It was a banner day for Red Bull Racing Esports on Saturday at Autodromo Nazionale Monza, as Graham Carroll and Sebastian Job went 1-2 in the final feature event of the 2020 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup season. Job’s runner-up finish was enough to lock down the championship over defending series champion Joshua Rogers of VRS Coanda Simsport, claiming the largest share of a $200,000 series purse and becoming the first British driver to score an individual iRacing series title.

“It’s not sunk in, to be honest,” Job admitted after the checkered flag. “I’ve been dreaming to be able to do something like this since I started iRacing, but I never thought it would be possible. I saw the Huttus and Kronkes winning and I thought ‘I’d love to race against those guys someday,’ but I never thought I’d be a champion. It’s beyond words.”

Rogers and Job were the only two drivers eligible for the championship coming into the finale, although the Australian’s deficit was large enough to almost require DNFs from Job in both the spring and feature. Instead, they qualified first and second, putting them together on Row 4 in the sprint race after the eight-car invert. Both drivers were involved in the same incident in the sprint race, but Job recovered to fifth while Rogers limped home to a disappointing 24th.

The early stages of the feature saw Red Bull and Coanda drivers battling for the lead, although they weren’t the two drivers that fans may have expected coming into the race. Carroll, who won the sprint race, faced off with Tommy Ostgaard in the early laps, with Job also forcing his way into the mix. Ostgaard would lead two laps and Job would steal one, but Carroll held the point for the rest of the 17-lap feature, reclaiming the lead for good on Lap 15.

Prior to the Supercup feature, the Porsche Esports Sprint Challenge wrapped up its 2020 season with a Super Session of its own at Monza. Apex Racing Team’s Peter Berryman won the battle, but Williams Esports’ Moreno Sirica won the war, clinching the season-long championship with a fourth place finish.
