At the hands of the eSPORTS+CARS line up, driver David Hoch secured the inaugural CJ Wilson Racing Cayman Cup. The competition, presented by Logitech G, went to a thriller in which Hoch beat rival Evan Thorogood.

The pair, who are also team-mates, have collected a number of strong results this season, with Thorogood’s (aka Raceboy77) consistency proving to be his strongest asset. He eventually collected nine top five finishers with seven podiums.

As for champion Hoch (aka LMR Harmonic,) he collected four victories over the season. A record by any driver in a championship run by The Online Racing Association (TORA) on the Forza Motorsport 6 platform.

Champion, Hoch was pleased with the racing shown in the category. “This is the most competitive series I’ve ever done. A lot of guys who normally don’t race in championships like this got their feet and entered the series so it was interesting to see some new faces who were veterans on the Forza Motorsports platform, but new to TORA events.”

The championship was eventually wrapped up at the Virginia International Raceway, in what was the penultimate round of the season.

“CJ Wilson and his team should be congratulated on pulling together a strong virtual championship that continues to improve the professionalism of online racing,” eSPORTS+CARS Team Principal, Darren Cox said.

“Initiatives like this go a long way to help introduce esports and virtual racing to a mainstream audience. Both our organisations are very aligned in this goal and objective.

I congratulate the guys on their performances, which were by any measure, dominant. We’ll be looking forward to coming back in 2017 to defend our championship win and work together with CJ and his team to continue to grow the sport,” Cox concluded.

“Virtual racing is a huge and growing category and we have been completely blown away from the response and the talent displayed in the TORA Cayman Cup series,” explained Team Owner, CJ Wilson. “With the costs of actual on track development remaining outside the realm of most young drivers, to be able to log on and race with other incredibly talented eSports racers is a huge work-around for them.”
