Clash of the top 40.

On May 2, the best sim racers of the world will be buckling up in their simulators once more for the moment the virtual green light of the new season of the TAG Heuer Esports Supercup turns on.

It was a nerve-wracking struggle: The Porsche iRacing Cup qualification of the final 20 drivers was drawn out over 2 months and demanded all they had. Now, the starting field of the next edition of the TAG Heuer Esports Supercup has been defined. The 40 worldwide best sim racers are competing against each other once again this year – to hunt for points on the road to the championship. As usual, the field consists of the best 20 of the previous season, along with 20 newly qualified drivers.

Familiar faces.

Among the 40 drivers are some familiar returning faces: Participating beside the winner of the previous year, Joshua Rogers, is Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen. As some other drivers, he has come through against 5.000 participants of the Porsche iRacing Cup and can now compete for the title and a cash prize of 200.000 US dollar.

The whole championship consists of 10 events in the 2020 season. Each race day schedule includes 5 sessions: free training, followed by the qualifying, a 15-minute sprint along with a warm-up right before the 30-minute main event. Drivers can gain championship points during the sprint and the main event. The drivers’ platform will once again be the iRacing race simulation.

First stop on May 2 is the Circuit Park Zandvoort in the Netherlands. Surely this virtual circuit will call for all the skill the ambitious sim racers have to offer and promises a thrilling race. After all: the worldwide best sim racers are seated in the digital race cars.
