Turbulent weekend: Job amazes, mass crash at Spa

Job dominates at Porsche Supercup and a crash brings chaos to the SRO E-Sport GT Series.

Reading time: 3 minutes

A great success for Red Bull Esports driver Sebastian Job. In the third round of the 2020 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup in iRacing, he won both races at his home event at Donington Park Circuit on Saturday.

The sprint race was stacked with duels in the top three. Eventually, Job claimed first place and was followed by Alejandro Sánchez and Maximilian Benecke.

However, he barely took notice of any fights in the main race: he immediately took the lead and accomplished a lights-to-flag victory. Joshua Rogers finished second, which elevates him to the first place in the total standings. Sánchez made it to the podium again and finished third.

The current total standings in the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup 2020

  • Joshua Rogers from Coanda Simsport: 161 points
  • Sebastian Job from Red Bull Racing Esports: 155 points
  • Tommy Østgaard from Coanda Simsport: 135 points
  • Maximilian Benecke from Porsche24 Driven by Redline: 132 points
  • Alejandro Sanchez from MSI eSports: 126 points

There will be plenty of opportunities for the drivers to collect more points. Only three out of ten races have been completed. The fourth round of the 2020 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup will take place at Circuit de la Sarthe on June 13.

Mass crash at SRO E-Sport GT Series

On Saturday, the best Assetto Corsa Competizione drivers raced in Spa in the SRO E-Sport GT Series AM Championship. However, they had to deal with a wet track due to rainy weather.

Shortly after the start of the race, the complicated circumstances led to a mass crash. Russian Audi driver Mikhail Statsenko managed to get through the chaos and took the lead.

Even though Statsenko had to defend his position against fellow Audi driver Scorpati, he kept calm and took home a well deserved victory. With the successful race, the Russian climbed up to second position in the standings of the SRO E-Sport GT Series AM Championship. Porsche driver Samir Ibrahimi is in the lead now.
