Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup 2020, Preview, Donington Park/Great Britain

Home race for six British sim racers at round three

The Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup contests its third race day of the 2020 season on Saturday, 23 May. Heading to the double-header event on the virtual Donington Park Circuit, the situation at the top of the leaderboard is particularly tense: with 103 points, Dayne Warren (Logitech G Altus Esports) moved into the lead after the second race day. Brian Lockwood (USA/RaceKraft Esports) lies in
second place just four points behind the Australian. Last year’s champion Joshua
Rogers (AUS/VRS Coanda Simsport) ranks third in the global Esports championship with 90 points. Max Verstappen (NL/Team Redline) is also showing strong form. At the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (Spain), the Formula 1 driver finished the main race in second place.

 

Six of the 40-strong field of top sim racers will tackle the Esports event on the storied British racetrack with a certain home advantage: Jack Sedgwick (Simucube ineX Racing), David Williams (VRS Coanda Simsport), Jamie Fluke (Apex Racing Team), Kevin Ellis Jr. (Apex Racing Team) and the two drivers of the Red Bull Racing
Esports squad, Graham Carroll and Sebastian Job, represent the colours of Great Britain.

 

At the Donington Park Circuit, the sim racers will contest a 15-minute sprint race and a 30-minute main race. In addition to the two races, the schedule includes a free practice, a qualifying session and a warm-up. Fans can watch the event live on the Porsche channels Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/porsche) and YouTube (https://youtu.be/S5OU0i1yxTY). The double-header event can also be viewed on these video platforms via iRacing.
