Two qualifying competitions come together to form one big final: on Saturday, September 5, esports racers and real-life drivers pursue the title in the grand final of the Porsche Esports Carrera Cup. They chase a prize pool of €15,000 in a double header race held in RaceRoom.

Moritz Löhner dominates qualifying

More than 3,500 esports racers took part in four qualifiers on tracks around Europe. Only the eight fastest drivers of each qualifier secured a spot in the semi-final, forming a grid of 32 drivers. A double header race at Imola then determined 14 drivers to advance to the grand final of the competition. Especially German Moritz Löhner stood out in the semi-final, winning both races at the Italian circuit.


Independently from the esports racers, drivers from last year’s Porsche Carrera Cup Germany and Porsche Sports Cup Germany tried to qualify for the final as well. Six of them secured their entries and now have their eyes on the big cash prize. The real-world racers face off against the esports racers for the first and only time in the Porsche Esports Carrera Cup. Find the full line-up for the final race below.
