After six months and ten race rounds, the 2020 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup finally determined its winner on October 10: Sebastian Job has gathered the most points throughout the tournament and therefore places first in front of Joshua K Rogers and Alejandro Sánchez.
Six months of gripping racing-action
Having started in May, the Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup only came to a close last weekend on the legendary Monza circuit in Italy. Before its first round, over 5,000 drivers had taken part in the two and a half months long qualifying stages, but only 20 of them advanced to the actual competition. The other half of the 40 qualified drivers consisted of the 20 best racers from last year’s edition.
In the second season of the Supercup, last year’s champion Joshua Rogers was once again in a top position to take the title. However, he had to deal with fierce competition from the British driver Sebastian Job who had placed third in the 2019 season. Determined to better his record, Job was a worthy rival for the defending champion. Their duel was to be decided in the final race at Monza, but the conclusion came faster than expected: In the sprint race, Rogers was involved in a crash that put him way behind his opponent, so he had to settle for second place overall and concede the title to Job.
Racing prodigy Mitchell deJong placed 4th in the final race and 11th in the tournament overall. He therefore belongs to the twenty racers who have already qualified for next season. The 2021 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup has already been announced to begin on January 9, and competitors will once again race for a total prize pool of $200,000.
