Gt Sport players meet at Pfaff Porsche 28423400_1884352701575173_7620324645228584148_o

Last weekend, Canada’s top 16 fastest drivers met up for an awesome pre-tournament meet at Pfaff Porsche and then raced wheel-to-wheel for $25,000, exclusive automotive prizing, and the Canadian Championship title the very next day. An exciting weekend to say the least!

It all started on January 13th with online qualifier time trials. Drivers raced on one of the four designed tracks using Gran Turismo Sport’s Lap Attack mode and submitted their best lap times. The 10 fastest Drivers from each of the four pre-selected tracks will qualify for the Race of Champions Qualifier.

The Race of Champions Qualifier, on February 11th, was intense. The top 40 qualifying drivers from the previous online qualifier raced online to determine the 16 that will compete in the Pfaff GT Sport Championships. The top 16 Canadian drivers were deemed to be: Silvia_Drift (31, Brampton, ON), Monster-Sport71 (24, Barrie, ON), Deutschbag416 (41, Toronto, ON), JGOERTZ5 (20, Langley, BC), hotsaucer (24, Toronto, ON), Djow-Al (22, Montreal, QC), ImEbrahimX7 (22, Montreal, QC), beatin_the_odds (48, Ft.Saskatchewan, AB), putput44 (23, Mississauga, ON), RacingKing89674 (20, Toronto, ON), TheRaceboy77 (25, Calgary, AB), Speeding_Kadi (22, Montreal, QC), Nic-KL (27, Trois-Rivieres, QC), Micky_MikE88 (29, Sherbrooke, QC), Turismo-lester (33, Edmonton, AB), and The-EH-team-43 (24, Uxbridge, ON).


Then came the big day: The GT Sport Championships held at Cineplex Colossus Vaughan on February 25th. Door opened at 11:00 am EST and the first two-race heat started at 12:00 pm sharp. Racing in identically-prepped Porsche 911 RSR cars, the drivers could only rely on two things to push them forward in the race: their own driving skills and capitalizing on others drivers’ mistakes. A full house in the theatre watched from the edge of their seats in suspense. Who will be crowned the top GT Sport driver in all of Canada? It was anyone’s race.
Prizes for the national finals were as follows:1st Place:
$8,000+ Piloti Racing Gear valued at $3,000.

Porsche RSR carbon fiber rear wing.
All expense trip weekend at Grand Prix of Long Beach, California.

2nd Place: $4,000

3rd Place: $2,000

4th Place: $2,000

5th – 6th Place: $1,500

11th – 12th Place: $500

13th – 14th Place: $400

15th – 16th Place: $300

The final race would be the longest of the day (three laps at the Nordshcleife), not to mention the most intense. From the off it was an all-out sprint, with Waring (Monster-Sport71) and Bigauskas (hotsaucer) running nose-to-tail the majority of the race. They would swap spots multiple times, even going two-wide throughout the track.

Racing in very similar liveries, Carrier (Nic-KL) and Thorogood (TheRaceboy77) were racing furiously for 3rd place. The tournament took the stage nationwide and online as the close battle for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd continued.


Four races, four wins: it was a clean sweep for Andrew Waring (Monster-Sport71) as he took 1st place. He took home $8,000, an all-expense 3-day weekend to Grand Prix of Long Beach, California, and an exclusive Porsche RSR Carbon Fibre Hood valued at $10,000! Congratulations from Pfaff Porsche on the impeccable driving! Bigauskas took home $4,000 and a 911 RSR hood, while Thorogood pocketed $2,000 and a hood from Pfaff Automotive as well.
