On the first lap of the Porsche Esports Supercup race, last weekend at Barber Motorsports Park Frederik Rasmussen ran into the back of Maximilian Benecke at turn eleven of the opening lap of Sprint Race.
Benecke who was leading the race had Rasmussen inches away from his rear bumper before they hit. As soon as Benecke got onto the brakes Rasmussen ran into the back of him. Benecke held onto the car, but went across the grass, getting a slowdown and falling back to tenth place.
Benecke, who was not happy with the ruling said, “I saw him really close in the mirror so I tried to brake even later.” He also disagreed with the reason of the ruling, that said Rasmussen couldn’t see the braking point.
Benecke, like most drivers, want more professional stewards, that steward real-world events for big events like the Porsche Esports Supercup.
The Pure Racing Team driver wasn’t able to gain any of the lost positions and ended up in tenth place, seven seconds behind Rasmussen the eventual winner.
