It’s that time of year again, where the best in the world of Aussie Supercars both from the track and the virtual racing world compete on iRacing.
Starting on 20 July and running through to 24 August, the Pro Eseries will feature some of Australia’s and New Zealand’s top sim racers. This includes reigning champion Dayne Warren, Porsche TAG Heuer Esports Supercup top rookie Cooper Webster and our very own Emily Jones.
Then there are the All Stars races featuring the drivers that can be seen in the main Supercars championship and from their support series Super2. Such names include Andre Heimgartner, Thomas Randle, Cam Waters and reigning All Stars Eseries champion Brodie Kostecki. Unfortunately, no Shane van Gisbergen though despite being an avid sim racer and also being 2020 All Stars Eseries champion.
For four of the six rounds, the Pro sim racers and All Stars track racers will compete in separate races. But for the second and penultimate rounds, they will team up to tackle enduro races. The Pro Eseries drivers will compete for their share of a $26,000 AUD prize pool whilst the teams will race to earn a $1,000 cash donation per round for a charity of their choice.
Race Schedule and How to Follow
Announced during the first broadcast of the Eseries last year, iRacing have added two new tracks from Australia, those being Sandown and Winton. This makes five Aussie tracks on iRacing, all of which will be raced at this year, with that one vacant slot left to a track vote by the fans.
