Repco Supercars Pro Eseries back bigger and better
Virgin Australia Supercars Championship
By Connor O'Brien
Nine Supercars teams have confirmed their place in an expanded 2020 Repco Supercars Pro Eseries field.
Pitting Australia’s finest sim racers against one another, the competition was hotly contested last year with Walkinshaw Andretti United’s Josh Rogers taking out the title.
Contested on the iRacing platform, the Eseries becomes Repco’s latest investment in the sport after securing category-wide and Bathurst 1000 naming rights from next year. Repco are also backing the SuperSprint event at The Bend this weekend.
The online racing scene surged in popularity earlier this year as the BP Supercars All Stars Eseries – involving every current Supercars driver – took centre stage during the COVID-enforced absence of real-life racing.
For 2020, the pro grid will increase from 12 to at least 19, competing in six weekly rounds from October 28 to December 2.
In addition to standalone entries, Triple Eight, Tickford, Penrite Racing, WAU, Brad Jones Racing, Kelly Racing, Team 18, Matt Stone Racing and Team Sydney have all secured places.
DJR Team Penske is yet to indicate their participation.
