Porsche expands its partnership with the sim racing provider iRacing. Since mid-December, competitors have pitted themselves against each other in qualifying rounds for the 2020 Porsche Esports Supercup in the so-called “Porsche iRacing Cup” on different virtual racetracks.
Over 4,900 sim racers have already taken part in the qualifying rounds – twice as many participants compared to last year. The qualification concludes on 2 March, with the top 20 qualifiers gaining entry to contest the Porsche Esports Supercup. At present, the Formula 1 driver and avid sim racer Max Verstappen is competing, with the Red Bull racer from the Netherlands currently ranking 20th as at 10 February 2020. The illustrious grid line-up will be enhanced by the 20 top sim racers from last season.
Moreover, the points gained at the end of the qualifying rounds determine the performance level in relation to the entire starting grid.
