Last September, iRacing’s Steve Myers confirmed the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport would make its way to the PC racing sim. Now, we can set our sights on taking the GT4-class racing machine for a spin in March.
The good news comes courtesy of an announcement from the iRacing Motorsport Simulations team. When released, the Cayman will join the multi-class IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge for 2020 Season 2. In addition, it will also take part in its own support series alongside the Porsche Esports Supercup throughout the 2020 season.
If that weren’t enough already, players will have a chance to take the 718 Cayman for a spin during the IMSA 90 Minutes of Sebring event on March 15.
As a quick reminder, the GT4 Clubsport won’t be the only sports car in its class. Last month, the IMS team confirmed another entry in the GT4 category for the sim: the BMW M4 GT4. It might be a little while before the two are able to go head-to-head on track though; given the time from the announcement of the Cayman to its imminent release next month, we wouldn’t expect the BMW until June at the earliest.
A track-tuned beast, the 718 CS isn’t a machine to take lightly. Power comes from a 3.8-liter, flat-six engine, sending 385hp to the rear wheels. It may not have the brute force advantage over the Bimmer, but the Porsche is lighter on its feet.
While we don’t have much longer to wait, have a look at in-game screenshots of the Porsche in action to kill some time. Stay tuned for more details leading up to its release.
