Constantin Grimminger (born 14 July 1992), nicknamed 'Stän', is a German sim racer, currently competing for Yellow Hawk Racing in the .Race9 GT4 Cup.

Sim racing career

Grimminger started his sim career in mid-2005 in minor German leagues, using F1 Challenge 99-02. In the late part of the first decade of the millenium he joined the league F1C-Fun, a league with a career system, where he gained his first major success by finishing third in the rookie-level A1GP Championship and thus graduated to the league's GP2 series. However, he wasn't able to keep up his success and dropped off the season early.

This left Grimminger without a league drive until 2011, when he partnered up with long-time friend Martin Jatzek to start the Race4Speed precessor GP2League.com, a league which lasted for only three rounds. However, both drivers weren't willing to let go and finally founded Race4Speed. In the same time he participated in DLM Racing e.V.'s FormelDRL; also he took part in the 2017 NASCAR season at GPLatina and other leagues.

After taking steps towards serious international competition at IVRC, he was contacted by .Race9 to join the staff team and work on the founding of the league. As .Race9 staff member he is taking duty on commentating streams and organizing events, however he also appears as driver in selected series and events.

Unlike other drivers, he competed as keyboard driver in most of his early career before finally buying a used Logitech Driving Force GT in mid-2014 from his then-R4S GP3 team mate Benjamin Röske. Grimminger used this wheel until 2017, when he bought a Logitech G29.

GT4 Cup

With the beginning of .Race9, Grimminger joined the GT4 Cup for it's debut season in 2020–21 with his own team, Yellow Hawk Racing.
