With the experience of GTR24h 2017 in clear memory, I set out on a mission. A mission to join together some of the best young danish racing talents, and letting them race at the 2018 event. This mission have brought along several partners in the Racing, simracing, Gaming and Tech businesses.
The mission also brought together four drivers, witch i would say represents both talent and variety. Team Asetek Academy eSports will develop in the future, hopefully with more drivers, more events and more Racing. We thank our team partners Asetek and iSimRS for their continued support and collaboration.
At the GTR24h 2018 Team Asetek Academy eSports will be running their Mclaren 650s gt3.
