Yann Ehrlacher and Attila Tassi victorious in Slovakiaring Esport round
Lynk & Co Cyan Racing driver Yann Ehrlacher and Münnich Motorsport driver Attila Tassi were victorious as the Pre-season Esports WTCR Championship headed to the virtual version of Slovakiaring.
Ehrlacher had claimed pole position for the first race and headed the field from lights to flag as the others fought hard behind.
Esteban Guerrieri made his way past real-life reigning champion Nobert Michelisz to claim second position.
Niels Langeveld also managed to get past Michelisz at the very end of the race to finish third behind the wheel of his digital Audi RS 3 LMS.
The second race had Tassi starting from the reversed grid pole position. And the young Honda Civic Type-R TCR driver made a repeat of Ehrlacher’s performance in the first race to win the second race from lights-to-flag.
Mikel Azcona came home in second place after a strong first lap of the race where he passed Tiago Monteiro and Bence Boldisz.
Former championship leader and Hyundai driver Mat’o Homola claimed the final podium spot ahead of Guerrieri, who reclaimed the points lead.
Guerrieri heads the standings by four points from Homola and ten points ahead of Ehrlacher and Michelisz who share third position.
The next Pre-season Esports WTCR Championship event takes place at the virtual version of Ningbo on July 5th.
