Racing Unleashed: Aston Martin eSportler wins

While Sebastian Vettel achieved Aston Martin’s best result of the season with sixth place in Baku, the British team is also successful in eSports. Newly signed Aston Martin sim racer Alejandro Sanchez wins the Brands Hatch race of the Racer League of the Racing Unleashed Championship – Beyond the Pinnacle.

“I had a lot of fun, but didn’t think it was possible to overtake on the track,” explains the winner from Spain, who started the race from tenth place. “With my pace, I tried to force the men in front to make mistakes. I managed that well,” reports the reigning champion from the lounge in Madrid.

Last year’s champion Alejandro Sanchez wins the Racing Unleashed Championship at Brands Hatch.

In the championship, however, he can no longer say a word. Reason: He had to miss two of the previous five runs. Behind Sanchez, the German sim racers Marc Gassner and Lorenzo Heyder complete the podium. Table leader Michal Smidl is fourth and takes 57 points ahead in the next challenge.

The Challenger League race also offered a lot of racing action and excitement. The pole setter, Dario Apa, was able to stay at the top for a long time. However, after a driving error, he slipped down to third place. “I lost the car on the exit of turn five. It was my own fault,” admits the driver from the Kemptthal lounge, who scored his first points with the podium.

A driver from the Munich Lounge joins one place further up. Janik Schmitt achieves his best result of the season. “That was a great race. I’m overjoyed and speechless,” said the German happily.

Sinan Demirbas, also a pilot in the Munich lounge, secures victory. With his success, he crawled up to eight points behind the leader of the championship, David Cid. Demirbas: “I never expected to be able to win at Brands Hatch. Consistency and patience were the key to success. You can’t force anything on the tight course.”

The next challenge is on July 30th and 31st. The Racing Unleashed drivers will then be out and about on the virtual circuit at Silverstone (GB). If you want to be at the race in England and fight for three-figure prize money in the Challenger League, you should visit the Racing Unleashed website.

For Fabian Vettel, sim racing is also elementary as a preparation for real motorsport.

Fabian Vettel could be a possible opponent. The brother of four-time Formula 1 world champion Sebastian is squinting to participate. “The next races are Silverstone, Spa and Barcelona. I know all the routes. I’m definitely interested in a guest start in the Challenger League,” reveals the 23-year-old.

For the native of Heppenheim, sim racing is also elementary as a preparation for real motorsport: “You can practice a course for as long as you want and have the time,” he emphasizes. “When you then get to the track in reality, you are much better prepared and can concentrate on other things.”

Racing Unleashed (click here for the homepage) – this is the racing series in which the drivers chase a virtual 2022 Formula 1 model around the racetracks in high-performance simulators.

46-inch screens with a panoramic view and carbon fiber cockpits with an integrated sound system make the races in the racing lounges at various locations in Germany, Switzerland and Spain an almost real Formula 1 experience.
