Job Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup Winner Red Bull Ring

The 2022 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup sees job win the feature race at Red Bull Ring in iRacing.

Sebastian Job returns to winning ways in the feature races of the 2022 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup in iRacing at Red Bull Ring.

For Red Bull Racing Esports driver Sebastian Job, the 2022 Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup season had seen him score two sprint victories, but no feature wins, in the first four rounds of the season. He couldn’t have picked a better place to change that on Saturday, becoming the fifth different main event winner in five rounds to start the season at the Red Bull Ring, the Austrian track named for the ubiquitous sponsor of all things motorsport.

The win also enabled Job to jump to second in the standings, after faltering around the edge of the top 20 just a few short rounds ago. But unlike those sprint victories, the 2020 series champion wouldn’t lead from start to finish this time around; instead, he’d make the winning pass on R8G Esports driver Julien Soenen with three laps remaining. Soenen, who had led the first 17 laps of the race after sitting on pole thanks to the top-eight inversion, would eventually fall to sixth place in the feature after contact with Team Redline’s Diogo Pinto.

Pinto and Coanda Simsport’s Charlie Collins completed the feature podium, each completing strong race days of their own. Pinto continues to hold the points lead, which now sits at 38 points over Job, while Collins won the sprint race and scored an event-high 75 points. He jumped to fifth in the standings, within 10 points of teammate Zac Campbell for fourth and 30 back of Apex Racing Team’s Kevin Ellis Jr., the Barcelona race winner, in third.

In the All-Star race action, eNASCAR Coca-Cola iRacing Series star Casey Kirwan won his second feature event in a row, holding off defending series champion Emily “Emree” Jones by just .317 seconds in the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport. Kirwan and Jones came from the back two spots on the grid after finishing in the same spots in the sprint race. Tyson “Quirkitized” Meier continues to hold the series points lead by six over Jones after finishing third in the main event.
