Time to race: the Grand Final of the Porsche Community Legends.

It’s time for the Grand Final of the Porsche Community Legends. What started out as a daring idea on a blank sheet of paper has developed into a great simracing competition in the last few weeks. With more than 11,000 participants, the Porsche Community Legends have proven to be a complete success. After 3 Weekly Finals, the last participants have now been determined for the final race day on 19 May. In addition, the community voting on the Porsche Instagram channel decided which racing car will compete in the final. In a close wheel-to-wheel fight, the 962 C triumphed over the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

Lots of highlights in the final.

In the 3 spectacular Weekly Finals the following participants qualified for the final round:

In the first week, Bence Bánki, Jack Keithley, Moritz Löhner, Marc Gassner and Emre Cihan prevailed at the Hockenheimring in the Porsche 911 GT3 R.

The second Weekly Final in Silverstone was held with the Porsche 964 Cup. The five finalists from this round are: Tim Jarschel, Leandro Werle, Kevin Siggy, Nikodem Wisniewski and Kirill Antonov.

The last Weekly Final, driven by the 911 RSR in Spa-Francorchamps, saw the following participants going into the final round: Erhan Jajovski, Jakub Brzezinski, Jonas Wanner, Adam Pinczes and Marko Pejic.

A highlight of the Grand Final is that the 15 drivers are joined by 3 Porsche works drivers. Matt Campbell, Richard Lietz and Julien Andlauer will provide a lot of action on both race tracks of the final.

As in the Weekly Finals, selected influencers will also participate in the Grand Final: Super GT, Dave Gaming, rAii (DiePixelHelden), FailRace, Jardier, GamerMuscleVideos, Abgefahren! and Heikki360ES.

The Porsche GT driver and two-time Le Mans winner Earl Bamber is the icing on the cake in this who’s who of virtual and real racers. As a commentator, he will guide the spectators through the two final races.

Two race tracks. Two racing cars. The anticipation is huge.

The final is a double race: the participants will first compete against each other on the Grand Prix Track of the Nürburgring in the Porsche 911 GT3 R. Directly after that we switch to Italy. In Monza, the competitors show what they can do with the venerable Porsche 962 C.

Great prizes for the winners of the final race.

The first 3 places of the final will win these prizes:

  • Top 3: Podium Porsche Wheel 911 GT3 R + Podium Wheelbase DD1

  • Top 2: Podium Porsche Wheel 911 GT3 R + Podium Wheelbase DD2

  • Top 1: Podium Porsche Wheel 911 GT3 R + Podium Wheelbase DD2 + V3 Pedals
