The official danish championship is forming

The upcoming official Danish Sim Racing Championship will be starting in January 2023. The Championsihp has got a new structure, which will make it possible for all levels of drivers to participate. 

The championship has been renamed to “Sprint Pro” and “Sprint Trophy”. The Pro is for serious teams and drivers which are aiming to be crowned as the Official Danish Sim Racing Champion. The Trophy is division based and will make room for any driver no matter level. The promotor of the championship, Thor Qualmann, says :

“With this new structure we are able to accomodate both the elite and hobby Drivers. We want to keep the PRO series as a topdivision which will be very competitive” 

The number of divisions depends on how many drivers that sign up for the Championship. We aim to have 30 drivers on each division. The Sprint Pro and Sprint Trophy will be running under seperate regulations, compared to the Division 2,3,4 etc.


Sprint Pro and Trophy Division 1

In order to qualify for the Sprint Pro and Sprint Trophy Division 1, the Teams must participate in the hot lap based qualify which will take place in december 2022. Each team must sign up with two drivers, the average lap time of the drivers will determine the their position. The 15 fastest Teams will be invited to the Sprint Pro.

If your team do not make the cut for Sprint Pro, it will automatically be placed in the Sprint Trophy Division.

The Sprint Pro division will be broadcasted live with danish commentary, from ESR’s studio in Copenhagen, Denmark. All races will be transmitted via ESRs Youtube Channel.Thor Qualmann explains :

In the coming season we are not going to have TV2 as media partner on the Championship. We decided to take one step back and build our own studio. This studio will be used for this championship as well as other activites we are going to have in the future. 

Since 2018 the Official Danish Championship has been running under the names of Danish Esport Racing Championship and latest, Porsche Esports Carrera Cup Denmark. 

Sprint Trophy

The Sprint Trophy division will be appealing for the wide community. In the divisions under Division 1, we will be focusing on the community, the regulations will be very close to the ones we know from the ESR GT3 Trophy.

The registration for the Sprint Trophy will be very simple, everybody can register. The drivers will be assigned divisions according to their iRating.

Join our GT3 League

Join our GT3 League

This is a digital community where the prizes go to the fast participants by lottery, so you can also win in the conditions that you do not win a race or the whole championship.

When the season is over, we make a draw between the participants who have been participating in at least four rounds of the championship. Big prizes are up for grabs in the form of Heusinkveld Sprint pedalsSparco Hypergrip gloves and gift cards for Racehall.

The social engagement weighs a lot for us, this is why the Gift Card to Racehall, must be used as part of the end-of-year ESR community event at Racehall. The event will take place the 19th of December. Here we meet physically and race against each other in a real life karting race.

Naturligvis handler det om at være den bedste, de får point, ære og hæder i mesterskabskampen. Men GT3 Trophy er meget mere, et digitalt fællesskab hvor præmierne går til de faste deltagere ved lodtrækning, så du også kan vinde selvom du ikke vinder et løb eller hele mesterskabet. 

Når sæsonen er slut trækker vi lod mellem de deltagere, som har været med i mindst fire afdelinger. Her er store præmier på spil i form af Heusinkveld Sprint pedaler, Sparco Hypergrip handsker og gavekort til Racehall. 

Det sociale fylder meget, derfor er sidstnævnte præmierne et gavekort til Racehall, hvor vi holder sæsonafslutning den 19. december. Her mødes vi fysisk og kører race både i Aarhus og Taastrup, så vi kan dyrke fælleskabet, fortælle røverhistorier og give den gas i en gokart.
