Red Bull Racing Esports driver, Sebastian Job took his second double win in a PESC round, and on home soil for the second time. The Brit led every lap in the third round after overtaking Alejandro Sánchez at turn one in the sprint race.
Job was one of the drivers to recover from a disappointing round 2 after a crash early on, Josh Rogers was another, and set the fastest lap in qualifying for the second time this season. A fifth-place finish in the sprint race allowed the VRS Coanda Simsport driver to overtake Sánchez for second in the feature race, however he wasn’t able to close the gap to winner Job before the 30-minute timer ran-out.
Australian rookie, Dayne Warren went into the round leading the championship after consistency in the first two rounds of the season. His form wasn’t continued at Donnington, after hitting Holzmann at the chicane, both spun into the barrier and continued. Warren had much more damage to his car after a second incident a few laps later. This left him at the back of the grid for the feature race, where he recovered to 21st to get just five points.
Warren, who drives for Altus Esports is now sitting in 6th place in the championship, 45 points off of leader Joshua Rogers on 161 points, who is six ahead of Sebastian Job in second.
Holzmann however, ended the sprint race in 29th, the round didn’t get much better for the third Red Bull Racing Esports driver, Graham Carroll who was also involved in a crash and finished in 36th place. Both were able to recover well in the feature, with Carroll finishing 17th and Holzmann in 25th.
VRS Coanda Simsport had a strong round with David Williams and Ricardo Castro Ledo finishing in the top ten in both races, improving on pace shown in previous rounds.
After the race, winner Job said, “Things really fell into place this weekend, I was very fortunate to qualify on the front row. Getting into first place from the start was great and there was no looking back, I just had to grind out the consistent laps.
“During practice I was struggling to follow the other cars, so I was praying that I would lead the race because that’s where I can show my pace. It’s a very difficult track to drive in the Porsche, the way it handles over the chicanes means that you have to hit it at the perfect angle otherwise you will lose a tenth.”
The fourth round of the series will come from the Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans. Drivers will be looking for as much straight-line speed, a lot of slipstreaming will be expected, potentially mixing the order up a bit and bringing us a different winner than the last three rounds.
