In addition to well-known professional racers such as Nico Bastian, Dirk Müller, Philip Ellis, Adam Christodoulou, Martin Tomczyk, and Philipp Eng as well as titleholder Bruno Spengler, a number of hybrid racers will be at the start in the top class SP9.


These included pilots who are at home in both real and virtual racing cockpits. Among them were Laurin Heinrich (Porsche Carrera Cup), Sami-Matti Trogen (RallyCross and NLS), Agustin Canapino (three-time champion of the Brazilian Turismo Carretera) and Jan Darschalkowski (ADAC GT4 Germany). They all share their GT3 cars with SimRacing professionals. This mixture promises best entertainment with hard position battles on the - also digitally - most beautiful and most demanding race track in the world. 

The teams in the top class SP9 are also colorful. BMW Bank, HRT and MANN-FILTER HTP-WINWARD meet the successful virtual racing teams Williams Esports, BS+COMPETITION and MAHLE RACING.

In addition to the GT3 and GT4 cars, vehicles in the Cup 2 (Porsche 911 GT3 Cup) and SP3T classes will be competing. In the Cup 911s, another hot battle between SimRC and Ascher Racing is expected. In SP10 CoRe SimRacing will defend the title against the virtual counterparts of Schnitzelalm Racing, WS Racing and Mühlner Motorsport as well as our KEEPONRACING-RN Vision STS SimRacing Team. In SP3T, there will be a new edition of the duel that accompanied the fans over many races in 2020: SimRC against CoRe. 

It's also worth being fast and to complete the five races in the 2020/2021 season without any special incidents, because for the evaluation cross-class points are awarded for the top 3 in the race, the pole position, the fastest race lap and the lowest iRacing-Incidents. The "German Payment Championship" honors the teams with the fewest penalty points.

The race runs over a distance of three hours and starts on Saturday afternoon at 1 pm. Before that, the positions on the starting grid will be taken in two separate timed practice sessions. The Livestream starts at 12:30 pm and can be accessed on www.VLN.de, YouTube, Facebook and twitch.tv.
