With this great start, it is now time to take on Australia's finest in the Virtual Racing School V8 Supercar Online Premier Series with four V8 specialist drivers on iRacing. It is with great pleasure that we can reveal that Dayne Warren (#57), Sam Blacklock (#215), Ethan Warren (#59) and Adam Zeitinger (#000) will be taking on the field in a four man assault. They will also be contesting the Australian Online Supercar Championship as well as the iRacing Official Series.
Between Dayne and Sam, they both hold a total of 4 Official V8 Supercar series championships with Sam the current reigning champion, and have both become some of the strongest in the V8 field in recent years. This pair will be driving the Logitech G Fords in this year's assault.
In Ethan we have a real emerging talent that is improving with each race that goes by, and he will be racing the ASTRO Gaming Holden, with Adam returning to the grid after a long absence and keen to develop in his ASTRO Gaming Ford.
Lastly, it is with GREAT pleasure that we can reveal the cars our V8 drivers will be racing in 2019. Once again and without fail, ILiveries have done an absolutely sensational job of adapting our trademark livery from the GT cars, to our Supercars. Many thanks again to Juandi and his tremendous work.
We are really excited about what 2019 holds with this expansion into V8 Supercar racing. This forms a key pillar in the team's strategy, with strong representation in all of the major events and series on iRacing in Australia, and Europe. Achievement Unlocked!
