 2017.
Age 41 — Nationality British. An experienced and successful sim racer who has been racing for the best part of 15 years.
A multiple-race winner in various championships and a rfactor stalwart since the early days. Lee has the opinion that to be the best, you must learn to drive anything fast no matter how difficult it may be.
Lee has entered many endurance series including the GTR24H 24hr of Spa 2020 together with Henrik, which was GlamRacing’s first race.
Age 43 — Nationality Belgium, also known as Jeeve79, is very passionate about video games in general since he was a child and especially simulator games like race sims and combat flight sims like DCS World.
He has always loved racing games from the very first time he saw Pole Position on the Commodore 64 when he was 6 years old. From Geoff Grammonds Grand Prix and Stunt Car Racer on the AMIGA and then into PC gaming, when that became a thing, he was all over it. Sportscars GT Grand Prix Legends EA F1 — Simbin GT Legends Nascar 2003 Rfactor1 Live For Speed — Assetto Corsa…
He ran Iracing for 2 years but when he went back to Rfactor2, he realized how good it feels on the limit and how connected you are with the car.
He bought an MS Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 joystick in 1998 and a Logitech G25 in 2006 and still uses these on a daily basis. According to him, it just won’t break and he has no excuses to buy anything else. The leather on his G25 rim has worn away in places but got it patched up with bicycle handlebar tape.
Jef has been racing leagues since Nascar 2003 but really got hooked into it thanks to Rfactor1.
