Quality field for second Speedcafe eSeries Championship round
Thursday 13th April, 2023 - 7:00pm
A high-quality field will take to the track for the Round 2 of the 2023 Speedcafe eSeries Championship at Road America tomorrow.
The second round of the all-new online racing competition on iRacing will feature the top 10 finishers from the opening round of the season, with the remaining 30 competitors stepping up from a field of 40 that took part in pre-qualifying for the event.
The 40 qualifiers will be joined by Josh Muggleton, who once again returns as the featured driver for the category.
Round 2 will see the introduction of prizes courtesy of Supercheap Auto, with the round winner receiving a $250 voucher, the runner-up to receive a $100 voucher, while the third-place finisher will receive a $50 voucher.
Category Manager Shane Evans said despite it being early in the season, the action on track is getting increasingly competitive.
“Pre-Qualifying was especially competitive with the top 10 already locked in, so that made it more difficult for those wanting to make it into the main race,” Evans said.
“The three fastest qualifiers Wayne Hewitt, Timothy Russell and Kody Deith backed up their form from Round 1, SuperUtes racer Aaron Borg is another returnee, while there are a couple of new names that will feature in Round 2 including Andre Yousiff, Thomas Hinss and Tyce Hodge.
“There are also prizes on the line now, which will naturally add to the intensity of the competition.”
Evans is anticipating a highly entertaining outing for the second round of the 2023 season.
“We’ve got a lot to live up to because from all accounts Round 1 was a pretty good showing,” he added.
“There are some fast times there so it looks like it is going to be a competitive race once again.”
The second round of the 2023 Speedcafe eSeries Championship will commence on Friday, April 14 with a 45-minute practice session, with the times from that session to determine the three qualifying groups.
The three qualifying groups will each take part in a 10-minute session that will set the grid for the race.
The 45-minute race around Road America will feature a compulsory pit stop for fuel.
The broadcast for Round 2 of the 2023 Speedcafe eSeries Championship commences at 19:50 AEST live on Speedcafe.com, with the main race expected to take place at approximately 20:40 AEST.
