Round 3 - Watkins Glen

Tonight marks Rounds 4 & 5 of Season 7 of UKSimRacing’s Porsche Cup as hosted on iRacing!

In this pair of rounds the paddock returns to the United States of America for Watkins Glen International. Located in the state of New York, the circuit is widely regarded as the country’s “Mecca” of road racing due its history of playing host to most major international series including Formula One; GT World Challenge America; and NASCAR. Focused on an aggressive combination of straights and sweeping corners of varying degrees of camber, the track shall deliver some of the highest average lap speeds we shall see this season meaning every mile per hour gained from corner to corner will be the key to victory for our drivers!

In the Gold class, after taking his third victory in a row at Spa-Francorchamps, Thomas Cope stands 37 points clear of the chasing pack as led by Kory Lazarus. Cope has undoubtedly earned himself early favourite status, but with many drivers including Lazarus; Paul Busby; and Igor Kos all building momentum, Cope will be under ever-increasing pressure to stay one step ahead tonight!

In the Silver class, a hard-fought win on home soil last week has resulted in Jeremy de Boever extending his lead to 30 points over Adam Greveson. Whilst de Boever continues to look strong, impressive performances from Greveson and Chris Rance last week to finish on the podium highlight their hunger for their first wins of the season. Will Greveson or Rance be able to sate their appetite for victory tonight? Or will de Boever deny them once more?

With the mid-season break looming, who shall go into the interlude on a high? Tune in and find out!
