Round 7 of the iRacing Road Pro Series was held at the infamous Spa Francorchamps with Frederik Rasmussen starting on pole once again for Core Simracing, and Apex Racing Uk’s Michael Dinkel in Core Simracings sandwich which had Sebastian Job Behind him. As the lights went out Alex Simpson got the best start from fourth on the grid and then battling with Riccardo Orozco going into Eau-Rouge, but Simpson had to concede the position for turn 2 and then get it back with a lot of momentum on the Kemmel Straight. Then going into Les Combes Sebastian Job got past the lead Apex car of Michael Dinkel into second place. Six corners later Bobby Zalenski, the privater, had a tank slapper mid way through the corner. Then entering Stavelot David Williams got hit by Josh Thompson who made a ‘clumsy’ move to the inside of the track sending the number five car spinning into the inside wall quickly and out of the race.

It was a full grid at Spa for round 7

Then on lap seven Riley Preston pulled off an amazing move around the outside of Tommy Ostgaard at Blanchimont. Suddenly 12 laps into the event Job got a tank slapper on the exit of Raidillion, heading fast into the outside barrier backwards, and then rolling the car, putting him out of the event, and having high chances of not getting a seat in the World Championship Series for the second straight season in a row. The first planned pit stop of the race came from

There was a late race battle between Alex Simpson and the blisteringly quick Ricardo Orozco in the second stint. Orozco wanted to go for a move down the inside of Simpson entering Les Combes after some DRS assistance on the Kemmel straight but was not close enough, with two laps to go Orozco gave it another crack going into Les Combes again, but this time with a much smaller gap and more ERS, he got alongside Simpson on the outside but couldn’t keep his car alongside the Apex Racing UK car throughout the corner.

Going into Pouhon on the last lap Diogo Oliveira had a half spin on the exit, just two laps after letting his teammate, Boris Spoelstra through. Spoelstra went to the right, but Oliveira span to the right, collecting his teammate and taking them both out of the event.

Rasmussen dominated throughout the event

Then Orozco made his move on Alex Simpson, but Alex got the position back on the same lap going into Les Combes, using his setup to his advantage. Rasmussen went on to dominate and win the race by 20 seconds.
