We can’t wait - after a short breather, the qualifying rounds for the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup 2021 are about to begin. The top 20 drivers from last season have already secured their starting positions. For the 20 free places, we expect a hot qualification phase full of exciting motorsport action and decisive duels.
A flying start into the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup season 2021.
Ready. Set. Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup 2021.
The processors have barely cooled down. And while we are still coming down from the final in Monza, and the preparations for the next season of the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup are already well underway: the world's best simracers will be fighting for the coveted starting places from October to November 2020. Qualification is open to any simracer with an account on the iRacing platform. Who will secure their place in the new season? Is there a big surprise waiting for us?
The qualification process.
The Porsche iRacing Cup Series is the first hurdle on the road to the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup 2021. Those who can prove themselves here are already one step closer to the title. The Porsche iRacing Cup Series consists of 12 daily races – running from 20 October to 21 November. These races include a 2-lap qualifying and a lap-based race. At the end of each week, the top 30 simracers will be invited to race in that week’s Super Session, which take place every Saturday at 14:45 (GMT) on the track of that race week.
What to expect in 2021.
A big change for the new season is that the sprint and main races will be lap-based rather than time-based - as we have already seen in the rescheduled races in the Eifel and Le Mans. Another change concerns qualification. Previously, the starting grid of the sprint race was in reverse order from the qualification results. This reversed starting order will now be taken from the result of the sprint race for the main race so that the fastest simracers in qualifying can also start from the pole positions that they deserve. The number of races, the points system and the choice of car in the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup remains unchanged: in 10 races, the simracers in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup have the opportunity to fight their way to the top of the standings. TAG Heuer and Vodafone have already been confirmed as sponsors for next season, meaning that the prize money is once again $200,000. One more reason to leave it all on the virtual track in qualification.
The wait is over.
In January 2021, tune in to watch the world's best simracers compete in the new season of the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup, which runs until April 2021. #jointherace #simracing #nevernotracing
