This weekend will mark a milestone for Porsche as they launch the virtual edition of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup featuring the 2020 grid with some additional well-known guest drivers.

iRacing’s virtual version of Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will play host to the competition this Saturday (4 April) with a full race programme featuring Qualifying, Warm-up, and two 25-minute races.

“The Supercup is the pinnacle of Porsche’s one-make cups. I’m delighted that we’ve managed to come up with a great alternative under the current circumstances with no real motor racing. We have a top-class field and I’m very excited to see who’ll perform the best on a screen,” explained Oliver Schwab, Project Manager of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.

The entry list features eleven Supercup teams that were registered to take part in the real-life season before the Coronavirus outbreak and will see 22 drivers from the Supercup.

Joining them will be nine guest drivers including four Porsche works drivers Richard Lietz, Sven Müller, Nick Tandy, and Laurens Vanthoor fielded by App-Tech srl, Agility Management AG, ExxonMobil Oil Corporation and TAG Heuer SA.

Formula E title sponsor ABB will be backing factory driver Simona de Silvestro, while André Lotterer drives under the Hugo Boss AG banner.
