EEWC championship permeations heading into Le Mans

All four categories are still up for grabs in the Endurance eRacing World Championship this weekend as we head to Le Mans for the final round. It has been a varied season in all classes, with the DPI class only being two races old and the LMP2 battle still a mystery. But one thing remains, it will be an entertaining finale to watch.

In DPI, Satellite Racing currently has a stronghold of the top two places in the standings 1-2, where both cars are separated by 14 points. There are still 54 points available, so if the trailing #65 car takes pole, then a win for either team would guarantee a championship win.

Viadukten and Axle Sports are still mathematically involved, but since they are 21 and 41 points behind respectively, it’s hard to see them turning things their way. The real mystery is Rookie Monsters, as while they can’t take the title, they could take points off main championship contenders and change the fight at the front.

Despite Varga Simracing’s dominance, LMP2 is still a mystery. The team hasn’t raced since the Nürburgring 12 Hours, and there are question marks over whether they will take part in the final race of the season. They have a 27 point lead, so if they don’t participate, then the championship will be thrown wide open.

Deuces Motorsport Club, MUGEN Simracing, and Ramada Motorsport would all seal the title with a Le Mans victory, and there would now be seven teams in with a chance of taking the season’s top honours. The battle, as ever, very much depends on Varga.

GTE is arguably the closest and most intriguing battle of them all. Musto GD-eSports and WOSR iZone Performance will be fighting it out, and only 13 points separate them coming into the finale. If Musto can take pole on Friday, then a 2nd place would be enough for them to secure the spoils. However, if WOSR or anyone else Qualify in P1, then a victory would seal it for both. Despite four teams being in mathematical contention, it seems like a two-horse race.

Finally, in GT3 we also have a clear two-car race emerging, as Unison Racing leads MUGEN Sim Racing by 20 points after five of the six races. If Mugen can take pole, then Unison needs to finish in the top two to take the title, but if they don’t, then a podium will do. Once again, there are two more teams who have a theoretical chance, but it’s really unlikely. Plus, to add extra excitement, Unison Racing has had a slow start to the week of Le Mans, as they seem to be struggling to get accustomed to the Aston Martin.

The scene is set for the finale. 24 hours to decide the Endurance eRacing World Championship titles for 2021.
