Lamborghini Esports: The Real Race 8, Silverstone Results

Lamborghini Esports: The Real Race 8, Silverstone Results

The eighth race event of the 2021 edition of The Real Race presented by Lamborghini Esports took place over the 17th October weekend. As it’s been for many of these races, the EMEA region was on display as the series went to Silverstone in the United Kingdom.

For the majority of the season, race events have featured a pair of races named sprints in which drivers will race for 45 minutes and then race a second time for an hour. Silverstone Circuit is a 5.891-kilometer, 3.661-mile course that features 18 corners, each with its own playful name. Still something as an American that I struggle with, as most of our corners are merely numbered with only a few exceptions.

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 SILVERSTONE: Sherratt dominates again

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before – Jordan Sherratt dominated the entire event. This time at Silverstone, Sherratt was able to pick back up from his slump last time out, where he only was able to win once and finish second on the other race.

The South African avoided early contact with his competitors, pitted perfectly in both races, and went on to sweep the entire event once again. Sherratt defeated Alban Bouquet in both races, by 11 seconds in the first and 13 seconds in the second.

I don’t think anyone else mathematically has a chance to defeat Sherratt with only two races to go in the series. Sherratt leads Tommy Razeyre by 238 points at this juncture, the most in any region. If my math is correct, only 110 points can be gained in the final two events if Sherratt just refused to show up. I might just call this championship over at this point.

NALA Silverstone: Hendrickson sweeps at Silverstone

For a time, it looked like the NALA region would provide the closest point battle among the three regions. That still may end up the case, but it was points leader William Hendrickson sweeping the entirety of the Silverstone event.

Hendrickson took the pole position, and from there, it was seemingly smooth sailing from there. In the first race, Hendrickson beat Brian Kannappan by nearly 21 seconds , which is just about a full second every lap. In the second race, the gap was just over 38 seconds over Eric DeBon, well more than a second per lap.

As it stands, the gap is 57 points between Hendrickson and second place Fidel Moreira. Moreira managed a pair of fourth place finishes, which keep him in contention with two races to go, but the gap is slightly larger than it was earlier in October.

APAC Silverstone: Singh, O’Hara split Silverstone wins

The APAC region had a split decision on Sunday as both Davlish Singh and Andrew O’Hara took home victories in the event. Singh took the pole position and was able to hold off O’Hara for the narrow victory in the sprint race, but race two had a different outcome.

It would be O’Hara taking the second race handedly as Singh was not scored with completing a single lap. Whether it was a connection issue or a crash on the first lap or anything else, Singh wound up in tenth while O’Hara took the win.

With only two races to go in the season, O’Hara leads the APAC region by 59 points over Terry Rayton. Rayton kept himself in contention by finishing right behind O’Hara in both races, third and second respectively. The APAC region was the lowest car count of the weekend with only ten drivers participating.
