Round 7 - Circuit Gilles Villeneuve

Tonight marks Rounds 11 & 12 of Season 7 of UKSimRacing’s Porsche Cup as hosted on iRacing!

As the season charges into its final third, in this pair of rounds we head to Canada for Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Infamous for its “Wall of Champions” which awaits our drivers on the exit of the final chicane, this circuit blends together numerous chicanes; extended straights; and close walls to create a heart-pounding 2.71 mile lap. With the smallest of mistakes potentially being race ending, our drivers shall need to find the right balance between risk and reward should they wish to come out on top and enshrine their names into history books alike the hometown Formula One hero after whom the circuit is named!

In the Gold class, whilst it was a missed opportunity for back-to-back wins at Road America last week, championship leader Thomas Cope was still able to further extend his lead over Philipp Hammer with a double-podium. 53 points now separate the pair, and with rounds running out, another strong performance tonight could provide Cope with the opportunity to wrap-up the championship in a week’s time at Silverstone!

In the Silver class, in securing his first two wins of the season last week, Chris Eddisford has reduced the gap to championship leader Jeremy De Boever to 23 points. With championship momentum ebbing and flowing between the pair from week to week, could we expect De Boever to strike back tonight and return to the top step? Or can Eddisford further his pursuit and put the championship on level ground with three rounds to go?

Who shall have nerves of steel to run close to the walls in Montreal? Tune in and find out!
