Round 9 - Suzuka

Tonight marks Round 15 of Season 7 of UKSimRacing’s Porsche Cup as hosted on iRacing!

It is time for the season finale, and where better to bring all of the action to a close than the infamous Suzuka circuit? Located in the Mie Prefecture of Japan, this track is best known visually for its iconic figure of eight layout which sees its back straight pass over the midpoint of the lap. Within its 3.6 mile length is an awe-inspiring array of 17 corners, many of which are household names. Whether it be the tricky “First Turn”; the hard-fitting “Degners”; or the confidence challenging “130R”, there will be plenty to watch out for lap after lap as our drivers take on the track that has been the crown jewel of many a motorsport champion!

In the Gold class, with a double-podium last week at Silverstone, Thomas Cope has secured the championship. Now attention turns to the battle for the runner up spot with Philipp Hammer holding an 18 point advantage over Patrik Thomsen. Hammer is undoubtedly the favourite to take second, but with Thomsen eager to make it a championship one-two for Olympus eSports Vanguard, he will not be taking anything for granted!

In the Silver class, eight points separate championship leader Chris Eddisford; Jeremy De Boever; and Adam Greveson, in a battle that is finely poised. All three drivers have had phenomenal performances throughout the season with Eddisford’s and Greveson’s late charges in the second half of the season contrasting with De Boever’s once runaway lead in the first half. However, who will take the final step and claim the ultimate prize?
