The esports world perked up when
After successfully passing the qualifying phase, 40 sim racers will continue to 10 main races. These will take place over the course of 5 months against the backdrop of reknown race circuits. The winner will be taking home the $100,000 prize pool. But until then, participants have to pass 3 phases within each event: the qualifying, a 15-minute sprint and a 30-minute main race. To create additional tension, the top 8 drivers from qualifying will start the sprint in reverse order. The result of the sprint race determines the starting grid of the main race. Championship points are awarded for qualifying, sprint and main race.
The premiere of the
The next race followed on April 27 on the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Ohio. The exciting race shone with numerous highlights and some accidents in the fiercly contested main field. In the end, German Martin Krönke of Team VRS Coanda Simsport took the lead and won the main race after already winning the sprint.
There’s no doubt that the

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
