The title has been decided at the final round, as Nils Naujoks wins the 2021 British GT4 Esports Championship. Qualifying on pole at Donington Park, the BMW Motorsports Sim G2 Esports driver was able to ease away from the field and title challenge Jack McIntyre.
McIntyre faced the challenge of coming through from fifth on the grid, and carrying 30kg of success ballast. In the end the Zansho Rocket Simsport driver made it though to finish second, with the podium completed by the Alpine of Team Fordzilla’s Charlie Crossland in third.
In the end it wasn’t enough, as Naujoks took the win in the 60 minute race, and the championship title. His rewards include a Fanatec €2,000 prize bundle, and an automatic GT World Challenge Europe Esports Championship entry.
McIntyre finished second in the GT4 standings, with Moritz Loehner in third (Dorr Esports McLaren 570S GT4).
While the GT4 series had to be decided at Donington, the GT3 series had already been claimed by James Baldwin at the previous Silverstone round. With Baldwin choosing to focus on real world motorsport commitments, it was Angus Fender who stepped up to take the win in his Century BMW M6.
Second place went to Michael O’Brien, followed by Jody Fannin in third. This all means Fender finishes the season as runner-up to Baldwin, followed by Fannin for JMW Motorsport.
