Porsche SimRacing Summit – A gathering of the world’s fastest SimRacers
Porsche and iRacing have partnered to create an eSports tournament where you can win a trip to the Porsche Factory in Leipzig Germany and compete for cash prizes totaling €30,000.

Online qualifying will be split into two portions utilizing iRacing’s Time Attack competitions. The first will begin on November 30, 2018, and run through December 3, 2018 at 23:59 GMT. The second Time Attack qualifier will run from December 5 through December 9 at 23:59 GMT. Two separate Time Attacks will give you an opportunity to prove you are one of the fastest virtual Porsche racers in the world.

The top 15 qualifiers from each Time Attack will be invited to compete live, at the Porsche Factory in Leipzig, Germany on December 15 and 16.

Prizes & Winnings
There will be a prize money pool of €30.000 and we developed exciting rules and regulations for the competition with three rounds of action-packed races. Of course, we will not only get into gear in the virtual world but also use the race circuit of Porsche Factory Leipzig to let you experience Porsche cars on the track.

  • 1st place: 15,000 € (7,500 € each)
  • 2nd place: 10,000 € (5,000 € each)
  • 3rd place: 5,000 € (2,500 € each)
