E-Sport GT Series Set For Kylami Title Decider. (20.06.20)

The SRO E-Sport GT Series, organised by SRO Motorsports Group following the suspension of sporting activities during the pandemic, reaches its season finale at Kylami on June 21.

48 cars will be on the grid for the Pro contest with four drivers all within reach of the title. Louise Deletraz, at the wheel of the #12 GPX Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R heads the standings on 59 point after a win in the previous round at Barcelona and a second place at the Nürburgring.

Lorenzo Marcucci is ten points behind the Swiss driver, a win in Round two at Spa-Francorchamps and a second place at Barcelona means that the #188 LP Racing Audi R8 LMS Evo pilot needs to finish in fourth place or higher, with Deletraz out of the points, if he is to secure the title.

“My only aim is to win this race,” said Lorenzo Marcucci, speaking to EnduranceandGT. “I have to do it to try and win the championship. I think the car is fast despite of the extra weight. I’ve raced with Audi in Kylami a few months ago and I have worked with my team to prepare a good set-up for the race.

“Now we only have to see wait and see how ready we are!”

#99 2 Seas Motorsport McLaren 720S GT3 pilot Ben Barnicoat is third in the standings on 43 points, a win at the Nürburgring by less than a tenth of second ahead of Deletraz’s Porsche and a second place at Silverstone giving the McLaren Customer Racing Factory Driver the opportunity to challenge for the inaugural E-Sports GT Series title.

Fourth in the Pro standings, and on 36 points, is Ivan Pareras in the #5 Phoenix Racing Audi. The young Spaniard will be looking for his first win in the series after a second place finish in Round Two at Spa.

The top 20 Pro and Silver drivers following the Kyalami round will be invited to compete in a grand finale, the date and location of which will be announced shortly.

Coverage of the final rounds of the 2020 SRO E-Sport GT Series begins at 13:45 CET across social media channels.
