Frederik Rasmussen has dominated the Porsche Pro Series Qualifiers all season long, however at round seven hew reached a landmark point in his simracing career.
After being the last driver to set a lap in qualifying, Rasmussen was still able to get pole in front of teammate, Sebastian Job.
Patrik Holzmann moved up from fourth to third at the first corner, overtaking Kamil Franczak.
At turn two, Laurin Heinrich made contact with Enzo Bonito, collecting many cars, whilst Laurin went flipping into the outside barrier.
Moritz Löhner was one of the few drivers to escape without damage from the incident, and after starting dead last on the grid he was able to gain an impressive fourteen places to get seventh place when the race was finished.
As the top four pulled away, Ayhancan Guven, Alexander Theibe and Jeremy Bouteloup were all fiercely battling for seventh place. Five minutes into the race, Bouteloup and Theibe made contact at turn one after Theibe moved under the braking zone. Both ran wide, loosing a few positions.
Theibe was in the wars once again and got hit into a spin at the esses with sixteen minutes left by David Williams. Theibe’s race ended, after many incidents.
With two and a half minutes left Kamil Franczak ran into the back of Holzmann at the turn eleven hairpin, sending Holzmann into a spin as Franczak continued. On the final lap, Franczak showed sportsmanship going into the final chicane, by letting Holzmann back past to reverse the positions.
Frederik Rasmussen crossed the line first once again, with Sebastian Job coming home behind him to get another G2 eSports one-two finish.
However the main talking point after the race was about Rasmussen, and him reaching 10,000 iRating, something that had only be done by Maximilian Benecke before. Since Frede’s rapid rise in form over the past two and a half years it’s been slowly creeping up and he finally reached the milestone.
When SIMSPORTNews asked him how it felt to reach the landmark after the race Frede said, “It feels good, but it’s just a number, you can farm the Mazda MX-5 and do the same, it doesn’t really matter what it is as long as you can make top split.”
