Tim Jarschel has taken the most hotly-contest crown on RaceRoom, and a share in a €50,000 prize pool, by becoming the 2024 DTM Esports Pro champion.

Heading into to title-deciding round at a virtual Hockenheimring, the Falken SimRacing team driver had 262 points, compared to G2 Esport’s Nikodem Wisniewski on 217.

As with each round this season, there was a 20-minute race and a 30-minute race, with a qualifying session for each.

Race 1​


For the opening race of the final round, it was BMW and Porsches dominating the top 10 grid slots, with Marko Pejic snagging pole, a scant 0.038s ahead of Isaac Price. Jarshel would line up third ahead of 2020 champion Moritz Löhner. Wisniewski would line up in sixth, just behind Gianmarco Fiduci.

At the start, Löhner made a trademark lightning start, sweeping around the field to take the lead. Contact between Jarschel and Fiduci sent the Italian spinning, allowing Wisniewski to draw alongside his championship rival – only to then be bump-drafted ahead by team-mate Jakub Brzezinski.

Having lost out at the beginning, Pejic tried to retake the lead but found himself on the outside of Price and then Wisniewski to drop to fourth. On the second lap, Price then let his fellow G2 Esports driver into second, while Leon Rudinger jumped Jarschel.

As the championship leader tried to fight back at the Sachskurve, the Porsche ran into the gravel and dropped to 12th – suddenly, the title battle was wide open. The Falken driver would drop to 15th by the race end.

Up front, however, it was Löhner who dominated to win for MOUZ.

Title protagonists Wisniewski and Jarschel would line up second and fourth respectively, split by Fiduci.

As the 30-minute encounter began, the top four positions remained the same until the seventh turn, where Wisniewski grabbed the lead.

Löhner and Jarschel elected to pit with just over 20 minutes remaining, the former undercutting Wisniewski to take back first.

Things looked to be stable, but with under five minutes remaining, contact between Fiduci and Wisniewski at the Spitzkehre allowed Kevin Siggy by into to second and Jarschel onto the podium.

Not that it really mattered for the championship anyway, as Jarschel was on target and crossed the line moments later to stand atop the dais.
