Varga Sim Racing is a tough competitor for the other teams in the class. And some controversy at the end of the race caused #17 Drillers Esports to initially cross the finish line as winners. This was however very quickly subject to investigation by race control and the result for the class was made preliminary. The controversy was caused by a penalty being assigned in the seconds before a driver change and the game therefore wrongfully assigning subtracting hefty six laps from the completed distance of the #117 car. Even more controversy was added when the initial server logs showed the #117 did not server a stop-and-go penalty before the end of the race, which they did in fact manage to do, but after the winning hypercar crossed the finish line. This led to the stewards and server manager using several days of close inspection of the recorded live stream, extra server logs and scrutineering of the possible events and explanations, before finalizing the result. Let’s not have this kind of nail-biting rules and error based post-race stuff decide any future races.
Outside all the drama of the leaders, #15 Deuces MotorSport Club secured their first podium finish.
