Porsche Cup at Bahrain’s Outer Loop

To advance to the Semifinal, drivers need to conquer the Bahrain Outer Loop in their Porsche GT3 Cup 992 in rFactor 2. The top 60 of the Zandvoort Hotlap Qualifier were randomly assigned one of the three splits. 20-minute races in each of them determine the 30 Semifinal participants, as the top 10 of each split advance.

There, it will not get any easier: Only the top 7 plus the reigning champion Damian Skowron will be invited to race on-site at the Maastricht expo. The first step after the Hotlap Qualifier needs to be taken in the Sim Formula Europe 2024 Championship Quarterfinals – who is going to advance? Tune in at 8 pm CET to find out!

Lifelong motorsport enthusiast and sim racing aficionado, walking racing history encyclopedia. I have been working in sim racing since 2021 after previously working with pro and amateur sports teams and athletes for a daily newspaper in Wolfsburg. Nothing gets me more excited than motor racing, especially with the beastly machines of the past. A third pedal and h-shifter are not just options for a rig, they are mandatory to me. Avid fan of the IndyCar series (modern and CART/pre-split).
