ESL R1 release changed calendar

Recently, the ESL R1 calendar was changed, moving the last two competition dates to mid-May and the first week of June. After the season was originally supposed to end on the last weekend in May, the season now ends in the first week of June, which also means that the date of the RENNSPORT summit has also been pushed back.

An update to the ESL R1 inaugural season schedule on RACING was posted on the series website and in version 1.2 of the ESL R1 rulebook on April 5th. The rulebook changelog states that dates for both Round 8 and the Spring Major were updated on March 15, and the entire new rulebook was only shared with teams yesterday, April 5.

These new dates are now May 15th for Round 8, which is still scheduled to take place online, and June 3rd and 4th for the Spring Major at the RENNSPORT Summit in Munich, Germany. The other dates, including the next round of the championship this weekend, remain the same.

In the previous four rounds of the championship, R8G Esports has held its own at the top of both the team and driver standings. The team leads second-placed Team Redline by a nice 69 points, while both Jiri Toman and Marcell Csincsik lead the rest of the field, Toman with 181 points, Csincsik with 158 and third-placed Porsche Coanda’s Joshua Rogers with 140 points .

This change could potentially impact another sim racing series on a different platform that some drivers will be competing in in 2023. The Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup on iRacing is set to end its season on the same day as the first day of the RACING Summit, June 3rd.

This could affect riders like Maximilian Benecke (MOUZ), Jamie Fluke (Apex Racing Team), Yohann Harth (Apex Racing Team) and Tuomas Tähtelä (HEROIC), who compete in both top-level series. Benecke, Fluke and Harth are in the upper half of the table in both championships, so that’s something to keep an eye on.

If you missed yesterday’s video, fear not – we’re here to remind you! 🤝

We’re racing this Friday and Monday in Round 5 of the #ESLR1 Spring Season at the Hockenheimring! 💥
