Starting today, live coverage of the 2023 Porsche Esports Challenge USA finals at Laguna Seca, California’s Porsche Rennsport Reunion 7, will begin.

Rennsport Reunion, which was established in 2001, is the biggest meeting of vintage Porsche race vehicles in the world. After moving there for Rennsport Reunion 4, the event has since been conducted every three years or so, most recently at Laguna Seca.

The Porsche-organized event features a series of races in which race cars from throughout the brand’s history compete, frequently alongside drivers from the eras in which they were built. This year’s event also celebrates the brand’s 75th anniversary.

Even though it only covers half of the circuit, there is a race for the Porsche-Diesel tractor from the middle of the 1950s. Just picture having to navigate the Corkscrew in a tractor.

This year’s Gran Turismo 7 serves as the event’s host for the Porsche Esports Challenge USA, which runs on both the event’s Friday and Saturday at the on-site Bose Esports Arena.

A total of 16 drivers competed in a series of in-game time trials and live events at Porsche dealers around the USA to earn their spots in the competition. Especially noteworthy among them are the champion from 2022, Randall Haywood, and the two runner-ups, Dean Heldt and Andrew McCabe.

Numerous more well-known GT World Series racers have qualified for the event, including Daniel Solis, a two-time Manufacturer Series world winner, as well as regulars Robbie Heck, Donovan Parker, and Kevan Pounder.

On Friday, there will be two semi-final groups competing in the same three races—the Vision GT at Road Atlanta, the Cayman GT4 at Watkins Glen, and the Porsche 959 at Laguna Seca. The top four drivers in each group will then proceed to the final and two more races, using the 911 RSR at Spa and the 917K at Daytona Road for the grand final.

It will all be broadcast live on Porsche’s Twitch channel and as part of the overall event live stream below, starting at 0000 UTC on Saturday 30 September and the same time on Sunday 1 October — or 1700 local time on Friday/Saturday.
