Real-world racing driver Seb Morris continued his terrific start to life in sim racing for Bentley Motorsport in round two of the SRO E-Sport GT Series on his way to ninth place at a virtual Spa-Francorchamps.

Starting the one-hour encounter at the Belgian track in 37th place, 24-year-old Morris produced a top 10 finish.

“I’m really enjoying racing for Bentley in the virtual championships, the SRO E-Sport GT Series is the main focus for us so to be ninth in the standings, from 50 drivers, is pretty good going so far,” said Chester-based Morris.

“Racing in E-Sports is good to keep me motivated while we’re in lockdown, something to look forward to each week. As a racing driver there’s one purpose really, to drive cars as fast as we can, so this is the next best thing we can do in the current situation.”

The world of online sim racing continues apace for Morris and Bentley with the third round of the SRO E-Sport GT Series on Sunday at a virtual Nurburgring.

Before that, he will today compete online in the newly announced BRDC Esports Championship. Set-up by British Racing Drivers’ Club ‘Superstars’ director Andy Meyrick, who is also Morris’ manager, the series will involve up to 40 members of the BRDC racing virtual Formula 3 cars to help raise money for the NHS. Round one will be at a virtual Silverstone.
