Following eight closely contested rounds, two drivers head into the ninth and final round of the 2020 iRacing Rallycross World Championship with a realistic shot at the title. The hot favorite is current points leader Jon Robertson.
Team Yokohama’s Robertson has shown the consistency needed to capture the iRX crown throughout the season. His team-mate Yohann Harth sits ten points adrift and has two feature race wins to Robertson’s one.
The championship visits the virtual Sonoma Raceway for the second time this season. Last time, Harth won and Robertson completed a one-two for the Yokohama team.
The squad needs just one point to secure the teams’ championship, while 2018 series champion Mitchell deJong (Subaru Motorsports USA) and SET Esports’ Tommi Hallman have an outside shot of stealing the title. However, both will likely need to win every race they compete in, and hope Roberston and Harth face severe misfortune.
You can follow all of the action from the finale on Saturday, December 5, at 5 PM CET on iRacing’s YouTube channel.
Final GT Sport World Tour Qualifier
Following qualifying events for the EMEA and Americas regions, gamers in the Asia-Oceania region will now get their chance to book a spot in the finals of the FIA Gran Turismo Championships 2020 Series.
16 competitors from the region – who qualified via a time trial event – will compete across three races. The top three will progress through to the finale, which will combine sim racers from all of the regions. Japanese driver Takuma Miyazono has already claimed one of the spots in the final, after he beat Cody Latkovski in a thrilling photo finish in Sydney in the as-of-yet sole World Tour event earlier this year.
The final of the three races is worth double points, which helped Spaniard Coque Lopez claim a shock win in the EMEA region qualifier. You can watch the Asia-Oceania Regional Finals live on Gran Turismo TV, the games official YouTube channel, on Sunday, December 6 at 5 PM CET.
Joshua K Rogers closes on Supercars crown
The Autralian sim racing star Joshua K Rogers looks set to add the Repco Supercars Pro Eseries title to his ever-expanding trophy cabinet. Rogers has dominated the season so far, earning victories in seven of the 14 races. This 50% win rate has earned the Coanda Simsport driver a comfy championship lead ahead of the final three races.
Dayne Warren is Rogers’ nearest championship rival, but he sits some 94 points adrift of the point leader. He’d require a miracle to prevent the Australian from capturing the Supercars Pro Eseries crown. Rogers is also in fine form, after winning the second round of the VCO ProSIM SERIES:
Redemption 💪🏼 Awesome to get the monkey off the back at my favourite circuit 🤙🏼 There’s just something about throwing a car around this circuit that never gets old 😍 Mega drive from @AyhancanGuven to bring the car home in the end 🔥— Josh Rogers (@JKRogers_92) November 25, 2020
