Sim Racing Series shines at Silverstone!
Round 6 of the Racing Edge SimRacing Series Season 2…
Watch the entire stream from Silverstone - including practice, qualifying and race sessions - in the YouTube video above.
You can watch the Silverstone track guide with race host Morad here:
In the RSR GTE category, championship leader Alex Simonic had plenty of backing from his Simucube teammates Dekota Fripp and newcomer Phil Denes. But could Kaden Bihn and Morad keep up their title challenge?
Would Fripp recover from a one-race suspension to clinch the $125 top prize? You’ll have to watch the video to find out!
In the GT4 category, standings leader Andrew Waring was handed a big boost in his quest for the title. His two nearest challengers in Sam Fellows and Michael Moorley were both absent.
Could Waring make it five wins in a row? Or would pole sitter Thomas Cope and Michael Broomhead take the $70 winning prize?
