The 2021 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup is about to go into its third season. The kickoff on January 9 will also feature another All-Star Race with some of the most well-known esports racing content creators.

Many names should already be known to the loyal OverTake viewer, because they competed in the latest iteration of Clash of Racers II. Namely Jimmy Broadbent, Emily Jones, Jaroslav ‘Jardier’ Honzik, Maxime MXM, James ‘Gamermuscle’ West, Mathieu ‘rAii’ Wacker and Aarmir ‘Cyanide’ Thacker.
From now on, the All-Star races will be a constant addition to the racedays of the Porsche Tag Heuer Esports Supercup. Every round, before the PESC takes to the grid, the content creators and a special guest will battle each other on the track. So in total, there will be ten rounds of the All-Star race. The drivers on the podium places will be able to give out iRacing credit as prizes to their community.
Each All-Star round will feature a qualifying session and two races. While qualifying determines the first race’s grid position, the second race will be held in reverse-grid format. The All-Star races will always start at 5:30 UTC.
While the first three races will be held in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup racing car, the following rounds will feature the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR and the Porsche 911 RSR as well.
The special guest for the first round will be Porsche’s factory driver Matt Campbell. The Aussie is a known name in the endurance scene and also a former Le Mans winner.
