Love, Evans, De Silvestro and Cini to line-up for virtual Porsche Supercup season

Four drivers well known to Australians will line-up for the 2020 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Virtual Edition, which begins this weekend. 

Porsche Junior Jaxon Evans, 2019 Porsche PAYCE Carrera Cup Australia champion Jordan Love, former Supercars Championship driver and now Porsche Formula E test driver Simona De Silvestro and Carrera Cup Australia veteran Marc Cini will all be part of the online iRacnig championship.

The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup Virtual Edition is ready to tackle its first-ever virtual season with an impressive line-up of 31 drivers. VIP vehicles driven by well-known professional racers will join the teams and drivers that have officially registered for this year’s real Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season. The season takes off this Saturday (4 April) with a double-header event on the virtual version of the Spanish Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

“The Supercup is the pinnacle of Porsche’s one-make cups. I’m delighted that we’ve managed to come up with a great alternative under the current circumstances with no real motor racing. We have a top-class field and I’m very excited to see who’ll perform the best on a screen,” said Oliver Schwab, Project Manager of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.

The eleven Supercup teams compete with a total of 22 drivers, among them the two Porsche Juniors Jaxon Evans (NZ/Momo Megatron Lechner Racing) and Ayhancan Güven (TR/Martinet by Alméras).
