The name alone is enough to evoke associations amongst motorsport fans from all over the world. Of glorious victories, bitter defeats and daring head-to-head races. One thing is clear: the Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans is regarded as hallowed ground in the world of racing.
The first 24 Hours of Le Mans was held in 1923. With long straights, super-fast corners and highly technical chicanes that demand top driving performance – Le Mans was soon established as the ultimate challenge of man and machine.
No wonder the drivers of the 2022 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup inevitably find themselves there too. Shortly before the end of the season, at the penultimate race, the tension still rises.
At 36 points, Diogo C. Pinto has a decent lead in the standings over Kevin Ellis Jr. in second place. It is, however, anybody’s race.
With current third place Sebastian Job closely followed by Zac Campbell and Charlie Collins – they’re all still in with a good chance of winning the coveted title.
One thing we already know: the chances of a real showdown in the Monza final are high. How close it will come will be decided on Saturday in the livestream – starting with the All-Star race at 5:30 p.m. UTC on the official Porsche Twitch channel and YouTube.
