Four drivers remain in contention for the pro SRO E-Sport GT Series title as the season comes to a close this weekend at virtual Kyalami.

Porsche’s Louis Deletraz holds the top spot in the standings on 59 points off the back of his victory at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya last time out.

The Swiss driver sits with a 10-point cushion to his nearest rival, Audi’s Lorenzo Marcucci, however, Deletraz will carry additional success ballast this weekend.

Ben Barnicoat is not far behind on 43 points for McLaren after his win at the Nürburgring and will not race with any success ballast this weekend.

Meanwhile, Ivan Pareras rounds out the title protagonists for Audi but will need his rivals to strike trouble at Kyalami to win with 36 points on the board and 25 to score.

The pro series entry list features a total of 38 cars.

Nine different brands will be represented at the South African circuit, with McLaren the most prolific featuring seven entries, which also includes wildcard Angus Fender.

Alex Fontana, another wildcard, will race for Mercedes-AMG in the colors of his GT World Challenge Asia Powered by AWS squad Zun Motorsport Crew.

The weekend will also see the Silver series in action at Kyalami on Sunday joining the Pro series, while the Am series reaches its climax on Saturday evening at Bathurst.

SRO organizers also announced that drivers will be competing for a spot in the SRO E-Sport GT Series grand finale that will feature the top 20 Pro and Silver Series competitors and the 10 best Am racers.

A date and location for this race will be announced in the lead up to the event.
