Round 4 - VIR

Tonight marks Rounds 6 & 7 of Season 7 of UKSimRacing’s Porsche Cup as hosted on iRacing!

We return from the mid-season break with this pair of rounds seeing our drivers take on the American circuit of Virginia International Raceway. More commonly referred to as “VIR”, the Full Course layout of the track shall place host to our drivers. With its 17 fast-flowing corners as broken up into three unique and highly complex corner sequences, the focus shall be on our drivers’ consistency with even the smallest of mistakes potentially race ending. Moreover, with overtaking opportunities centred on the course’s two extended straights, exit speed come the conclusion of a given corner sequence shall be top priority!

In the Gold class, whilst his initial run of wins may have come to a halt last time out at Watkins Glen, Thomas Cope’s charge at the top of the field has not. Now leading by 50 points over Dan Sedgley, Cope has set a hard target for his rivals to chase down. However, given the mid-season break and Cope’s expected absence tonight, could we see some of his rivals gain ground? Or will Cope’s lead continue to stand strong?

In the Silver class, despite his absence in the previous pair of rounds, Jeremy De Boever continues to lead by 14 points over the chasing pack as headed by Adam Greveson. De Boever will undoubtedly be refreshed and ready to extend his advantage tonight, but watch out for Greveson who will be eager to further close the gap following an unfortunate day of racing at Watkins Glen!

As we return to the racing action tonight, who shall resume their championship campaign in fine form? Tune in and find out!

Our schedule is as follows: 20:00 Broadcast Starts 20:15 Qualifying (8 minutes) 20:25 Sprint Race (12 minutes) 20:45 Feature Race (30 minutes)
