On behalf of our Centre, Carl Hazelton, Centre Principal competed in the Porsche Club Championship where he finished 8th in 2018 and then 9th in 2019.
After two years of competing, Carl and our race team looked forward to another season in 2020, however due to the unforeseen circumstances of last year, reluctantly we decided to take a year out. This pause in action was where Carl was introduced to the world of sim racing.
Sim racing has always been a competitive business, but 2020 was where it really became a lot more mainstream, in particular for those that were having to cancel real-world racing events. For Carl, sim racing has become one of his favourite hobbies, and this year, alongside his actual racing, he has also been competing in the Porsche Club Sim Championship, in a car branded up identically to our very own race car from the Centre.
Carl has two further sim races to go - on 19 May and 2 June. Both of these races can be watched live on the Sim Racers World website.
To keep up to date with the Porsche Club Championship, please visit our dedicated race page which is updated after each race. Carl will be taking part in the next round on the 5 June at Snetterton.

For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
