Rogers Ends Dominant Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup Season With Monza Victory

Rogers Ends Dominant Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup Season With Monza Victory

Saturday’s Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup season finale at Autodromo Nazionale Monza was, when all was said and done, almost a perfect reflection of the 2021 season as a whole. Joshua Rogers’ dominance of the third year of the collaborative World Championship between iRacing and Porsche culminated in his fifth main event victory in 10 rounds, putting an exclamation point on a championship campaign that had already been mathematically confirmed going into the race. The title is Rogers’ second in the series, making him the first driver to accomplish the feat.

“I’m incredibly relieved that I can now officially call myself champion again,” Rogers said after the event. “The season was exhausting, exciting and a real rollercoaster ride. At the first events, my qualifying results weren’t exactly what I’d expected. We worked on this as a team and made huge progress. The better grid positions then helped me to achieve the many successes over the rest of the year. It was great fun, especially after experiencing a really bad season in 2020. I think Mitchell (deJong) and I put on another great show for the fans at the final race.”

Mitchell deJong was second in both the feature race and the championship, leading six of the 14 laps in the main event at Monza while trading the point repeatedly with Rogers up until the final stages. Yohann Harth, fresh off a win in Tuesday’s iRacing Rallycross All-Star Invitational, completed the podium, using that and an eighth place finish in the sprint race to punch his way into the top 20 cutoff to retain his series license for 2022.

Defending series champion Sebastian Job’s rollercoaster 2021 campaign ended on an unfortunate low, with results of 29th in the sprint race and a DNF in the feature that included multiple incidents and at one point a rollover. Job walking out of the finale without any points enabled Charlie Collins, the top qualifier on the day, to steal third in the final standings thanks to top five finishes in both races. Dayne Warren would round out the top five behind Job thanks in part to a sprint race victory earlier in the day.

In the All-Star race that took place before the Supercup finale, Borja Zazo and Emily “Emree” Jones split the sprint and feature victories, while Matt Malone scored runner-up results in both races. Jones took the championship among all drivers in the 10-race campaign for popular iRacing streamers and real-world guest drivers.
