The gripping dual between Larry ten Voorde and Ayhancan Güven heads into the next round – and we’re holding our breath.
WOW! What an unbelievable Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Virtual Edition race day last Saturday at Silverstone. If anyone knows how to ‘park it’ in a slipstream directly behind the leader, it’s Larry ten Voorde. For an unprecedented 22 Minutes he rode his nose directly up against the diffuser of Ayhancan Güven’s martin by Alméras 911 GT3 Cup, drawing us deeper into a virtual stand-off.
For most of the Virtual Edition’s third and fourth rounds it was unclear who would be going home with the win. During Race 3, ten Voorde held the pole position until just before the finish his own braking error opened the door for Ayhanacan who shot past, pushing ten Voorde aside. Luckily the flying Dutchman managed to get back on track, finishing the race in 2nd position. A perfect starting situation for an epic battle of both drivers in race 4.
