Job Scores Second Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup Win of 2021 at Silverstone

Sebastian Job’s quest to score his second consecutive Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup title is back on track after Saturday. Job became the first repeat winner of both the 2021 season, and in the series’ history at Silverstone Circuit, when he took the checkered flag in the feature race in spite of an early-race incident with Tommy Ostgaard.

Entering the weekend nearly 90 points behind points leader and 2019 series champion Joshua Rogers thanks to a 24th place result last weekend at Imola, Job looked to replicate his podium finishes at the famed British circuit in each of the past two years. He qualified third and finished fourth in the sprint race, before quickly working his way up to second behind Ostgaard after the eight-car invert at the front of the final grid.

The duo would make contact, allowing Rogers to take the lead and Mack Bakkum to slot into second as Job fell to third and Ostgaard would fall to the fringe of the top 10. Job would track down Bakkum and make the pass for second again on Lap 7, and a lap later, would find his way ahead of Rogers for good. The Australian would put on a spirited challenge, but would eventually fall just .290 seconds short in the closest finish yet in 2021.

The podium would hold in place for the rest of the race, with Graham Carroll and rookie Charlie Collins settling into the top five at roughly the same time and sprint race winner Mitchell deJong holding onto sixth at the end of the lead pack, which was separated by just over a second. Subsequent trouble for Ostgaard would drop him to a disappointing 26th at race’s end.

Prior to the main show, the Porsche All-Star Race shifted to the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport for the first time on Saturday. In a high-attrition pair of events, P.O. “Depielo” Valette took the sprint race victory, but it was Emily “Emree” Jones who tracked down Jaroslav Honzik in the second half of the feature to earn that victory.
