Racing Unleashed 2020 – Hattrick for dominant Michal Smidl (CZE)
The SimRacing season started into its third round this weekend. In the following we have news , highlight footage.
At the 3rd race of the season on August 23rd, a premiere took place:
For the first time ever at Racing Unleashed three racing lounges were interlinked. Thus, up to 16 pilots took part in the same race, but were driving in three different places: In Cham (Canton of Zug), Zurich and – the biggest lounge so far – Kemptthal (Canton of Zurich), all cities situated in Switzerland. Again, the participants are split in two leagues. The elite starts in the Racer League, those who still want to become the best in the Challenger League. This time the track was the virtual Silverstone Circuit (GBR).
Top favourite Michal Smidl (CZE) achieved the 3rd victory in a row and thus hattrick in the Racer League. The podium was completely in Czech colors with place 2 for Jiri Toman (CZE) and place 3 for Vojtech Polesny (CZE) oft he Czech „Varga Sim Racing Team“.
The second league – so-called Challenger League – was won by the German Phillip Baur. The 13-year-old Swiss talent Tina Hausmann from Küsnacht ZH (SUI) made the other pilots sit up with her first podium finish ever on rank 2.
The project is backed by former Formula 1 greats: Monisha Kaltenborn, for example, former Sauber team boss in Formula 1, is CEO of Racing Unleashed.
