The third round of the 2021 Endurance eRacing World Championship at Sebring International Raceway started out to be a complete thriller between both the LMP2, GTE and GT3 class of cars – as many teams nearly had even points and the excitement was at its highest. The Hypercar class was though completely ruined as Omicron Simracing choose to leave the class and not being part of the Sebring Race. That made it an easy win for Drillers eSport which basically only had to complete the race.
It also lead to GTR24hs understanding that the Hypercar class unfortunately is so unpopular between teams – that nobody really wants to drive it these days. That means the Mclaren Senna HyperCar class will now be exchanged to the Cadillac DPI-V.R from now on and new teams will be invited into competing in the series. Its a bit unfortunate that Studio 397 didn’t help the class to succeed more – by introducing more cars and making it easier for teams to setup it up. The Hypercar really didn’t get the foothold it surely needed. With our goodbye to the Hypercar class and the introduction to Cadillac DPI-V.R, we hope the new car will make more teams sign up. So it’s no surprise that Drillers eSport leads the championship and will take half its points to the new series – so new teams have a change to spoil it for Drillers eSport in the end at LeMans.
Moving on to the LMP2 Class – #117 Varga Simracing did yet again showed superiority at Sebring and the team seems to be untouchable in both Performance, Stability and strategy – which seems to work very well for the team – which made the team take another win at Sebring International Raceway with a 5 laps lead. We were though more surprised by 95 DEAC HACKERS moving up from the list of teams taking 2. position and even more surprisingly #15 Deuces MotorSport took a podium place with the youngster of 15 and 17 years of age. That leads us to think that Deuces MotorSport Club drivers have a long career in Simracing in front of them as they manage to compete in the top.
The GTE class started out to be one exciting run already in Qualifying as the #74 Deuces MotorSport took pole position followed by #51 WOSR iZone Performance and #53 Musto GD eSports – both the #53 Musto GD eSport and #74 Deuces MotorSport Club could hold their position as 51 WOSR iZone Performance managed to take the win and surprisingly #54 Musto GD eSport moved up in the field and the last podium place was taken by #74 Deuces MotorSport.
Lastly in the GT3 class – the superiority showed by Unison Racing throughout Round 1 and 2 – wasn´t seen after the recent BOP(Balance of Performance) update by Studio397 making the team fight more with Aston GT3 – Unison never really managed to get the speed to compete in the top of the field and lost time during the race at Sebring. That made surprisingly the 26 OneMove Esport team take the win in the Ferrari 488GT3 – followed by 22 Mugen Simracing and 717 Unison Racing which still made the podium.
The recent BOP released surely made an impact on the team’s strategies and speed as we saw teams that normally was left behind is now moving up through the field. That will definitely make the season even more exciting and maybe more even in the next coming Nürburgring Grand Prix in June.
