Racing stars: the participants of Porsche Community Legends.

The Porsche Community Legends is well underway. Almost 2,000 motorsport fans, Porsche enthusiasts, semi-professional and professional SimRacers, and other petrolheads are fighting in time trials for a place in the weekly final races. Time to take a closer look at the starting field.As you can see, the name says it all: both the community in all its breadth as well as real legends can be found on the grid. For one thing, there are amateur racers. Participants who don’t yet have much racing experience – perhaps it’s even their first race. For them, it is a special experience to share the track with real professionals. And there are plenty of them. Because at the Porsche Community Legends, the who’s who of the SimRacing scene, so to speak, is on the starting line. For example, Steve Alvarez Brown, better known as “Super GT”. It’s under this name that he produces successful YouTube content, mostly around Gran Turismo sport, for hundreds of thousands of fans. Or Ralf "Abgefahren!" Hauser, a real RaceRoom veteran who inspires his fans by streaming RaceRoom races. Hauser will meet "rAii", known for his channel DiePixelHelden, and "Dave Gaming", two successful and well-connected SimRacing content creators, with whom he has competed against in community races in the past.

And then there’s Jaroslav Honzik, better known as “Jardier”. Also active on YouTube, the Czech is the winner of the last RaceRoom VIP races, and due to his many years of SimRacing experience he is probably one of the fastest drivers on the grid.

After the first weekly final, the winners can hope for victory – and for the main prize: Bence Bánki, Jack Keithley, Moritz Löhner, Marc Gassner and Emre Cihan have qualified for the finale on 19 May.In addition to fame and glory, they are also striving for a brand-new SimRacing hardware set-up – consisting of the Podium Wheel, of course in the GT3 R configuration, the Podium Wheel Base DD2 and the V3 pedals. These prizes provided by our cooperation partner Fanatec are the gold standard in SimRacing. You could say it’s the Porsche of gaming equipment. The fight for it should be just as hard – so it's worth watching. Watch live at the following times:

  • Weekly final Spa-Francorchamps: 12 May – 19:25 CEST

  • Finale on the track chosen by the community: 19 May – 19:25 CEST

Always on the official Porsche YouTube and Twitch channels.
