For Spa-Francorchamps, we saw the new team XRL Esports (https://www.facebook.com/XRLEsports22) join the DPi class. Everyone was excited to see the pace of the new team. But altough the #48 crew are veterans in simulated endurance racing, they are new to PC racing, and a lot of things are new to the team and they need to work it out. The pace was there, but the consistency was a problem, so they ended up in third.
Second place was taken by the #17 Unison Racing crew with a solid effort by the drivers, who once again lifted the pace and stability. But they couldn’t hold a candle to the #18 Burst Esports SimPlexity crew. They took pole position and led the race from start to finish. The Cadillac DPi is a beast and it was a solid effort this weekend by all three DPi teams.
48 points is the gap between #18 Burst Esports SimPlexity and #17 Unison Racing. That sadly means that if the #18 crew show up at Le Mans, they will have secured the championship, as there are only five DPi cars in the championship and the points for fifth is 20 points, due to the double points at Le Mans. Second place is almost equally locked in, but there is still a real fight for third with only two points in it between #11 SEM9 Axle and #33 Team Adrenaline.
