Round 6 - Road America

onight marks Rounds 9 & 10 of Season 7 of UKSimRacing’s Porsche Cup as hosted on iRacing!

For this pair of rounds our drivers return to the United States of America for the final time this season to take on Road America. Opened in 1955, the Wisconsin state circuit is a classic for road racing with its 14 corner layout having seen minimal change over its 67 year history. At its core is a straight-forward mix of extended straights and tight corner sequences which make top speed and braking potential the key factors to success. As a result, we can expect plenty of hard-fought battles under braking here as our competitors aim to outrun each other in the charge to the next corner!

In the Gold class, despite the intense pressure placed on him by defending champion Philipp Hammer at Jerez last week, Thomas Cope was able to hold on for victory. Whilst his championship lead now stands at 45 points over Hammer, Cope’s will certainly be taking nothing for granted tonight as he looks to maintain his lead one round at a time. Question is, can Hammer find a way to break through the indomitable spirit of Cope?

In the Silver class, a smooth drive to a second Endurance round victory last week has seen Jeremy De Boever extend his advantage to 50 points over rising challenger Chris Eddisford. However, De Boever will be wary of the risks of falling back into the chasing pack, especially given only seven points separates Eddisford; Adam Greveson; and Steve Hobbs, and many other drivers are starting to find their form including Chris Rance and Alex Hiscox!

Who shall make the picturesque countryside of Elkhart Lake roar to the tune of victory? Tune in and find out!
