What’s the recipe for a perfect season finale? First, a ‘down to the wire’ title fight. Second, drivers who push their limits. And third, a legendary racetrack. Welcome to the ‘Grande Finale’ of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Virtual Edition.
There was much anticipation going into Rounds 7 and 8 of the series’ Virtual Edition. The showdown between #22 Ayhancan Güven (TUR/martinet by ALMÉRAS) and #25 Larry ten Voorde (NLD/Team GP Elite) promised unparalleled motorsport entertainment, and that’s exactly what they delivered. Istanbul’s Güven secured first place in the Qualifying Round, but moments after the race’s start, ten Voorde attacked. Meanwhile, exiting from the first chicane, #2 Dylan Pereira (LUX/BWT Lechner Racing) was also turning-up the heat. A narrow field chased behind, including Porsche factory driver #81 Nick Tandy (GBR/ExxonMobil Oil Corporation – Mobil 1) and Rookie #8 Leon Köhler (DEU/Lechner Racing Middle East). A tailor-made start.
