Entire Supercars field to compete in Esports series
Countries are being locked down, motorsport events have been cancelled and the sim racing community is coming to our aid. Just yesterday, Formula 1 itself organised a sim race to replace the Bahrain Grand Prix involving personalities such as Lando Norris, Nico Hulkenburg and Jimmy Broadbent.
However, no organisation has managed to get their entire field of official drivers into their replacement events. No organisation so far that is as the Autralian Supercars competitors will all be competing in a series of races aimed at replacing the postponed events.
Set to take place on iRacing using the sim’s Holden ZB Commodores and Ford Mustangs, the Supercars All Stars Eseries is set to take place over 10 weeks starting on 8 April. Rounds will include a mix of the real-world championship’s two-race format, night races, reverse grids and endurance races.
Over the 10 weeks, drivers will compete for points and the title of Supercars All Stars Eseries champion.
As yet, Fox Sports is the only broadcaster to have been announced although Supercars CEO has said, “We expect to announce further broadcasters for the Supercars All Stars Eseries in coming weeks,” including possible freeview outlets. Being hosted by iRacing, let’s hope the races get shown on the platform’s Esports YouTube channel.
The first round taking place on 8 April will be made up of one race at the Phillip Island circuit and a second one at Monza. The rest of the track list is yet to be announced.
