Ramping up to the PESC Season 2023

Since its inception, the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup by iRacing has been the “champions league” of esports racing. Only the sim racing elite have what it takes to qualify for the 10-race PESC Series.

This fifth season promises to be just as action-packed as the previous seasons, with sim racers revving up their engines for the start of the PESC 2023 Season on the 4th of February. Once again, drivers will be competing in the renowned Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (992) in action-packed races on the most iconic, digitalised racetracks in the world.


10 races determine which drivers take home $200,000. Even with the glory of the championship title and a cash prize, there is more on the line for 30 of the best competing sim racers: The exposure and the honour of being called the very best. This championship is where they get to flex their racing muscles, where digital meets reality, rivalries meet head on, and concentration meets calculated risks. Who will have the skill and athleticism to see it through to the end and prove themselves?


The first battle is set to take place at one the world’s most iconic tracks, Hockenheim, on the 4th of February. The first of 10 exciting race weekends, that will take us all over the world and include world renowned tracks. We’ll be racing at Magny Cours (Feb. 18th), a yet-to-be-named track (chosen by popular vote) on the 4th of March and the Circuit of the Americas on the 18th of March. We’ll then move on to the Red Bull Ring – no joke – racing on the 1st of April, quickly followed by Watkins Glen (Apr. 8th) and then Spa (Apr. 22nd). For the month of May, we will be treated to Nürburgring on the 6th and Le Mans on the 20th. The excitement comes to a wild finale on the 3rd of June at none other than Monza in Italy, and from there, we will say arrivederci to the season, but ciao bella to our new champion!

Diogo Pinto is the defending Champion, but will he be able to stay ahead of the rest or does a newcomer have what it takes to steal the coveted crown and win the cash prize? Or perhaps it might be a previous winner. Will 2020’s champ Sebastian Job pose a threat, or could Pinto make a second win like 2021’s and 2019’s Joshua Rogers? Excitement and tension are in the air as we will find out who will race their way to the top of this global motorsport series.
