Round 5 - Jerez

onight marks Round 8 of Season 7 of UKSimRacing’s Porsche Cup as hosted on iRacing!

In this round the paddock heads to Spain for the Circuito de Jerez - Ángel Nieto for the second Endurance Race round of the season. Named after the country’s legendary motorcyclist, the 2.74 mile course is packed with a contrasting combination of sweeping corners and harsh hairpins making the track highly technical in nature. To do well here our drivers shall need to master the art of the late apex as otherwise they shall find themselves vulnerable to overtakes. Moreover, with battles expected to run from corner-to-corner, we can expect rivalries to intensify under the sultry Spanish sunshine!

In the Gold class, with championship leader Thomas Cope absent last week, the gap to the top has closed to 30 points with Dan Sedgley leading the chase in second place. Yet, with Sedgley only five and seven points ahead of a resurgent Philipp Hammer and an in-form Patrik Thomsen respectively, can Cope use this to his advantage to re-open his lead? Or will we see the battle for second place take centre stage tonight?

In the Silver class, despite being slightly off-pace at VIR, Jeremy De Boever has extended his lead to 29 points over Adam Greveson. Meanwhile, Greveson’s mixed fortunes last week were in stark contrast to those of his FR20 Sim Racing teammate Steve Hobbs who delivered a double-podium moving him into third, only two points behind Greveson. Could we see Hobbs leap ahead of Greveson? Or will Greveson reestablish his pursuit of De Boever?

How will our drivers get on in tackling the technical test of Jerez? Tune in and find out!
