Therefore, we now developed the championship with more focus on the team and make it mandatory to participate as a team. With this, we raise the level and at the same time improve opportunities to associate sponsors, both for the teams and for the individual drivers, says Managing Director at ESR, Thor Alexander Qualmann.

Mikkel Gade, Danish Champion in Digital Motorsport

On Saturday evening, the Danish Championship in digital motorsport was decided at Østre Gasværk in Copenhagen at the Porsche Esport Carrera Cup Denmark. Due to Covid19 restrictions, only 10 drivers participated on location, while the rest drove from their homes. The national tv channel, TV 2 SPORT, broadcasted the event. 

On Saturday night he took the overall victory after two close races in the tenth round of the series, and he defeated the reigning Danish champion, Lasse Bak, while Martin Christensen finished as number three. The evening’s first race, which was held without spectators in Østre Gasværk, was an extremely close affair between the three favorites. Lasse Bak started in pole position, but Mikkel Gade made an early overtaking and won race 1, so the excitement was completely intact before the last race of the season.

In the decisive race of the season, the two teammates, Lasse Bak and Martin Christensen from Williams E-sport, drove together, which triggered a penalty and a deroute down the field to a 19th place for Lasse Bak. After this, Mikkel Gade’s path to the overall victory was paved, and he managed to stay ahead of his rivals all the way home to the overall victory.

With the victory and the title as Danish champion in Digital Motorsport comes a prize check of 50,000 danish kroner.

“I am just happy. Last year Lasse won, and it’s just cool that this year I stand with the Danish Championship. We always drive close, and we were all shown that we in Denmark have some of the fastest sim racing drivers in the world. It makes me extra proud that I can now call myself Danish champion, ”said Mikkel Gade after the final.

“In sim racing, it’s the talent that shines through, and that’s what makes you win. Not who has the greatest financial backing, as is sometimes the case in real motorsport. I’m just super happy. ”

Mikkel Gade has also this season taken part in the international series, Porsche Esport Supercup, which is considered the toughest series in sim racing.

Lasse Bak won 30,000 Danish kroner in second place, while Martin Christensen got 20,000 kroner for his third place.
