Rennsport Update Adds Porsche Cup Road to Hockenheim


After a teaser earlier in the week, Rennsport‘s newest car will be added to the platform on 22 September. As predicted, it will in fact be the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car.

As was predicted by many within the community, the car that Rennsport teased was in fact the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. The car is used in spec series which act as a jumping-off point for many hopeful sportscar racers.

The car will be added in an update over the course of 22 September. Providing you have access to the Rennsport beta, keep checking the Epic Games Store for an update around 9pm CEST.

Porsche Cup Rennsport: Road To Hockenheim

Along with the introduction of the 911 GT3 Cup car to Rennsport, a new competition starts on the platform. On 22 October, the final round of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland will be held at the Hockenheimring. This also coincides with the final rounds of the DTM and ADAC GT Masters seasons.

Dubbed the ‘Porsche Esports Carrera Cup Challenge Road to Hockenheim’, it takes the form of a hotlap time trial. From 22 September until 5 October, the competition will be available through Rennsport‘s own competition system. The sessions open up multiple times a day under the name ‘PECCC – Road to Hockenheim’.

It is open to drivers who are a minimum of 18 years of age, and are a registered citizen of a European country.

After the competition ends, the top three drivers will be invited to Hockenheim on the weekend of 22 October. They will have taxi rides, a paddock tour, get to meet the drivers competing in Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland, and go on a grid walk.

If you are interested in competing but still do not have access to Rennsport‘s Closed Beta, you can sign up to the waitlist here. Keys are also handed out on the ESL R1 broadcast, so tune in tonight from 7pm CEST on the official Twitch and YouTube channels to try your luck!
