Lamborghini Esports: The Real Race 7, Catalunya Results

The seventh race event of the 2021 edition of The Real Race presented by Lamborghini Esports took place over the 3rd October weekend. Once again, the EMEA region was on display as the series went to Catalunya in Spain.

Another round with a pair of sprint races per region, this particular venue is 4.655-kilometers or 2.892-miles in length. The course, like Zandvoort on Assetto Corsa Competizione, is an older model of the track having been updated in 2021. This layout has 16 corners and is slightly smaller in length than the current layout because of it.

As it’s been all season, qualifiers were open beforehand to get the 20 best in each region entered into the event. After closed qualifying the day before, the dual races per region took place on Sunday. APAC ran first, the EMEA group second, and NALA would run later on in the day.

The full results are available on The Real Race website. The series utilizes the Assetto Corsa Competizione platform.

EMEA CATALUNYA: Sherratt, Bonaccorsi split wins

All season long, it’s pretty much been the Jordan Sherratt show in the EMEA region. Entering Barcelona, Sherratt only has one loss all season, coming at Laguna Seca in the feature race. The domination continued into qualifying as Sherratt took pole position for the event.

In the sprint, however, the start of the race proved again that Sherratt was not completely unbeatable. Tommy Razeyre was able to get in front for a few moments after starting alongside. It didn’t take long, however, for Sherratt to take it back.

Razeyre kept Sherratt honest, and opted for an early pit when the window opened. Unfortunately, a miscue with the pit limiter meant a speeding penalty for Razeyre, ultimately ending his chances early. Sherratt went on to take the victory over Beniamin Baumann and Marcello Bonaccorsi.

In the feature race, 15 minutes longer than the sprint, Sherratt was able to get a better start, but Baumann kept it close through the first couple of corners. Baumann was forced out and attempted to make a move back inside of Sherratt, but before he could get low, he connected and sent Sherratt spinning wildly into the path of Carlo Barberi.

As Sherratt recovered and began his march forward, the damage for Barberi was significant and a penalty for Baumann was dished out. That handed the race over to Bonaccorsi, but it would not be an easy win by any stretch.

Knowing that he would be forced to serve a penalty during his pit stop, Baumann kept it on track and in the lead. Bonaccorsi just couldn’t get around, but waited it out patiently until the pit window would open.

Razeyre was back in the picture after having to start deep in the field. He and Mathys Leitao kept it close, but it was Bonaccorsi who struck first for the undercut. When things cycled through, Baumann cycled behind Sherratt, who worked his way back into the picture. Sherratt could only get back to third as Razeyre finished runner-up to the new winner, Bonaccorsi.

It’s not official yet, but it should be mathematically over in the EMEA championship. Sherratt has 354 points after his double podium at Catalunya. His closest competitor, Razeyre, would have needed at least three more points to be able to make up the remaining distance. As long as Sherratt starts any of the final three events, he should lock it up without question.

NALA CATALUNYA: Hendrickson wins both races

The NALA region pole may have gone to Fidel Moreira, but it was his championship rival William Hendrickson taking double victory at Catalunya over the weekend.

The two had a spirited first race as the margin was only six tenths between the two. In the second race, however, Hendrickson was able to win by nearly two seconds over Moreira. Gabriel Felipe finished in third in both races as well.

APAC CATALUNYA: O’Hara sweeps the weekend

For Andrew O’Hara, Catalunya was about 105 minutes of perfect driving for him in the APAC region. O’Hara took the pole, the Sprint and the Feature with seemingly little to battle against. For the first time, Egor Ogorodnikov did not show, so it was a perfect moment for O’Hara to pull away in the standings.

O’Hara now leads Ogorodnikov by 50 points with only three races to go. Only ten drivers qualified for the APAC region this weekend.
