Three-way title fight in the virtual Supercup to be decided at Monza

Who will be the first champion of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Virtual
Edition? This will be decided on Saturday (16 May) at the final round of the season at the Italian Autodromo Nazionale Monza. Three drivers fight for the overall trophy in the digital series of the Porsche Mobil1 Supercup. Leading the standings with 132 points, Porsche Junior Ayhancan Güven (TR/Martinet by Alméras) has excellent chances. However, his hottest rival, 22-year-old Larry ten Voorde (NL/Team GP Elite), sits just two points behind him. With 91 points to his credit, Dylan Pereira (BWT Lechner
Racing) from Luxembourg has an outside chance. A total of 50 points is up for grabs at the final races run on the iRacing online simulation platform. 34 drivers will tackle the event in their 485 hp Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racers.

 

“The six races so far have impressively underlined that the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup is gripping in its digital form, as well. We were able to offer our teams and drivers an attractive alternative to real competition. I’m delighted that the virtual Supercup has been embraced with great enthusiasm by all participants and I’m curious to see who will come out on top at the final round,” says Oliver Schwab, Project Manager of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup. In addition to the title, the winners of the virtual classes will also be decided: Heading to the Monza final, Leon Köhler (D/Lechner Racing Middle East) leads the rookie category and Marc Cini (AUS/Team Australia) ranks first in the ProAm class. Team GP Elite lies in first place in the team classification.
