Giti Motorsports Calendar

June 29, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Now that the coronavirus response has started to wind down and bear the virus the Motorsports calendar has finally been released! Here is an overview of the events as well as some highlights for the competition:

June

This year’s Giti motorsports calendar kicks off with a returning classic! Nürburgring, meaning Green Hell in German, is a classic course that pits top teams from all over the globe in one place! These races gather top teams from around the world to race in Germany. One of the main highlights of last year’s event that is making a comeback is Giti’s all-female team. They made their debut in last year’s competition and will surely be making a stellar showing this year!

If that were not enough, truck racing is making history this year by entering the online racing for the first time! The first debut will be in June, Norbert Kiss, who has won six out of six races, had taken the top place in virtual qualifying. He has surely set the standard for other drivers attempting to enter this space. But the other drivers are not going to let him continue that lead! They are all putting in work to catch up to Kiss, who is currently in the lead by a whopping 36 points the rankings, however, do not count out his opponents as he noted after a recent race in Slovakia that, “Everybody is getting quicker and they are getting closer.”

The only person even close from falling behind Kiss is Sascha Lenz who has continued to catch up to Kiss over the past three races. His showing has been impressive since he is the only one to have placed in all six races besides Kiss. 

Other drivers are still showing incredible promise as well. Téo Calvet has struggled a bit in one of the races, sat out one, and barely missed getting on the podium in another. He will surely be a competitor for Kiss. Antonio Albacete has also improved dramatically in his simulator ability. He admits that learning the skill is challenging but that he enjoys it. Even though there will be plenty of talent for the rest of the year, the fact that truck racing has now gone virtual will surely be one of the highlights of the year and will change the way the sport is performed for years to come.
