Porsche Esports Sprint Challenge Canada

Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd. is seeking the fastest 30 Canadian Sim Racers to race in an epic four event series. The Porsche Esports Sprint Challenge Canada will take place on iRacing.com using the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.   

 

Qualifying // Time Attack

Open qualifying is at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and Watkins Glen (available on the Beta UI). To enter, set your best times on each track from June 1 to 7 using the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport in the Porsche Esports Sprint Challenge Canada Time Attack session. The quickest lap time from each track will be added together for one total time and the fastest 30 drivers from Canada will move on to the race series. All qualifying and racing will be conducted with the vehicle in a fixed setup.

A note from iRacing.com and Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd.:

It has come to our attention that the latest software update has substantially changed the setup of the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR.
Our intention with the series is clear: a fair, competitive, and fun opportunity for all involved. With this in consideration, the Time Attack qualifying will be reset in an interest of integrity and ultimate fairness for all competitors.

The new fixed setup and Time Attack session will be available Wednesday, June 3, and the qualification will continue to end on June 7 as planned.

All the best on qualifying!
