Round 8 - Silverstone

Tonight marks Rounds 13 & 14 of Season 7 of UKSimRacing’s Porsche Cup as hosted on iRacing!

In this pair of rounds we take a trip back in time to 2008 and visit the UK for the legacy layout of the high-speed high-downforce Silverstone circuit. Widely regarded as the “Home of British Motor Racing”, what was once the site of a Royal Air Force airfield has rapidly become an annual host of many major annual motorsport series including Formula One; British GT and MotoGP. With its wide road surface; numerous straights; and sweeping corners, we can expect battles to run from lights out to chequered flag as our drivers are encouraged to push their machines to the absolute limit!

In the Gold class, with drop scores now in effect, a challenging day in Canada has seen championship leader Thomas Cope’s lead over rival Philipp Hammer reduced slightly to 48 points. Still, Cope could secure the championship tonight if results go his way. However, with Hammer on form and the pace of many top five contenders such as Igor Kos; Danny Lee; and Patrik Thomsen looking ferocious, Cope will know to take nothing for granted!

In the Silver class, a determined drive from Chris Eddisford last week has seen him close the gap down championship leader Jeremy de Boever to 13 points. Yet, due to his phenomenal performances in the first half of the season, de Boever still holds a clear advantage over Eddisford. For Eddisford only back-to-back victories will do tonight, but with so many of his peers eager for their own taste of glory, will he be able to pull off this difficult feat?
