Cash Converters Supercars Eseries returns 25th August

Cash Converters Supercars Eseries returns 25th August

When the Repco Supercars Championship calendar was shifted last month due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the previously announced Supercars Eseries was also moved forward to fill the gap. Originally slated to begin on 15th September, the upcoming dual series will now start on Wednesday, 25th August.

The Cash Converters Supercars Eseries features an All Star lineup of professional drivers as well as a Pro sim racer series. The All Star and Pro Series will both be broadcasted live on Fox Sports 506, Kayo and 7Plus for Australian viewers. Each broadcast is expected to have 90-minute television coverage of races that will begin at 7:30pm AEST. For international fans, the feed will be globally available on the Supercars’ Twitch, Facebook and YouTube channels.

For the All Star side of things, select competitors of the Repco Supercars Championship and the Dunlop Super 2 Series will go head to head at a handful of NASCAR oval tracks in iRacing‘s current Supercar models. The Pro Series will be made up of qualified elite sim racers chosen through a draft. Those Pro drivers will represent Supercars teams and major brands competing for their share of the $26,500 prize pool. The Pro champion will take home $10,000.

There will be one race week where both series will compete together, on 22nd September for the Mount Panorama Circuit Enduro. All Stars will pair up with Pro drivers in the combined event. The drivers and teams were announced on Wednesday. Here’s how both field stack up.

A slew of sponsors are jumping on to sponsor this year’s Eseries competition, including Shure, Pioneer DJ, Swyftx, Logitech, Shannons, Next Level Racing and Auckland Unlimited. This goes for the supplementary vehicles too, in the form of the Ford GTE BP Ultimate Safety Car.

The Pro sim racing drivers all competed for a chance at being drafted to a team in the Eseries Top 10 Showdown. Higher seeding allowed for a better chance at getting drafted for the series.

It all kicks off on Wednesday, 25th August. Check out the schedule below.
