Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19, the Virgin Australian Supercars Championship Calendar has been put on-hold. However, a in bid to continue with some form of racing, Supercars have announced a BP Supercars All Stars Eseries, a virtual online racing platform through iRacing computer simulation.
All drivers will be able to compete in the comfort of their own home, with a champion to be awarded at the end of the Series.
For Penrite driver David Reynolds, this is a system he is not particularly familiar with.
“I haven’t really done much simulator racing. A lot of the younger guys have and are quite reliant on it with their training, but for me it’s not something I am familiar with,” admitted Reynolds.
“It’s certainly going to be interesting. I don’t think I’ll be that great at it to be honest, but it’ll be a bit of fun anyway.”
The action will be broadcast on Fox Sports, Kayo, Supercars.com and social channels, and game streaming service Twitch.
Round one will kick off Wednesday 8th April, 7pm AEST.
